Hosting Sitemap on a different domain

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by NewComputer, Sep 7, 2005.

    Can you have a Google sitemap for a website (www.domain1.com) be hosted on a separate domain (www.domain2.com/sitemap)?

    I don't have FTP access for the site but I am trying to setup a sitemap for it.

    The very definition of a sitemap indicates that it is on the same site... wouldn't you think? Otherwise, it would just be a link page.

    Google won't accept a sitemap that is on a different server.

    Yeah, after reading up on it, the Google Sitemap needs to be on the same site.

    You could put a normal site map page up on the second domain, but it will only be seen as a page of links, and not give the full benefit that a true Google Sitemap xml feed would.

    http://www.searchenginepromotionhelp.com/ has a good site map creator to make things easier...
