Admin have you heard of this

Dear Site Member

Did you know as of April 11th there was no longer a need to manually submit your sitemap to search engines. Last fall, the major search engines agreed on a sitemaps format. You can now add a simple line to your robots.txt file and let the engines know where your sitemap document resides on your site.

Just include the following line in your robots.txt file and you should be all set:

Robots.txt has traditionally been used in a more prohibitive fashion - by telling search engine spiders where not to go on your site. This latest sitemaps implementation of robots.txt however is telling the spiders where TO go.

Sitemaps are important and in the long run will help improve your website visibility in search results.

It is not exactly new news, the search engines that matter have never needed submitting to anyway as they were by spidering, and the sitemap has never been very relevant to a forum that has already been optimised.

We could allow sitemap editing, but it would create a lot of work for people which they would struggle to understand, and all for very little benefit. Forum Index -> Search Engines
