    hi everyone,

    I was wondering how often everyone updates their sitemap. Also, is there a standard for how to make a sitemap? Thanks

    if you only have a small site, you only need your sitemap.htm. ;)

    i am a bit confused with this.

    I use the above program and it creates, as you know, the .txt, .htm & the .xml version of your sitemap/ I use the paid version and it pings the .xml version direct to Google.:confused:

    Is there any tools available for free which help us to generate sitemaps on every week?

    I need a free online tool which can index more than 1000 pages.

    It is possible to configure most scripts and programs.
    E.g. with Windows | System Tools | Planned Jobs (name translated from Danish)

    Everytime you add/delete your webpages you should update your sitemap.xml too. But if you just update your current webpages (i.e adding contents or articles), you should :
    - go to Google Webmaster Tools - sitemap page
    - login into your account
    - choose your sitemap of your website
    - check the box at the left of your sitemap name
    - and then click Resubmit Selected button. Your sitemap status become "pending".
    - then logout from Google sitemap page. After a few minutes the sitemap status wil become "OK".

    I often use this way everytime I update my webpages. My website will be indexed by Google faster than usual. You can prove it... :D

    Hope it helps,

    MES

    Have you been able to proove this one? I've been tinkering with the lastmod, changefreq options, and they haven't seemed to make a dag nabbed dad blasted bit of difference in how often Google comes to the site.

    In fact, as a test today, I took one of the pages I'm trying to get to show up, and updated it every hour, with the sitemap pushed to Google once per hour (which is the max, per their guidelines) and they didn't pull the file all day today. It's odd.
