Validate your sitemap with JSONLint

If you're having problems importing a sitemap ("invalid JSON"), try checking it first on the JSONLint validator website at

It will help you narrow down errors by flagging the line(s). Usually the problem is missing or extra punctuation, or unescaped special characters. As a bonus, it will also "prettify" your JSON and make it easier to read (this is for the humans; WS doesn't really care).

It the site reports "Valid JSON", you can import it into WS.
