XML Site Mapping
XML sitemaps (also called search engine sitemaps) tell search engines like Google what pages are on your site, and how often they change. These sitemaps are machine-readable, but are not designed to be read by humans. Here's an example:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"> <url> <loc>http://www.powermapper.com/index.htm</loc> <changefreq>weekly</changefreq> </url> <url> <loc>http://www.powermapper.com/company/contact.htm</loc> <changefreq>yearly</changefreq> </url> </urlset>
