Google Sitemaps Made Easy

Google's own website describes sitemaps this way: The Sitemap Protocol allows you to inform search engines about URLs on your websites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap that uses the Sitemap Protocol is an XML file that lists URLs for a site. It also enables webmasters to include additional information about each URL (when it was last updated; how often it changes; how important it is in relation to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site.

The Sitemap must:
  • Begin with an opening <urlset> tag and end with a closing </urlset> tag.
  • Include a <url> entry for each URL as a parent XML tag.
  • Include a <loc> child entry for each <url> parent tag.

A sample Sitemap that contains just one URL and uses all optional tags is shown below. The optional tags are in italics.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="">    
< url >     
< loc ></loc>    
< lastmod >2005-01-01</lastmod>    
< changefreq >monthly</changefreq>   
< priority >0.8</priority>    

If this all seems to complicated, there are other options as well.
