    since our site map plug-in is manual and every time we generate the site map manually we have to log in to relevant search engine's webmaster tools to resubmit the site map for faster inclusion in the search engine index.

    i was tired of doing this hence, i came out of an idea to implement and submit site map from my site map plug-in page.

    I pasted the following code on /plugins/gy_sitemap/admin/templates/index.tpl

    Code:
    <div><p>
    <a href="http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ping?sitemap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Google</a><br />
    <a href="http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/updateNotification?appid=YahooDemo&url=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Yahoo</a><br />
    <a href="http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Ask.com</a><br />
    <a href="http://www.bing.com/webmaster/ping.aspx?siteMap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Bing</a><br />
    </p>
    </div>
    Note: change the URL http://www.my-company-profile.com to your site map's site URL.


    So every time after generating the site map i just click on the above links to ping search engines.

    By this my sites listings are getting indexed faster than before.

    What do you all think? is it the right idea? is it helpful?

    If just tried it on my page and get a successful submission screen except the one from Yahoo
    <Error>

    The following errors were detected:

    <Message>limit exceeded</Message>
    </Error>

    maybe thats the size of my directory?

    what is the number of sitemap links? if it is too much in 1 page, do it like this, copy half of the links and create a fresh file as sitemap1.xml and put this sitemap1.xml link (give priority 0.80) on the main page, i.e., sitemap.xml, that would do the trick. and both sitemaps would be indexed... hope this helps...

    In your case.
    I would have corrected the path that gave a colleague;
    PHP:
    <div><p>
    <
    a href="http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ping?sitemap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Google</a><br />
    <
    a href="http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/updateNotification?appid=YahooDemo&url=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Yahoo</a><br />
    <
    a href="http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Ask.com</a><br />
    <
    a href="http://www.bing.com/webmaster/ping.aspx?siteMap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/tmp/sitemap/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Bing</a><br />
    </
    p>
    </
    div>
    To:
    PHP:
    <div><p>
    <
    a href="http://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/ping?sitemap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/tmp/sitemap/google/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Google</a><br />
    <
    a href="http://search.yahooapis.com/SiteExplorerService/V1/updateNotification?appid=YahooDemo&url=http://www.my-company-profile.com/tmp/sitemap/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Yahoo</a><br />
    <
    a href="http://submissions.ask.com/ping?sitemap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/tmp/sitemap/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Ask.com</a><br />
    <
    a href="http://www.bing.com/webmaster/ping.aspx?siteMap=http://www.my-company-profile.com/tmp/sitemap/sitemap.xml" target="_blank">Submit Site map to Bing</a><br />
    </
    p>
    </
    div>
    Because you have such a file location on yours the server
    Example:
    http://www.raid24.de/tmp/sitemap/yahoo/urllist.txt
    I hope I helped
