In people's experience, how long has it taken for your sitemaps to be crawled by Google? Thanks.
Once added to google sitemaps its normallyu crawled for me within 24 hours however might not appear in search engines for upto a week later
Hi, Your on site SEO have to be really good and effective with fresh content over website can help a site map for quick indexing at Google.
Thanks for replies. Have now uploaded sitemaps to both Google and Yahoo. Will be interesting to see which ones get spidered first.
Downloaded some brilliant software for generating sitemaps for Mac - iGooMap - if you need sitemaps, and use a Mac, then brilliant!
Phil - why can't you just automate them? Surely you don't want to manually create sitemaps for every site you own. Just stick a 'lastmod' field in DB and update it when your CMS is used to update pages (if you want to use the lastmod field in sitemaps that is)
Manual seems the hard way of doing it IMO
If added in webmaster tool, normally it takes 24 hrs to be crawled by the crawlers.
That guy has been posting nonsense answers ever since he registered on acorn. I would definitely bet that he is posting here for his sig links.
Ah yes thats it, I couldn't work out why he was just posting or the sake of it, he may think the same about my posts though
