Where do I place my Sitemap?
must be renamed to sitemap.xml and uploaded to your root directory of your web site.
How big can my Sitemap be?
should be no larger than 10MB (10,485,760 bytes) and can contain a
maximum of 50,000 URLs.
What do I do after I create my Sitemap?
Once you have created the Sitemap and placed it on your webserver, you should create
a file called robots.txt to tell search engines where your site map is located.
If this file already exists on your website just add the line "Sitemap: " as shown below.
You can submit your new sitemap directly
to search engines that support the Sitemaps protocol, or use the
Free Search Engine Submission Tool at HugeToolBox.com.
You can also create an account and log into
www.google.com/webmasters and submit your sitemap there.
Some of the pages on my site use frames. Should I include
the frameset URLs or the URLs of the frame contents?
Will the "priority" hint in the XML Sitemap change the
ranking of my pages in search results?
hint in your Sitemap only indicates the importance of a particular URL
relative to other URLs on your own site and does not imply any effect on
the ranking of your pages in search results.
Please read the SiteMap FAQ for help and additional information on
creating and implementing sitemaps.
