Gary Illyes from Google said that XML Sitemap files do not directly impact your rankings in Google Search. This is not new news but I like how he said "No, not direct anyway" to answer the question.Here are those tweets where the question asked was "Gary, is there a problem/ranking disadvantage not using a sitemap.xml at all?" We know Google said removing XML Sitemaps doesn't hurt a site and changing the XML Sitemaps location also shouldn't hurt one's rankings. So not having a sitemap file also won't hurt.XML Sitemaps help Google discover the URLs on your web site. Google ranks those URLs but the XML Sitemap file is about Google discovering those URLs, not directly ranking those URLs. Crawling, indexing and ranking are different things.Forum discussion at Twitter. … [Read more...] about Google: Sitemaps Do Not Directly Impact Your Search Rankings

The major search engines have announced an update to the sitemaps.org protocol which enables site owners to store their XML Sitemap files in any location — even on a different domain than the one referenced in the Sitemap. This will be a welcome change for those who manage multiple domains and would like to keep all Sitemap files in one place, as well as for those who would like to store their Sitemap in a location other than the root. The only caveat? You have to be able to edit the robots.txt file of the domain the Sitemap file references. The search engines made the announcement today on the Search Engineers Q&A panel at SMX West. Below, more about how this works and how to implement it on your site.

Even with the continuing improvements in organic search for discovering your content, it still takes time for search to find it all. It takes patience on your part, and in many cases, the content found in a crawl has inadequate context to the needed, relevant keywords that make it discoverable to searchers. Wouldn’t it be cool if a webmaster could just identify a list of content pages you wanted the search engines to crawl, telling them “these are the most important content pages on my site,” and in some cases, even offering a little bit of keyword context to it? Well, great … [Read more...] about A Primer On How To Get The Most Out Of Sitemaps
