What is Web Directory?


“A web directory or link directory is a directory on the World Wide Web. It specializes in linking to other web sites and categorizing those links.A web directory is not a search engine and does not display lists of web pages based on keywords; instead, it lists web sites by category and subcategory. Most web directory entries are also not found by web crawlers but by humans. The categorization is usually based on the whole web site rather than one page or a set of keywords, and sites are often limited to inclusion in only a few categories. Web directories often allow site owners to submit their site for inclusion, and have editors review submissions for fitness.RSS directories are similar to web directories, but contain collections of RSS feeds, instead of links to web sites.” - wikipedia.org

My friend Garry sent me an email, his email below.

Hi Croco,

Do you know the method to create a sitemap to blogspot blog?
Please help me.
I will use that in google webmaster.

Thanks,
Garry


and below is my answer,



Hi Garry,


Regarding to your problem, you can use the atom.xml feed and submit it to Google's sitemap.


Example: http://crocowebnotes.blogspot.com/atom.xml


The use of sitemap according to Google.com
"Sitemaps are a way to tell Google about pages on your site we might not otherwise discover. In its simplest terms, a XML Sitemap—usually called Sitemap, with a capital S—is a list of the pages on your website. Creating and submitting a Sitemap helps make sure that Google knows about all the pages on your site, including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google's normal crawling process."


Cheers,
Croco
