    DySE:view.pl feature request - Google SiteMap Support
    Could you consider adding a 'page' of 'sitemap.xml' which creates a google Site Map of the DySE site links?

    It'ld be a bonus feature which could really make the DySE scripts even better. The user can then just go to Google, visit the Site Map site, and submit their sitemap to Google for indexing in one step, and the Site Map would stay up-to-date with the changes in the merchant data feeds.

    DySE view.pl has always had a sitemap feature. Just go to your store home page and add sitemap to the end of the URL.

    For example, YourDomain.com/sitemap/

    The file cgi-bin/dyse/MERCHANT/templates/sitemap.html is used for this page.

    FYI, another special URL is YourDomain.com/version/

    Google site maps are different than the sitemap template ;-)

    Basically it's an XML file which Google is beta testing as a way for web site owners to completely submit their sites to Google at one time; and notify it of new pages automatically (if they include the new pages in the Site Map file - with DySE sites, new files could be submitted as soon as the products appeared in the data feed, and the webmaster runs the make.pl file). They've typically been downloading the Site Maps for some of the domains a couple of times a day.

    http://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/ has more information on their site maps feature...

    David, site maps in the Google sense need to have a list of urls formatted in a specific way, and have no html in the file. Even a straight text list of urls of the site works fine. I am not using the xml maps, but text versions and they are being picked up nicely.

    When I initially read the request, I zipped right past the word "Google" and was thinking of the current /sitemap feature. DySE view.pl support of Google xml/text sitemaps is in development.

    DySE view.pl v5.07.13 supports Google Sitemaps. See instructions.

    Yes Jack, follow the instructions in the Dyse google section and all will be well. RTFM. It's very clear there.
