    The power of Google Sitemaps

    I have been working on a site for a while - a domain that was acquired about 4 months ago that I later discovered was second hand and that had expired a few months before that.

    Anyway the little Google spider would not visit, even though other domains with holding pages launched the same time (and after) were spidered within days.

    I had feared that there was a ban in place because of the previous site content and was about to submit to Google to 'un ban' it.

    Anyway, as a last resort, I added and submitted a google sitemap and within 24 hours, along comes Mr spider and the grey toolbar turns white.

    Now all I need is a no 1 ranking

    Anyway, it seems that the sitemap can help get a new site spidered

    Google sitemaps are free and useful to spiders new site. It is an easy way to index all URL of the site. I think you should visit this link, it will help you a lot.

    Martin I think you missed the point of his thread. Blue Cat I just setup a sitemap for one of my sites as well and am tinkering with it.
