XML Sitemaps & Flash Headers


Recommended Posts

I was trying to create a xml sitemap using an online free program. I discovered once I create the sitemap that it only saw the links on the page it did not see any of the header tab links. Is there a way to get the programs to search the flash headers for links as well?

I don't believe so -- programs like that can't find links within flash files (and search engine spiders won't see those links either.) You'll probably need to add those manually.


...if that means you are using flash in your main navigation, I'd highly suggest that you don't, since search engine spiders in general don't understand flash and it will hurt your search engine rankings.

So if I am using a flash header I should create the header links separately Correct?


Correct -- just look at the XML file that was generated for you' date=' and add links following the same style.[/quote']


I created a sitemap.html manually. Is there a way I could create an xml sitemap from that? It would save a lot of time.
