Google launches new service that may help bloggers

Google has launched a new service to may help bloggers get better coverage by the search giant.

The new service, Google Sitemaps, lets bloggers contribute to better crawl coverage by providing Google, based in Mountain View, Calif., with specific information about their web pages, such as when a page was last modified or how frequently a page changes and also includes a software tool, called a Sitemap Generator, which can create sitemaps from URL lists, web-server directories, or from access logs.

To quote Google:

“Google Sitemaps is an easy way for you to help improve your coverage in the Google index. It’s a collaborative crawling system that enables you to communicate directly with Google to keep us informed of all your web pages, and when you make changes to these pages.”

  • I recently submitted my blog feed to google sitemaps and it successfully downloaded my site within three hours. I’m still waiting for it to be index though. This new feature has really gotten me excited, but I wonder if it will really help my rankings. I think google sitemaps only helps to get your site spidered and indexed. Ranking will still depend on incoming links and keyword density I suppose.

  • Would a sitemap help with seo using a blog.I haved used google sitemap but i think that is just for initial index of the blog
