    Submiting a sitemap is killing me. I have tried to write like this:

    http ://

    It is not working. All I get is Errors. Look below.

    What should I do? What should I write in the litle window before “Submit sitemap” ?

    General HTTP error: 404 not found
    We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

    Thank you
