Google Sitemap





Tony The Tiger
Once I create a sitemap.xml file, put it in my root directory and place it here http://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/showaddsitemap?hl=en how long until I get crawled, thumbnailed, and indexed?

Submitting a saite map does not guarantee being indexed and or thumbnailed. it might get you crawled or partially crawled. Getting indexed and listed in Googles results pages depends on much mre than just creating and submitting a sitemap. is your site crawler friendly? is the subjet metter of your site easily understood by a machine? Does the title of your site have you keywords in it? are there headings with keywords that describe your content? Is the text in in your links descriptive of the pages they link to?
It is often said that One page optimization is 20% of SEO. I think this is ust so much BS.
Once you've got google, MSN and Yaho looking at your pages yo have to make it plain to them what your site si about. you've got to make easy for the SEs to see that not only is your site about "X" but that you actually have smoethign to say about "X." Submitting your site map will get a few pages crawled and if there are no easily found links to your subordinate pages or if many pages are three or more links away from the root you're making it too difficult for the SEs to crawl your site. Now if you've got 1500 links to various parts of your site it might happen. But when you submit your site be sure it has a structure that is simple and easy to follow, Make sure you've optimized the pages for keywords that indicate wht the subject it. Make sure there are links to all your pages on the first m=page or on second leve sites at least.
Yesterday I submitted a site's stiemap to Google there was an error so I resubmitted it a few minutes later. Last night I was crawled not the entire site but it's a beginning.
The site map is but one aspect of getting ndexed and listed. You must get back links. You must have decent On page optimization.
Nw that you've got google looking examine your site, check for keyword place ment make use of style sheets to allow the use of <h1> and <h2> tages. Check your title for keyords DO NOT put "blah.com home page" or some such in your title But tell folks (and the SEs) what you're about. if you're about Smelly Socks pt that in your title not "The Smelly Sock Page" but "Smelly Socks" this'll help keep your KW density up. look for keyowrd analyzers onteh net there's plenty of 'em check your KW density Check for placement of Key words and emphasis on them.
There are so many other tips and tricks on the net search 'em out and ead up on how to optimize your page. Get links

First, go to http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ and then enter the url of your domain name, set the frequency of your site updates and other settings and then click on the start button.

then download the xml sitemap and then submit your sitemap to google ( http://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/login ) so that google can crawl your site often .

Plz ask again in case of any doubts.

Despite all the typos, that was an excellent response, BlackBart. You made a lot of good points and I would agree 100%. Creating a Google SiteMap is way down near the bottom of my typical SEO to-do list.

Then you're dumb, because the sitemap will help google index your pages easier.

Dumby.

"Dumby"?

What are you... like 6 years old or something?

Moreover, if you read what I wrote carefully you'll see that I never said 'DON'T DO A SITEMAP' or that "I WOULD NEVER CREATE A SITEMAP" but rather there are more important things one can do to get good ranking in Google SERPS. Creating a site map may not be high on my SEO to-do list but it's nevertheless still on the list.

Sheesh... Mad

To create a site map you need to run the Python script on the server.
How did you do it on Frihost?
