i have resubmited a sitemap to google. Is it good or bad? Does that mean that i have to wait again?
Google came back to me telling me that i've gon URL error. one of the items was taking to long to load up. It didn't take me too long to open up the page.

Have i done something wrong by resubmiting the sitemap again?

thanks

nothing bad if u resubmit your sitemap, actually, its good when your sitemap changes, you can resubmit it to Google to let it know, its normal that u got that error because google crawl cant load that page at the time maybe the server is busy when they crawl your site or that page, so they skip it for a while and then it will reported to u, but dont worry next time google crawl your site they will check that page again.

additional info google crawler set approximate time to each page on your site, so they must crawl your site base on the time limit they set on u, maybe on that time it takes time to load that page and they exceed the time limit so they skip it.
