I've submitted my sitemaps to Google, Ask, and yahoo with no problems but when I try to submit to Bing on 3 different computers PC and Macs Bing rejects without any warning all sitemaps with a dash. post-sitemap.xml for example won't be added. If I remove the dash it allows me to add it. (but of course that does me no good.)

  • Are you sure the dash is the issue? I highly doubt that it's that, I think it's actually the fact that there's images in there... – Joost de Valk Sep 28 '11 at 15:21

It's actually not an issue at all, it works just like it's supposed to, be sure to submit the index sitemap though, not the individual ones, so submit sitemap_index.xml.

See this screenshot for reference to show that it works:

  • Thank you for your help. I have submitted that several times and it returns errors once crawled. sitemap_index.xml Errors found Unknown type 0 urls submitted. Any other suggestions? – user7262 Oct 25 '11 at 15:27
