One of Google requirement is setting up a sitemap both for search engine use and visitors to the hub. i have already setup sitemap for my hub at Google webmaster tool but i am unsure how to setup one for my hubs and if it is necessary. i have grouped my hubs into categories yet no change in the sitemap status for visitors and i read somewhere that maybe i should use a hub for this purpose.HELP
I'm a bit confused as you state that you did setup a sitemap for Google WMT, but then are asking about using sitemaps?
Perhaps you can explains the question with more details and I can try to assist you further.
hello Matthew Meyer
This is the message i keep getting . This website is not following sitemap for users guidelines "Offer a site map to your users with links that point to the important parts of your site. If the site map has an extremely large number of links, you may want to break the site map into multiple pages.
I have placed a sitemap in my Google webmaster tool and it seems to work fine yet when i scan my site with their feedthebot tool the message keep appearing. which means there is something more i need to do on my site.

Could be a silly question, but from what I understand our subdomain is seen independently by itself, so can we submit a site map to webmaster (google)?Thanks
