    Google sitemap changes
    I logged in to Google sitemaps for the first time in a long time this morning and they have changed it quite a bit!

    More information on crawl statistics, top search queries, pagerank distribution, etc...

    Thanks for the link, Neil!

    Very interesting information - this would seem to indicate a change of attitude on Google's part toward Webmasters. It appears they may be truly interested in helping Webmasters get better rankings, and understand issues with their site(s). I guess they have finally realized that there are a lot of honest sites out there that don't pull any tricks, but somehow get penalized in Google's attempts to rid its index of spam, duplicates, etc.

    I guess this could also benefit the scum sites as well, but there might be something else behind giving Webmasters access to this data...

    Until now I thought you had to link that XML sitemap from your site pages and thats why I was hesitant in creating one. But just checked and found that its not required for the XML sitemap to be linked from anywhere.

    Thanks Neil! That was a good read.

    I haven't exactly been thrilled with Google during the past year, but I'm hoping they will get all the bugs worked out quickly. I had a site buried last December, and it started recovering again in July. It still isn't back where it was, but I'm trying to maintain a positive attitude that it will!
