Must be Google either telling you about a previous situation where the sitemap did not worked or just mistaking (it occurs), because there is no problem with your sitemap : http://www.smart-it-consulting.com/inte ... /index.htm
Schema validating with XSV 2.10-1 of 2005/04/22 13:10:49

Same with your sitemapIdex (the only file to submit by the way) :

As your portal and forum took forever to load it could as well be just a timeout to cause the error.

You should consider upgrading your server IMHO and see if you can optimize your script a bit, because :
[ Time : 1.189666s | 45 Queries | GZIP : ON ]


to load http://www.mobtal.net/v1/viewforum.php?f=9
45 queries is a lot here for a forum with two topics.

Thank you very much..must be google, because today I resubmitted and it said verified no errors. hmm.
anyway..about the queries... My phpbb is premodded with a lot of MODifications.. over 50..and I added myself some more. So I guess is not compared to a normal vanilla version of phpbb.
Thank you very much for explaining me all.
And one more question. How can I see what google is indexing from my website? I mean if I write an article to NEWS section... and let's say it's a very very searched keyword .. the news headline, how can I see if google indexed it? I didnt managed to fin anything in my google account.
Thanks

Great :D

For the off topic, robotstats is a great tool to use to track bots visits, but the only "proof" is Google listing and cache.

To check the listing, you'll have to use site:www.exampl.com eventually followed by more keyword to search for in your site only, allowing you to narrow the result a bit around your target.

To check Google's cache just use cache:www.example.com in the Google search box.(example )

Ask in the Google forum if you like to find out more.
