Hi

Is there a facility to add a sitemap to Live Search to try and improve our rankings in Live Search?

I've searched around but cannot find anything.

Apart from the odd one-word referral (?!) we only get one or two 'decent' referrals from Live whereas with Google our results are pretty good.

Thanks

Mick

Sure, Live uses the sitemap protocol. They make it impossible to link to the exact page, but scroll down the ToC in the webmaster help faq [help.live.com].

Thanks jimbeetle

Through that link I found the webmaster login for Live. Unfortunately (for me!) I'm in Thailand and all the text on the screen is in Thai with no option to change to English.

I can read some Thai but to have to go through registration in Thai is probably beyond me!

Hmmmm...not so clever Microsoft

EDIT: Ok, I managed to find a way in that's in English
