    Google Text-File Site Maps?
    Anybody using a simple text file as a google site map? This seems like a very simple way to do this.
    Go to https://www.google.com/webmasters/si...html#text_file
    for info.

    I like that Cheesehead> This is probably a stupid question but should the urls be with hyperlinks or not?

    Cool
    straight line by line, full urls. works for me until I figure out how to do it the hard way.



    then go back again and pick up the filename of the blank file they want you to put in the root of each site. once they see that they can tell you if they are having any problems with your page data.

    Don't know if you are aware of this site (http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/) but it sure makes it easy to create a Google sitemap, and it's free to use.

    Here is what google gives as an example:

    Problem it that it only allows up to 500 pages.

    I use txt files for submission to G, and I make them with Xenu's Link Sleuth (free). You can get it here: http://home.snafu.de/tilman/xenulink.html It's as easy as copy/paste - even I can do that...
    It's meant to find broken links, but it works great to make a txt site map, too.

    Cheers, Frank

    Ditto, best tool I've found... works great with dynamic sites too... can be a little demanding on your server though
