One of the lesser known features the search engines (SE) offer is webmaster tools for Google, MSN and Yahoo. Webmaster tools provide you with statistics, diagnostics and management of the SE indexing of your website, including sitemap submission and reporting.
Webmasters can use the Sitemaps Submission feature to almost instantly place newly created pages on their site into the search index. This is a XML file that is uploaded to the SE webmaster tools as the new pages are added on your site. This can be a valuable service for any webmaster or marketer who wants to get their information on the web quickly.
By using webmaster tools, you can learn more details available only to site owners, such as:
errors the search bot encountered while crawling your site and top search queries that return your site in the search results pages.
You can find sitemap generators by searching “create xml sitemap”.
If you or your webmaster don’t know about these tools, contact a search engine optimization expert and ensure your website has the best possible exposure so you can see the highest search rankings for your website.
