Sitemaps

    Who uses them? Who doesn’t?

    If so, do you manually create them, or use a sitemap generator?
    If using a generator, any suggestions on a good one?

    i use them, I usually create them from scratch.

    but I just finished a wordpress theme and I’m very interested in using their plug in

    is it as simple as plugin it in or do I have to to google and submit it like any other sitemap?

    I’ve never used them, because most of the time my websites aren’t that complex. Just a couple of pages and then it’s not necessary I think.

    Are you talking about a sitemap in XML format that you provide so search bots can find every nook and crany of your site? I do support the use of those. If Google provides documentation on using and creating them, I’m sure its for a good reason and they should be used when possible. Especially on pages with lots and lots of content. For the blog portion of this site, I use a WordPress plugin that does it automatically for me, which is awesome.

    And then there are traditional site maps which are just pages on a site that list every page on the site for saavy or curious visitors to drill down right where they need to get quickly. This is tricky territory, as a page with that many links on it can look awfully intimidating and be counter-productive.

    Check out this pretty slick looking CSS sitemap:

    Yeah, I was refering to the use of XML sitemaps.

    I agree, sitemaps for view on a website can often times looks intimidating, especially when it contains no design and just a bunch of small sized, blue underlined text!

    I checked out a few programs that automate it, so I’ll stick with those… just some good ole SEO i guess!
