Here is a older site map that I don't update as often as I should. The value of a site map on that particular domain (isp) is not what it used to be.

This subject falls into the "when I have lots of time to kill"! I'd love to have one but with over 300 pages.. Well you know the picture. What my question is does anyone know of any easy way to do this? Maybe a program to spider my site and give me a page of links with titles which I could Gussie up a little? Then I could maintain it well enough.
Two years ago, I would have been making one when I had ten pages and adding and maintaining as I added but now I don't think so.

Off the top of my head I can't remember any particular program, but there are several out there that will do exactly as you want. One cheap way is to actually get a site search engine and do it yourself (like that Fluid Dynamics site search engine).

Thanks for the example. I assume a sitemap is just a tool, similar to a hallway page, to get the search engines to efficiently index your site? You mentioned in one of your articles that you were experimenting with a sitemap for Excite. Have you had any progress with this? Are site maps acceptable to all search engines, especially Alta Vista, and will they be labeled as spam?
Getting back to excite, since the last index my homepage has been getting some good rankings including a few No#1 positions. Maybe Buddylinks is playing a part in this. I have had over 250 doorways indexed at excite for the past 7 months with very little traffic.Who knows, maybe next index doorways will be the darlings of excite and go to the top of the listings. One final question, how often should I submit the site map to the engines, would every 4 to 6 weeks be to much? Thanks.

When I have completed my sitemap and am about to submit it to all the search engines, should I put a link on my homepage to my sitemap, or do I need links on each page to the sitemap or any links at all? Thanks, hopefully this will help with excite and infoseek.

Would this sitemap be ok? I dont want to set of any spam alarms especially with Alta Vista. [ecommerce-packages.com...] Should I put links on the other pages to this sitemap or just submit it by itself? Thanks.

That sure looks ok to me. Nice looking pages. Is that a template or your own work? (it looks familar for some reason).
