google states that my site map is:

""Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead""

How do i insert there interperation of a web site??

"" Upload it into the domain root folder of your website.""

I cant find the root folder although i have searched!!

This has cropped up as i am red paged with google as ""deceptive site ahead"" and am trying to clean everything, dont know how long this has been like this.

Thanks to anybody who can explain whats wrong

your sitemap looks good.

Where do you see this message (maybe a prtscrn helps)?

The root of your website is the first layer of your webserver with files in it.

That happens from time to time and is an issue in Google Webmaster Tools. Try to resubmit your sitemap and wait, normally it goes away after some time.

I think it is more a problem with the toolcheck from google. i see on internet more text like above, saying it's more a google problem then from somebody else.

Check a few times more or wait a bit then check again.

So no worry, again your sitemap looks good.
