Right now the small web developer I work p/t for, gets his clients to complete an Excel document to organize how they want to organize their website, etc. They layout a terrible looking sitemap, then add a worksheet for each page of the site they want to build stating desired keywords, titles, etc. Within each worksheet they then embed a Word doc with the desired text.

There has to be a better way to do layout a workable sitemap and transfer info back and forth between the client and the developer.

Thanks for your assistance in advance.

Word files full of text, Excel for keywords and metas and titles... actually that sounds like a pretty typical prep

I used to ask for the sitemap as XML, because I knew my client could do it, otherwise I was content with a txt file using indentation to show levels of hierarchy

But I wouldn't create a separate worksheet for each page of the site. Is that necessary? I guess it depends how complex the data is & how many fields you use
