Have you ever been annoyed by search engines : you have added many new pages onto your site, but after half a month, those pages still have not been indexed; you’ve made lots of changes to optimize your content pages, but none of them appear differently from days ago when you search them on search engines .

Why not search engines do their work more efficiently? You may want to ask. But if you are put in their shoes, you probably can understand them: every day there are millions of new sites come into being and billions of updates are made to those web pages, how it possibly for search engines bots to timely crawl them all at the time they come out?

Then, is there any solution to such a problem? Actually, not only webmasters, search engines themselves also endeavor to fix this problem. In 2005, Google launched sitemap protocol to encourage webmasters to submit sitemap to them. A site map for a website can help search engine crawlers to quickly discover all the pages of a site, and index the updated contents timely.

Then, what is site map and how to create sitemap?

A site map is usually a list of pages on your site, together with additional information about each URL. It acts as a guide for search engines crawlers to find all the pages and an informer to immediately notify search engines about updates.

In regard to the process of sitemap creating, you can choose between two ways: manually creating one or using sitemap tool to generate sitemap.

Manual way: first you should know what a standard sitemap looks like, and follow the sitemap template to create your sitemap with plain-text editor or Dream Weaver (using XML tags to add URLs and the metadata about each URL); make sure that it is no larger than the limitation imposed by Sitemap protocol (50,000 URLs, 10 MB), otherwise you need to break it into smaller sitemap files and group them by using Sitemap index file; after the creation, you should upload the sitemap to your server (and if it is an XML sitemap, you have to validate it according to the XML schema in advance) and ping search engines of this sitemap. And there is more–every time you make changes on your site, you have to start this whole process once again.

Easy way? Get a sitemap generator! It can generate standard sitemaps
