    I'm thinking of giving it a shot. Sounds like it could be a good thing to do.

    try a search on this, a few good threads already started. BTW: you dont need shell access.

    If you dont want to go the code route you can always use crawlers like: http://www.sitemapspal.com/

    Or you can quite simply build it dynamically from your database or statically from your access logs.

    I'll be implementing a dynamic solution somewhere during the next few weeks. No rush.

    I created several and they all have been accepted. I hope that this will generate positive results and get a deeper crawl through some of the database generated content.

    me too i started 3 sitemaps

    1. for static files - the easiest one to maintain
    2. for dynamic files created from access_log offline - it used too much resources online the first time i ran it - hence the offline creation
    3. for the newest chapters - this sitemap is maintained manually

    - all accepted - all downloaded usually within an hours - and it seems that Google is re-downloading the sitemaps even without re-submission after 12 hours

    Well, Google can't find mine, some DNS resolving issue at their ISP. Everything fine from my end. Have to sit and wait a while...

    I've used http://www.sitemapxml.com/ for one of my sites. It's been an awesome experience so far. Had a bunch of dynamic PHP pages that weren't in the index that are now! More traffic, broader keyword appeal.
