Our CMS is now even more Search Engine friendly as we recently have installed an xml map facility which Google looks for when ranking websites. This works automatically in the background so all you have to do is concentrate on dealing with the additional traffic to your site! Read more directly below.
- Search Engine News - A quest to improve Google ranking and traffic via sitemap!
The xml sitemap feature, is a new service being offered by Google to help sites get indexed quicker. By creating a sitemap for google and submitting it directly into their own admin system, Google indexes and crawls the subsequent pages easier and quicker.
We have responded to this by adding this facility to all sites driven by our CMS. This means that we have more control over what we'd like Google to index and the speed at which it's done. Better still it works automatically and it is a FREE enhancement.
This is also helpful if the site is new and so has few links to it, if it has dynamic content or some pages that aren't too easy to find. This facility is still in Beta, but is certainly a recommended procedure to getting your site ranked in the most important search engine. We will be monitoring results closely.
