    Google showing error in my sitemap, help!!!

    have uploaded a sitemap for a few of my sites that are part of a network and one of them include patriotsrush.com. On my google webmaster page I get this error.

    Network unreachable: robots.txt unreachable
    We were unable to crawl your Sitemap because we found a robots.txt file at the root of your site but were unable to download it. Please ensure that it is accessible or remove it completely.

    At first I wasn;t using a robots.txt file at all and I was getting the error so i put in a blank robots file but Im still getting this error. I dont understand because the site packersrush.com works just fine and the sitemap has been indexed and everything. Any help is appriciated.

    Where is your sitemap file? I think it has to be in the root directory.

    Try adding this line to robots.txt:

    Sitemap: <sitemap_location>

    I added an allow command in my robots.txt file to allow the sitemap.xml file. Hope it works.

    As you saying it seems that you have a no of website hosted on a single hosting account...
    If it is the case then check directory structure and you main domain's robots.txt file may be that file restricted to accessed...
