    help, nothing is happening, looks like the site ask,com is busy, but can as be my mistake. Do i have to upload the xml file to web carpet? i copy pasted the generated sitemap to Word and saved it as word file with xml extension. Is it alright? The reason is i did that because when i downloaded the sitemap it was called sitemap.xml.hxtml something like that. so i thought may i nee
    d to rename it or create another file.
