  • Making Your XML Sitemap a Little More Useful

    I've had a sitemap for this site for quite a while. Google (and the various other search engines) loves them some sitemaps, since it helps them crawl your site a little faster and more efficiently. For those of you wondering what a sitemap is, it is a XML document that contains an element for every public-facing page in your web site. A good sitemap follows the standard setup by Sitemaps.org, a collaboration between Google, Yahoo, and Microsoft to establish a standard sitemap format. You can deviate from the sitemap protocol if you're feeling rebellious, but the search engines will respond by ignoring your sitemap (and perhaps your site in the process).
