Google Sitemap Submission More Easier Now

Submitting a Sitemap to Google just became even more easier now.

Now, there is no need to mention the file type (XML, Text, RSS) of the Sitemap, Google will automatically determine the type of data.

Here are the various kinds of Sitemap files that Google supports at the moment mentioned in the Google official blog:
  • XML Sitemap files for web pages
  • RSS 2.0 and Atom 1.0 feeds
  • Text files with web page URLs
  • XML Sitemap files for Video Search
  • Media-RSS feeds
  • XML Sitemap files for Google Code Search
  • XML Sitemap files for mobile web pages
  • XML Sitemap files for geo-data
  • XML Sitemap files for News
Google supports three simple ways to submit Sitemap files:
  1. Through Google Webmaster Tools
  2. Listing Sitemap files in the robots.txt file
  3. Using an HTTP "ping"
So, no more hard work on Sitemap files. Just create and submit it.
