Google Sitemap

I just saw this on Google's webmaster tools page
and was wondering if anyone could offer any advice as to what it means and how to fix it etc.


All the URLs in your Sitemap have the same priority.
All the URLs in your Sitemap are set to the same priority (not the default priority). Priority indicates the importance of a particular URL relative to other URLs on your site, and doesn't impact your site's performance in search results. If all URLs have the same priority, Google can't tell which are more important.

Make the main pages in the file 1.0 priority. Index, About, Contact etc and any pages that are regularly updated.

Make any sub pages 0.8 and pages like FAQ's and Privacy as 0.5

The easiest way if you have hundreds of pages is to use the search term of '1.0' in your web editor and replace them with 0.8 or 0.5 and then do the ones that need to be seen as 1.0 by hand.

Re-submit once all done.
