Yahoo! Free Sitemaps: Submit Your Site

Aug 23, 2005 • 3:47 pm | comments (6) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under Yahoo Search Engine Optimization

At SES San Jose 05, during the Search Engine Q&A On Links session, Tim Mayer from Yahoo! announced a few things. One big announcement is Yahoo! Site Explorer which we are still waiting for...

The second thing was an announcement of a Google Sitemaps product for Yahoo! It doesn't have a name, and I am told it went live the Thursday at SES, but for some reason, I did not see anyone talk about it. Until now, when I saw SEO Scoop post an entry about it.

Go to You will see an additional line added that reads;

You can also provide the location of a text file containing a list of URLs, one URL per line, say urllist.txt. We also recognize compressed versions of the file, say urllist.gz.

So there you go, Sitemaps for Yahoo! Pay for Inclusion without the Pay, just no guarantees.

Oh what a headache! You knew Yahoo! would have to much pride and come up with their own version. Soon will be creating 4 or 5 sitemaps...there needs to be standard.

Does anybody know if there is a maximum size to this file or other restrictions? Google maxes out individual sitemap files at 10mb (although you can have many), and I'd hate to submit a large file to Yahoo only to have them give up on it very early because of an unstated limit.

Wait a minute Pay for Inclusion does give you any guarantees either. So another free tool to throw in my tool box. Thanks again.
