    1 sitemap.xml files have format errors


    Hi Guys,

    I ran a site crawl on semrush and it says "1 sitemap.xml files have format errors "

    When I open my sitemap from semrush this is displayed at the top: This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
    Would you say this is reason my sitemap has format errors?

    And one last question regarding my sitemap, I have given my homepage <priority>1.00</priority> and then most other pages have a <priority>0.80</priority> Did I do it right? Any other tips?

    Thanks,

    Claire.

    Hi, it's more accurate to check with Google Webmaster tool. Try to submit your sitemap.xml to Webmaster tool and check is the error persist.
