Hi there,

Google have recently changed the way sitemaps are submitted and we are about to update our tutorial, here are the steps:-

In Google Webmaster:
1) Click on the "Sitemaps" link in the menu on the left of your dashboard.
2) Enter 'sitemap.xml' after your URL and click on 'Submit Sitemap'


Your site will verified and you should see the following screen:


You have now verified your site with Google Webmaster tools and submitted a sitemap. Once Google crawls your site you will be able to log into your Google Webmaster account for data that will help you optimize your site for search engines.
