Those who use Google webmaster tools will know how important an updated site map is for crawling purposes. There are several sites out there that will give you free online sitemap generation but limit this to 500 pages or less. This limit shouldn’t be a problem for most end users but when you start crawling photos pages made using JAlbum and you can easily have 1,000’s of html pages to add to the sitemap.I found a java based free online sitemap generator that has absolutely no limits, it’s fast, configurable and easy to use so I’m book marking it here for me to find it again in the future:
XML Sitemap Tool for Google Yahoo MSN
WARNING – I’ve found that trying to use the tool in the link above from an Apple running OS X 10.5 crashes both Firefox and Sarafi. I’m not sure why but once it starts to load the java app everything just hangs. Works fine on Internet Explorer 6 and 7 under XP.
