    I am hoping that I will get my new site indexed too. I used the script on phpbb.com about 3 days ago. About 100 of 20000 pages have been indexed. Hopefully, more will be added soon.

    Sorry for being a little off topic, but when you say you generate hundreds of pages a month, do you mean your site is dynamic but it creates static URL's for the SE's? i've been trying to find information on doing this for my site - anyone have any info on doing this?

    In general, no. Most content generated is either html or shtml pages. There are ways of doing this, basically, I think, by mod_rewriting dynamic URLs. My ScriptsGold subdomain generates dynamic URLs, but I had the script modified to make them static.

    Thought about starting a new thread on this but decided not to.

    Are people seeing new sites getting indexed quicker when using the sitemap - or is it still somply a case of pointing enough links into the site to get it indexed ?

    I have a fairly new site that had been indexed by Google. I decided to change the page titles to most of the pages and thought that this would be a good time to try out the new sitemap feature in Google.

    I submitted the sitemap and it was uploaded and accepted more that a week ago now.

    Google has yet to update to reflect ANY of the new page titles. So apparently, Google has not bothered to spider the site even once as a result of the submission.

    So far, I am NOT impressed!

    I am not impressed either. I've submitted a sitemap more than a week ago and Google has yet to clean up it's index with my site. For some reason it still has pages indexed that were removed weeks ago. It is just one big mess right now.

    For what it's worth, I've 159,000 pages indexed on one domain since adding my sitemap. The domain is two years old and has a PR5 domain, however.

    Sounds to me like the sitemap tool won't help new sites and Google is still applying a sandbox of sorts.

    I wonder how much it will really help. Has anyone sent them a txt file version?

    I sent in a text file, just a list of urls separated by newlines. It seems to have worked pretty well, but google was already starting to crawl heavily, so it's not like it went from 0 to 1000 a day. But I think it helps. So does putting random deep links on the front page, that's what seemed to really spur google into action.

    Actually, no, we can't. You need a certain number of posts before your signature shows up here.

    But even if it were there, most people probably wouldn't bother clicking. If you have an opinion or comment, spill a bit here... then if people are at all intrigued, they might go to your site to read the rest of the "article" or whatever it is. As it stands now, my guess is most people will read your post as an attempt to leech traffic to your site, and just move on to the next post.

    From our own observations; It looks like as the workload of sitemap.xml files builds up, the indexing rate is slowing down. As more people submit sitemaps, the time dedicated to indexing your site is decreasing.

    Anyone else noticing that revisits are taking longer?
    Our record is 19,000 pages in 4 days. That was for a file submitted 5 days ago.

    Yup, I concur... Which is to be expected. My first site was crawled and indexed within the hour (and those were brand new domains) and the last one I submitted was 6 days ago and looks like G was here today...

    So you guys are implying they had dedicated spiders/crawlers available for this.

    I doubt that's the case. They just get added to the same URL queue and spidered by the same bots (is my guess - would make most sense from efficiency point of view).

    I added 4 text files.

    One of my sites has gad G all over it more importantly G had not touched any of my database pages until submitting this file! Now have over 400 pages up from 20 - 50.

    One site still in the sandbox!

    One site indexed all forum pages and then 2 days later say's P*ss *ff and now none of the forum pages are done!

    Last site happy with slightly better cralwing
