Why Does My Sitemap Have Gray Links?

Last update: 23 June, 2016

Gray links in your sitemap are not something for concern. They simply identify the URLs that your browser has recently visited. As this is browser specific, you may or may not see different gray URLs depending on the browser and computer you are using to view your sitemap.

Note: Google does not see the browser formatting as they retrieve the xml source code.
