Copy the link for the tngsitemapindex.xml file (the large bold link) and then put that into your Google Webmaster Tools sitemap settings if you have this set up, or place it in your robots.txt file like this


Sitemap: http://lisaandroger.com/tngsitemapindex.xml


and Google will find it there.

In the event of a problem
