Sitemaps, day 2
Thursday, April 12, 2007 by Dave Winer.
I now have my sitemaps implemented for scripting.com.
There's a sitemapindex file, that points to all the sitemaps.
I've added the auto-discovery link in robots.txt.
I followed the instructions for pinging the search engines, I tried Yahoo, Google, Ask and Microsoft; and none of them acknowledged that they accepted the ping, in fact they all returned cryptic error pages. Not a good omen!
