Question: I am currently taking your webinar series on SEO (Olson Silver Company/Rodney Olson). I took your free tutorial first. I had a few questions regarding xml site maps that I was hoping you could help me with. We had someone set up our site for us but they didn’t put all the pieces in place for proper SEO so now I am bumbling my way through it. They used word press with the theme sand box to set it up.
Thank you so much for all your help I am finding the webinar to be very useful and I am so glad I found out about it!
So, first, create the clickable path from the home page to each and every page of the website, usually through an HTML sitemap… Then, use the free XML sitemap and upload to your site as I teach in class. Finally, tell Google about it through the robots.txt file and in Webmaster tools. You can check out mine at http://www.jasonmcdonald.org/robots.txt – it shows you the location of the XML sitemap.
