I have been using an online sitemap creator, and need to know how your SiteMapper deals with 301 redirects.

I'm getting the following error in my webmaster sitemaps:

"When we tested a sample of URLs from your Sitemap, we found that some URLs redirect to other locations. We recommend that your Sitemap contain URLs that point to the final destination (the redirect target) instead of redirecting to another URL."

Will your SiteMapper index the final destination URL?

Redo the sitemap so it picks up the new pages rather than the old pages. A 301 redirect is a permanent change, so best to clean up the sitemap for the best results.
