Google Webmaster Sitemap errors when using feed redirection

Google Webmaster tool throws out crawl errors whenever a blogger redirected feed (one example is Feedburner) is used as a sitemap.

Not found
Restricted by robots.txt

The solution to it is to add a no redirect flag to the url that is going to be use as a sitemap.

FeedBurner Services provided to publishers include traffic analysis and an optional advertising system. Though it initially was not clear whether advertising would be well-suited to the RSS format, authors now choose to include advertising in two-thirds of FeedBurner's feeds. Users can find out how many people have subscribed to their feeds and with what service/program they subscribed.


Example:

http://www.geekomad.com/atom.xml

Change to:

http://www.geekomad.com/atom.xml?redirect=false

Or for better one

http://www.geekomad.com/atom.xml?redirect=false&max-results=100
