    Sitemap Question

    Right... I'm building a website with extended contents - non dynamic. This means I will have hundreds, eventually thousands of files, with a dozen beeing created every week or so.

    With this scenario, what' the poin - if there is any - to submit a Sitemap file to Google? I mean, the only initial files will be a dozen, the base files, which in time will provide links to contents, to individual files.

    You must submit the xml sitemap to google to index all the webpages of the site.

    Jakab... as I said, the website is in constant growing. Do you mean I shall create and run the xml sitemap in a weekly basis? That's quite a job.

    You can automate both the creation and the submission of the sitemap. For example a WP blog can be set to ping Google automatically with an updated sitemap when you make updates.

    If you only expect to have a few thousand URLs it will most likely only take minutes depending on your webserver speed. You can also automate sitemap generator to crawl website, create sitemap and upload sitemap e.g. once a week.
