Best xml sitemap builder?

by Roaddog 4 replies
Good day to all
or night, depending.

I was just wondering if anybody has preferences for a sitemap builder, (for websites not WP)
that's acceptable to Google.
Before I go trying everything in sight I thought I might ask the more experienced.
Hopefully an easy to use one, as I haven't bothered to submit any before.
Thought it might be a good time to try it.

Thanks

Peace

Jim

    Hi, here is a free one which is pretty good
    Google Sitemap Generator for Windows :: GSiteCrawler
    BUT - beware, there are many people who have experienced a drop in ranking after submitting a sitemap to Google (not depending on which sitemap builder you are using).
    I personally just build a a sitemap on my site and don't submit anymore to Google. My experience is that the less G. knows - the better (thats why I don't use Google webmaster Tools, G. Analytics etc).
    Just my 2 cents.

      Thanks sveisko, why do you think that you would get a drop in ranking, although I have heard that before?

      And that's a good point about the big G. That ran thru my head a few years ago, about why would I report on myself...

      But you want google to come and index your site as fast as possible, maybe I am not keeping with the times, but that used to be seo 101.

      Thanks for the link

        Here's the best one. It's a desktop app and is open source...in other words...Free.

        SourceForge.net: RSS Builder


        EDIT:
        Crap...I just noticed that you wanted a sitemap creator...Opps! I'll look that one up.

        Here you go, the sitemap one:

        Hi, yeah, I don't know why this can happen, but I've heard a lot about it. Maybe if there are some factors on your site which is in the grey area... Why rock the boat!?
        There are lots of things you can do to get Google to index your site fast (faster than by submitting a sitemap).
        Social bookmarking by using SocialMarker.com
        Clipmarks
        Twitter
        etc, these links get picked up within hours.
