    Custom and generated sitemap both fail on Google Webmaster Tools

    I tried creating my own sitemap.xml using sitemap.org and google`s guidelines, but got the "X" on google webmaster tools.

    I decided to use Google XML Sitemap`s plugin by Arne Brachhold, but am still getting the "X" on google webmaster tools.

    I submitted both urls to google as follows:
    www.magazine (please combine ->) library.jp
    magazine (please combine ->) library.jp

    However, I am still getting the "X" on google webmaster tools.

    The sitemap is on:
    magazine (please combine ->) library.jp/news/sitemap.xml

    If someone could please take a look at it, I would highly appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    I get a validation error on the www version of that URL, while http://magazinelibrary.jp/news/sitemap.xml validates fine.

    Looks like a misconfiguration somewhere. Why doesn't your site resolve no-www to www version?

    I am on shared hosting and am not sure why it is not resolving properly. Any ideas?
