Google Sitemaps
Huge help once again from Improbulus, defining, exploring & explaining Google Sitemaps & what the service can do for you. There's 3 posts over there, one long for the tech wonks, one short for the quick-starters, & one verification clarification, that make the whole thing seem straightforward, sensible and worthwhile even without the verification part. The trick, it seems, is that a feed is also a valid sitemap, so we can skip that whole "build your map" malarkey (assuming that you have a valid & functioning feed) & go straight to submission, pinging, frequent re-indexing and world domination......

... well, submission and pinging, at least.....

Hi John, thanks for the mention and the links, glad you found my posts helpful.

Only thing I'd emphasise is that unfortunately a feed doesn't usually encompass the whole blog, so we're limited to only the posts that are in the feed being crawled, but as a way of pinging Google to get new posts crawled I think it's pretty useful.

And by the way, you ever figure out the world domination trick, just let me know! :D
