New Google sitemap functionality
June 4, 2005 Comments Off on New Google sitemap functionality
create_sitemap.php.gz is some code that I have written to add to your serendipity blog.
It is very simple, unpack it in your blog directory. Via the web you go to http://your.blog.net/create_sitemap.php and a file called Sitemap.gz will be created.
Google sitemaps should become a new protocol for webcrawlers sniffing around your site 😉
The initiative seems to be coming from Google itself, but it’s worthwile having a Sitemap even if only they start using it…
I might code a bit further in order to have a plugin for Serendipity which updates the Sitemap at the very moment an entry is created. But there seem to be some problems with the Serendipity website, so I haven’t found all documentation on how to write plugins.
For the time being we’ll have to do with this mediocre workaround…
