    Sitemaps are your way of ensuring that search engines and customers
    find everything that they are looking for. By adding a simple sitemap for
    your customers, they will have a map of your website at their fingertips.
    This will make it easier for them to find what they are looking for and the
    links will be picked up by the search engines. There are sitemap
    generators all over the internet. Here is my favorite for you to use: You must ensure that you have a regular
    page that is a sitemap and an xml sitemap. XML is a language that is
    different from the one that we use to display a webpage and it is strictly
    for the search engines. The sitemap generator above makes both an html
    sitemap and an xml sitemap. You need to upload these 2 sitemaps to the
    root of your website by opening it in your html editor. Once that is done,
    you need to submit this sitemap to Google and let them know that this site
    is yours. You submit your website here: Copy the list of urls from
    your html sitemap and add it to a notebook file. Save the file as urllist.txt,
    submit it to Yahoo at:

    I havent used that one, but is excellent.

    I agree. A sitemap is important for any site. But especially if you have deep pages that are not linked to much.

    However, for a site with dynamic content that has links between all pages (eg a forum or a blog) a site map is largely redundant.

    I agree sitemap really helps to put your website in the search engine map for people to find it.

    I used but they have restriction of 500 urls. So I found module for my drupal cms and now it auto generates the xml and also submits to google and other engines periodically. That makes my life easier instead of creating them periodically. How is that for saving time?
