What is a Sitemap File and Why Should I Have One?

A Sitemap is an XML file which contains a listing of all URLs within a website as well as the time the pages were last published. The file is used to inform and direct search engine crawlers so that web pages can be discovered and indexed quicker.

While a Sitemap does not change the method by which search engines that adhere to the sitemaps protocol (such as Google, MSN, and Yahoo!) search and index web pages, it does provide additional information that may not otherwise be discovered, such as pages that are not linked from any other page within your website. A sitemap provides an additional view into your site (just as your home page and HTML site map do).

Sitemaps are particularly helpful because your Toolkit website is dynamic and thus can be updated frequently using the Toolkit. This sitemap feature allows you to tell the search engines that your website content has changed

If your website is new and has few links to it then the sitemap feature allows you to inform the search engines about your new website more quickly than conventional search engine submission.
While sitemaps can make for speedier crawling and indexing of your pages, there are many other factors that influence the crawling/indexing processes. These other factors include:

* How many sites link to you
* Whether your content is unique and relevant
* Search engines ability to crawl the pages successfully

To submit create a Toolkit website search engine sitemap you will need to upgrade your package to include our sitemap bundle. The cost of the upgrade is just £3 per month, and allows you to verify your website with the two major search engines as well as submit your sitemap to these for quicker indexing.
By upgrading to the sitemap bundle you can also update your search engine sitemap as often as you like. In fact we recommend updating it whenever you have logged into the Toolkit and changed your websites content. This will ensure your website is always up to date with the search engines.

To upgrade your account simply login to the Tooklit and create a support ticket requesting the search engine sitemap upgrade. Your account will be updated within 24 hours ready for you to submit your new website sitemap.

To submit a sitemap you must have either a Google or Yahoo account or both.

You can sign up for an account with either search engine on their respective sitemap submission pages.
