Consistent Sitemap Protocol from the Search Engines
Thursday, November 16, 2006
Here something interesting, the major search engines are working on something together, a formula for sitemap protocol. Google, Yahoo and Microsoft announced they’ll support the Sitemaps format (which originated as Google Sitemaps) together. This is welcomed news as I've always been a fan of Google Sitemaps since its inception in the summer of 2005. If you visit Sitemaps.org, you will see a brief description of what the initiative is along with some XML tag definitions. The site goes on to state:

"Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site."

It's great to see the engines working together on a project such as this. Let's hope that this is the start of many similar ventures.

    Sitebases, the next protocol after Sitemaps
    It can save the time and press for the search engine, also for the websites.
    It can bring new search engine that named Search Engine 2.0 .
    Using Sitebases protocol, will save 95% bandwidth above. It is another sample for long tail theory.
    In this protocol, I suggested that all search engine can share their Big Sitebases each other, so the webmaster just need to submit their Sitebases to one Search Engine.
    And I suggested that all search engines can open their search API for free and unlimited using.
