Creating and Submitting a Google Sitemap

Creating a Google sitemap can be easy and beneficial. By using one, you are pushing a full list of all your links on your website instead of waiting for Google to pull and discover them through time. By submitting a Google sitemap to their service you help increase your site's visibility.

There are several websites that provide free generation of a sitemap. One site we have tested and works great is:
XML Sitemaps

If you need to index more than 500 pages and/or prefer a Windows program to create the sitemap file check out:
GSiteCrawler

Once you have a sitemap.xml file created, visit the Google Sitemaps area of Google's webmaster tool area.
