    I don't like giving Google all my information. But since my tourist site did a drop after using a new, very different theme I broke down and just submitted a sitemap to them.

    I figured maybe the new theme is somehow hiding some pages and the map will help. Has anyone seen in improvement in thier site after submitting a sitemap?

    I STILL don't like giving them all my info, but they seem to have it anyway. hmm

      I doubt it will help - unless you have really disconnected pages that are not linked to from any other page of your site. Sitemaps are for help with most complete indexing, not ranking. smile

    Sign up to google webmaster tools www.google.com/webmasters/tools/. Here you will find lots of information about your webistes including search trends, keywords that result your website, which sites are linking to your website. These things are necessary for Search Engine Optimization.

    Remember that information could take about 1 month or more to appear on webmaster tools.

      Webmaster tools are not necessary for SEO, although they do help.

      You can only use Webmaster Tools on your own sites, not revenue share sites like Hubpages, and yet hubbers still use SEO.

    Yeah I use webmaster tools on my own sites. They don't seem very accurate. hmm
