Chandigarh, Punjab India (PressExposure) August 11, 2008 -- Did you know you can list for Free in Google with Wordpress? Not too long ago, Google came up with a new concept called "Google Sitemaps".

One of the main objectives of Google Sitemaps is to help update Google's search engine of any changes or updates to your site.
It was a smart idea on Google's side, as the Internet was simply growing too big and too fast. The amount of sites that the search engine bots or commonly referred to as 'spiderbots' or 'spiders' had to visit was enormous.
With Google Sitemaps, Google came up with a win-win solution for both parties. The need for the search engine giant to update their database with the latest search results, and an opportunity for site owners to get indexed with Google.
With Google Sitemaps, you can generate an 'xml' file of your entire site, and submit it to Google using your Google Account.
Once Google has received your Sitemap file, it will be able to keep track of changes to your site. It's actually a win-win for both parties.
Of course, for most people, they wouldn't understand this entire technical lingo, let alone create an 'xml' file.
