    The ROR format covers WAY more than just sitemaps... I talk it up on my ROR Sitemap page, but in short it is an XML variant, like RSS, that allows you to list URLs (sitemap), products (ROR product feed), Articles (ROR article feed), company bio's, events calendars, and anything else you may want to pass along to the world.

    The "FULL" ROR format allows for a central file (ror.xml) to point to other ROR files (sitemap, product feed, article feed,....). If you only have one ROR file (sitemap), you can simply use ror.xml to list your URLs.

    Search engines are supposed to look for this file using a particular name in a particular location like robots.txt or favicon.ico or urllist.txt always have the same name in the same place on your server.

    Check this sitemaps comparison article. It has explanations and code examples of many sitemap file kinds including ROR sitemaps (which basicly just extends RSS feeds)

    ROR is nothing but Resources of Resources, it is the one of the format of sitemap, sitemap is totally available in four formats, in all these the files which has extension like .xml those are search engine friendly.

    Why use the ROR format when it was never supported any major search engine...? All the extra information provided by ROR is not read. Please find *any* official search engine documentation stating support for .ror :) For more info, refer to the sitemaps comparison article linked earlier in thread.
