      A site map is a listing of links to every page on a site, usually listed in some sort of hierarchy.

      I'm not sure how you would get one here on HubPages, short of building a hub that is a list of links to all your own articles. On sites of your own, there are generators or plugins that will create and update your site map for you.

        Google analytics and bing analytics asks me for one and I have no idea what they are talking about.  I put my url in from my articles but that didn't work.

          I created site maps for this account and for awordlover's account using this website:

          http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

          It will walk you through the steps so you can submit it.

            It wants me to download it and then upload it to hubpages..where do you go to upload it to hubpages?

              I only uploaded it to Google Analytics. I never did it for HubPages because there is no place to put it.

                It's very long.  It looks like all my articles are on this long page.  You upload that entire thing to GA?

                  Yes, you upload it all, but I think it only took up to 500 links, after that it said to make a second site map.  I didn't have even 100 so it wasn't a concern.

                  Sorry I can't be of more help. sad
