    You can also use rss feeds as an additional sitemap if needed

    You can name it sitemap.xml like Tomastamm said, but you can give any other name for example: mywebsitelinks.xml / links.xml / etc.

    When you add it on google webmaster panel be sure to specify the right location for it and the right name.

    You can also add your sitemap on robots.txt file, for example add it on the first line:

    
    Sitemap: http://www.yourdomain.com/sitemap_index.xml
    
    Code (markup):
    Let me know if you need more info.

    we usually do not add sitemap urls in body or title tags. create the sitemap using the plugins (if it is a wordpress blog). by default it will be stored in your domains root directory.

    How will you put xml sitemap in the body?

    Create a xml sitemap file exclusively and put in the root directory.

    If you use GSiteCrawler it will automatically upload the crawls every day for you. Nice if you have a lot of content being updated constantly.

    Just create it with free XML site map generator websites and then upload it to root of your website.

    Steps involved :

    1. Create sitemap from www dot xml-sitemaps dot com/ (replace dot --> .)
    2. Download the Sitemap file (sitemap.xml)
    3. Place it inside the root i.e. inside /public_html folder
    4. Login to webmaster.google.com and submit the sitemap there.

    Hope this helps ! Please revert in case of any concerns.

    I also have the same question. I'd never used XML sitemaps. I only used HTML sitemap. which is more effective? why it's necessary to have XML sitemap on a website? thanks.

    Upload the sitemap at root level on your web server. Then submit it in Google, Yahoo and Bing webmaster tools.

    You can find XML sitemap tutorial list in this XML sitemap guide. It explains how to create, upload, submit and ping your XML sitemaps. (You don't need to references your XML sitemap in your website code!)

    you have to put it in the body.
    Put the sitemap.xml in your root directory (main directory) and then submit it in Google Webmaster Tools page. Generated sitemaps tend to consider / and index.html two different pages which is kind of stupid so delete the index.html. Also create a 301 permalink to your domain either www or http which can also be set in Google Webmaster tools. Then check your sites progress by adding Google Analytics to your pages.
