    Submitting URLs to Search Engines - Submitting a Sitemap

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Still not getting recognized by Google or any other major search engine? You want to consider submitting a sitemap. This tells the search engines the URL for every single one of your Web pages, and essentially tells them to index all of these URLs. Doing this might help your site come to the attention of the traffic-driving engines you want to court. Just having a sitemap will make your pages easier for the search engines to index, whether or not you submit this file directly to them.


    Want to see results quickly, and become a part of the search engines within a day or two? Youíll need to submit your sitemap directly to Google, an act which can be completed through Googleís Webmaster Tools. Anyone with a Google, Blogger or Gmail account already has access to Webmaster Tools. If you donít already have a Google account, itís free to sign up for one.

    To submit the sitemap, simply provide the URL -- the location of this file on your site. After completing this, youíll be able to access the sitemap through Google Webmaster tools, to find out quickly if the procedure worked to get you indexed.

    Creating a sitemap can actually be more difficult than submitting it to Google. If youíve never done this before, you may want to use a program to create the file for you. Sites like XML Sitemaps make it incredibly easy to do so.


    Once youíve created the sitemap, simply upload it to your site through your file manager. After these tasks are completed, submit the file to Google so all of your pages can be indexed -- and therefore, accessible through the search engines. Youíll find that once a single search engine starts to index your site, all of them follow suit.
