    Hi,
    I created my google sitemap yesterday and being a newbe at this Iam finding it a bit confusing, Is there a way of my site map automatically updating or do i have to manually change it and resubmit it to google as i do a lot of updates and add new pages frequently. Also might seem strange but do I put a hyperlink on my site for my google sitemap, to me it seems a bit weird, if i was going to someones site and I had never heard of a sitemap before and clicked the hyper link and saw the coding <priority>0.5</priority>
    <lastmod>2005-12-28T20:43:21+00:00</lastmod>
    <changefreq>daily</changefreq>
    </url> I would think there was an error with the site. "just a thought".
    Thank You.

    You don't need to link to the sitemap, just submit it to google and they will do the rest.

    You can generate your sitemap automatically but the best way to do this depends on how your site is set up, is it using a database? how many pages do you have and how often do you add more?

    If you add 10 pages a week its probably easier to add the new pages manually.

    Although I am sure there are tools to do it for you.
