Google Sitemaps

Google Sitemaps is a new experiment by Google. Web site owners can place an xml-formatted sitemap on their webserver and notify Google.

By placing a Sitemap-formatted file on your webserver, you enable our crawlers to find out what pages are present and which have recently changed, and to crawl your site accordingly.

My Sitemaps page will show information about downloading and processing of your sitemap by Google.

Google also offer Sitemap Generator, an open source client in Python to create sitemaps. Sitemap Generator can create sitemaps from URL lists, webserver directories, or from access logs and notify Google.
