Google Sitemap generator
If you have a website and want it to be fully submitted to google, have a look at Google Sitemaps.
(for Windows 95,98,2000,XP and Server 2003)
This Windows commanmd line utility reads in a list of web pages from a text file and generates an xml file compatible with Google Sitemaps. It can be run from the command line or a batch file.
Just one, the name and location of the file containing the list of web pages that are to be submitted to Google Sitemaps.
1. Unzip and Copy list2ms.exe into any folder.
Using a text editor such as notepad, create a file holding the list of file urls for your website. If you have three files a.html, b.html and c.php for the website fred.com then the list would look like this. A sample named list.txt is included in the zip file.
http://www.fred.com/a.html http://www.fred.com/b.html http://www.fred.com/c.php
You can add up to two parameters on each line separated by commas. One specifies the update frequency and is a single word from this list. Never, Always, hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, yearly. These are defined in Google Sitemaps
http://www.fred.com/a.html,yearly http://www.fred.com/b.html http://www.fred.com/c.php,daily
The default is weekly but once a value has been specified it applies to any files listed after it. So b.html would have a yearly update frequency.
2. The 2nd parameter specifies the priority and is a value ranging from 0.0 to 1.0. The default is 0.5 and this parameter is also sticky. Once changed it applies to all subsequent files.
http://www.fred.com/a.html,0.2,monthly http://www.fred.com/b.html http://www.fred.com/c.php,weekly,0.9
a.html has a priority of 0.2 and monthly update. b.html is the same as a.html
c.php has a priority of 0.9 and weekly update. The order of the two parameters is not important.
3. Run List2SM. E.g. list2sm fred.csv
