Get Google`s Attention: How to Submit Your Sitemap - Who Should Submit?
(Page 2 of 4 )
It’s a good idea for all sites that want to be recognized by Google to submit their sitemap, but this process can be particularly useful for some. Who should submit their Web page information to Google? If your space on the Internet falls into any one of these categories, you should seriously consider submission:
Sites with a lot of archived content can benefit from this service, especially if that content isn’t well-linked within the site.
Sites that are frequently updated should be submitted to Google so that fresh changes are quickly recognized.
Sites that want to make sure they’re being recognized by Google should submit a sitemap, to be sure that even pages that might not traditionally be found through the search engine’s normal methods can be recognized and potentially visited by traffic on the Web.
Suppose your site just isn’t based on content. Does this leave you out of the submission loop entirely? While many search engines allow you to submit sitemaps for your text-rich pages, Google is one of the few search engines that supports other types of sitemaps as well.
Explore Google’s sitemap options to submit pages on sites that aren’t built around the common content you’ll find on the web.
Getting Google’s Attention
A note on submitting your sitemap: submitting doesn’t necessarily mean that Google will list your site, or even that you’ll get more traffic. Submitting a sitemap, however, does help gain recognition and ranking for pages that might not be discoverable through Google’s standard searching processes.
