    I guess its a different type of site that would need that much updating with regular news etc my site gets google raping it all over the place as is, its like watching something you shouldn't!

    However for other sites I can see the good in it, were working towards more streamlined feeds, info is power, 2nd place is no place, and if its just for their benefit then I suppose were all willing :)

    I've got my first sitemap submitted for a simple, static site. Time to start bringing out the heavy tools for my large, dynamic sites.

    It seems that way but since it comes from Google, it should be worth spending some time on it :)

    This is a great idea to save goog money sending it's spiders out, should also decrease the google spider visits to only when content changes.

    Sitemaps are very important. I would take this very serious. I have passed it on to our coders right away :)

    Crap. I take it I'll need to be able to telnet into my server in order to run the python script. If so, I don't think I have telnet access.

    NVM my first post. I got it configured right and a site map was created based on my access logs. Very slick IMO and was easy to setup.

    Going to sleep now, but just wanted to tell everyone I wrote a script to generate a Google Sitemap for Wordpress sites. If anyone wants to take it and improve on it please do. Drop me an email if you do, I'd like a copy :)

    Grab it here:
    Wordpress script

    If you need an overview of the Sitemap protocol, you might want to read this.
