    Could be a silly question, but from what I understand our subdomain is seen independently by itself, so can we submit a site map to webmaster (google)?

    Thanks

    Someone mentions that in another forum thread pertaining to traffic. Seems like you can under analytics. If I find it, I will repost the link.

    Hubpages generates a sitemap for your subdomain if you have more than 10 approved hubs or 10 approved questions.

    Yes. There are two Sitemap elements on HubPages.
    One you have access to, the other you do not.

    As livewithrichard mentioned, your  nightnight.xml.gz  is automatically submitted.
    http://nightnight.hubpages.com/hubs/latest?rss  is an xml display page that acts as an RSS channel which can be submitted to Google, as a sitemap. Else you could create a sitemap of links and submit the text file to Google. This cannot be used for Bing | SAGA submission. You will need to submit each link, as a URL, to Bing.

      Thats really useful. Thanks for the detailed response makes a lot more sense now smile

      The rss feed works! Just another quick question, if I wanted to create a custom rss feed for different categories, for example a rss feed just to do with history, or one to do with business, is this possible?

      Thanks again!

      (I hope they do allow bing integration soon, i think it would make a big difference)

        I wish.

        In order to create a Taxonomic RSS feed, HP would have to give us access to our sub.domain xml.gz, in order to customize their present use of data-vocabulary.org for PageMaps, Microdata.
        You could categorize your hubs using the Groups feature to assist for the moment, which helps with internal seek/find of your Hubs. I had actually suggested precisely this:  SUGGESTION: Clustered and/or PageMap Hub Feeds but, alas, the idea has gone ignored/unresponsive, so far.

        James.

    I had been looking and found this. I downloaded the trial and it work s fast. When your sitemap is completed, you can choose to have it pinged also. Highly recommend

    Too technically "scary" for me to mess with.   ....   I consider myself doing well that I know the html codes for bold, italic, underline and font size/colors.

      Thats funny, this is way easier then you might think. I tried it and after it set up (2min) I submitted various sitemaps to over 5 websites in less then 15 minutes with no technical know-how. Just food for thought!

        Sitemaps have to be stored in a domain or subdomain.  How do you put the sitemap you generated into your Hubpages subdomain?

          Once you have at least 10 approved hubs or 10 approved questions, HP generates a sitemap for your subdomain... they do not provide it to you but James has shown what it looks like above.   

          For those with 10 or less hubs then you have the option of using your RSS feed and the structure for that is listed by James above as well.  This is the easiest option and it can be submitted to webmaster tools so that the Googlebot can crawl your subdomain.  This option is not available yet for Bing because there is no way to verify ownership of the subdomain.

            For those who may be interested, it is not necessary to have a sitemap to have the Googlebot crawl and index your Hub subdomain.  If you have a Google Webmaster Tools account, you can ADD A Site, using your Hubpages subdomain URL, and Google will scan your subdomain and set it up for future indexing.  It is good practice to add a sitemap when you can.

            I submitted my Hub subdomain to Google, as described above, with no RSS feed or sitemap and I have less than 10 Hubs, but I get more traffic through Google than through Hubpages views.  My stats show that I get traffic from Google.com, Google.com.br, Google.com.sa, Google.com.ph, and Google.com.uk search engines.

          I used Google's webmaster tools and clicked on the Add/Test sitemap under my hubpages domain. You just enter the sitemap file name in the box and click submit.
