Sitemaps - do they work and how long does it take to get indexed?
I have made sitemaps, used software to make sitemaps, submitted them to the big G etc.
I have bought Products that say submitting a sitemap can get your site indexed within a few hours but I have NEVER had that experience.
In fact, I set up a new wordpress site a few days ago and filled it with content - really good stuff - and then submitted a sitemap. (I also did several other SEO things...not JUST a sitemap)
That was on Monday.
Although the sitemap has been read and DLed by Google every day, I don't have a single URL indexed.
At the same time, I am already coming up #2 on Yahoo.
So - I guess my question is - has anyone gotten the so-called "within hours" results when submitting a sitemap to G?
