Search Engines

Getting your website online is one thing, making it appear in search engines such as google is another. A good start is having a look at the Google Webmaster tools.

Sitemaps

Although most search engines automatically can index your sites, they all appreciate a sitemap that reveals all relevant pages to be indexed. This is particularly interesting if your site is new and does not have a lot of external links referencing to your web pages. More information can be found here.

Robots.TXT

The robots.txt file has 2 primary functions

  • instructing bots (such as google and other search engines) which pages or subfolders to ignore when indexing your website (eg. if you have archive folders or work folders). See www.robotstxt.org 
  • pointing bots to your sitemap file as explained here
