    I just wanted to know if you have used sitemap for vbulletin and how it has affected your site.

    I have owned my site for over 2 years and all the time my site has had 9,000 pages in google. I submitted a sitemap for my site www.mcseworld.com and I now have 140,000 pages in google and roughly 3 x more traffic :)

    There is a hack currently available at vbulletin.org if you are interested. Just search for "Google Site Map".

    @Miranda:

    Yes - it generally helps Googlebot to get the indexing job done a little easier. vBulletin forums, like any site with dynamic scripts with query strings & session IDs, make the indexing process somewhat less effective. The Google Site Map helps them identify new pages immediately.

    Ditto, the hack is an excellent piece which also is now Yahoo compatable compiling URLs per line in a neat .txt file.

    Thank-you for the support guys. I encourage all vBulletin forum admins to install our Google / Yahoo sitemap generator.
