    1) Download ROR to your desktop
    2) Unzip and install ROR

    3) Where it says Site URL enter your domain name...Our Domain name is www.vodahost.com whats yours?
    4) Click "generate sitemap"
    5) when the site map is done, click "save as"
    6) save it to your desk top as ror
    7) upload it to your public_html folder using blueFTP. If you do not know how to do this, click the below link for a tutorial on the topic

    Thanks for the download prog ROR Generator, Now as I have two boxing gloves for hands how do I use it best?
    Do I for instance place the web pages of my site under construction and then they will be sorted or am I as usual barking up the wrong tree?
    Regards

    Don't stress, the first thing to do is get your site up and running. If your
    site is not done, ROR will have nothing to map out....Let's not try to put
    the horse before the cart.

    Steps to follow...

    1) Finish site
    2) Map site

    Thanks for the Sitemap link. Its easy to use.
    One question:
    Is 'FTP transfer' of the ror sitemap file to my Index folder all that I need to do to complete sitemap upload - anything else that I need to check?
    Regards

    Just upload the complete sitemap to your public_html and create a very discreet hyperlink to it
    from your home page. Google will do the rest.

    You can use BlueFTP to upload it. Click the below to learn more about BlueFTP.

    You probably just got a bad download. Delete what you downloaded and try again.

    Hey Brad - I downloaded the program and when I tried to install it that was the message I recieved. The message I get is:
    This network requires the .NET Framework version 1.1.4322. Please install the .NET Framework and run this set up again.
    I looked on my program list and I have the 1.1.3 version but Im guessing I need an upgrade on it. Ill try your link - Thank you so much!

    ROR Sitemap Generator will crawl your Web site and automatically generate a ROR Sitemap. ROR is a rapidly growing XML format, flexible and complete for describing Web site content (sitemaps, products, services, menus, images, reviews, contact info, business info), so search engines like Google can better understand its information.

    I am confused..
    I downloaded the ror.zip into BlueVoda.

    Do I then save this zip into BlueVoda, Open? then unzip, then save in BlueVoda?

    Next?? in BlueFTP, make a new folder called zipfiles? Will it unzip from there?
    Need more input, sorry for the confusing.

    Bird,

    ROR has nothing to do with BlueVoda, keep them separate. unzip and
    install ROR, Please read through this thread for more instructions. Please
    read the thread exactly above yours to learn how to use BlueFTP.

    In your instructions you said: " Create a hyperlink from your home page to the xml file."

    Should I create a small text area and provide the link to that text?
    How can I test the link to be sure that it is ok?


    The way you link it is up to you. test the link by clicking on it.

    The link is in a small mountain Image at the top right hand side of my page. Or should I be setting the hyperlink up differently.

    Also can you let me know when you click on the hyperlink is this the info that is supposed to show or have I done something wrong.

    Question Re: Your Google Sitemap

    Hi,

    Another question about the sitemap. If you have more than one page on your website, do you add that link to your sitemap as well. Also If your website is on other peoples websites, (link exchanges) would you add their site to the generator. A bit new to all this so any help on how to get the most out of tool would be great.

    Just your home page is fine..It is your most important page. It is the starting
    point of your website.

    Re: our phone conversation.
    Thanks for reinstalation :),
    Just wondering if you did have time to check the ror link on my web page. Did it need correction? In the case you did not find it, I hyperlinked it with the image of book that is on my index page...but I am not sure if I did it allright. Can you let me know?

    Dear Brad,

    I got your message with regards to the site map software.

    I have a relatively simple site, The site is published and functional (for the purpose) and I am (and will be) adding pages as new information and documentation is made available.

    Do I need to use the ROR software to create a site map? Or can I simply create and upload in my public_html a file called site_map containning links to the various pages of the site? Would that provide the same information to search engines?
    Thanks

    Chris.

    For a simple site you do not really need a site map. A site map is a
    MUST HAVE for sites that have pages that are not linked for there
    homepage...3-4 pages, I would not bother.

    One sitemap generator is enough, if your happy with your current one, there is no need to switch over.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.
    In fact, even though my site is simple in format (all pages are linked to my homepage), I have to date approx. 50 pages and ultimately there will be hundreds.
    Would this mean that a site map is a must?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    Sorry I missed something in my reply: Not all pages are linked to my homepage, in fact only a few are (less than 10).
    Is a site map then a must?

    Question Re: Your Google Sitemap

    Brad, please...

    As always, THANKS VODAHOST for being the BEST! Just a quick question: anytime we update our site (add new links, etc), should we then re-run ROR, too (and thus upload the new file via Blue FTP)?

    Also, do we just open a support ticket when we are ready to take advantage of our one-time search-engine submission which is part of our hosting package?

    Hello to ***** and Sarah, too--you all are just too helpful for words!!! Thanks in advance for the info; have a great day!
    Believe and you will achieve!

    Because I've had little luck with Google, (other SEs, OK) I decided to add ROR. According to their instructions, after creating the xml site map & uploading, I tried to insert the link
    <link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="ROR" href="ror.xml" /> into the
    HEAD portion by going to "Page HTML", picking the tab "Between Head Tag", and pasting it (it appears in the HEAD section) & publishing. Now when I go to my site and right click to "view source", the code appears in the "body" portion. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong? My site is http://www.trencon.com

    Maybe you have inserted the code wrong, it works fine when I do it.

    I downloaded the program to create a sitemap, but when I go to install the program it gives me this message [this setup requires the . NET Framework version 1.1.4322] Then it sends me to a page to download that update and I cannot figure out what one I need. Can you help me?

    What is your ROR file linked to? I can't find it. Do not just insert it in the header, also hyperlink it from your index page.

    I followed the instructions to create and save the site map. I viewed the insturctions how to add it to the FTP Manager. Then I linked the sitemap to my home page [ www.goldenleaf-lighting.com/ror.xml and when I click on it I get [NOT FOUND] My site is www.goldenleaf-lighting.com the link is on Copyright. What did I do wrong?

    What is the next step after adding the sitemap? I saw something about asking you to submit my site to google or yahoo?

    HI Brad, thanks so much for a fantastic site, really makes the bushmen in me feel like a bit of a computer wiz !. well not quite but I feel I have come along way. I have just downloaded the ROR sitemap to my public_html. I believe all is okay. I then created a hyperlink from my home page using the /ror.xml How can I check this is correct and how long would it be before I clients can access my sight from Google and Yahoo search engines. Thanks once again

    I downloaded ror, created the folder ror and then transfered it over to my public_html. I then disconnected and went to my Home page in Blue Voda. I brought up the Hyperlink and added www.golfandgamesafaris.com/ror.xml
    Is this correct.
    Thanks Dave.

    Yes, I get the same result in "Page HTML" but when I go to the web site, the code shows up in the body portion when "view source" is clicked on, not in the HEAD section.

    1)Remove the ror tag
    2)Save and close the page
    3)reboot your computer
    4)reinsert the tag
    5)republish the page

    If you edit your "key words" or "page description" or other information in your web site should you redo the sitemap?

    No...only when you add new pages to your website.

    Thumbs up Re: Your Google Sitemap

    Deep sigh - it took me many moons and much fish to eat and finally I do believe that the download was complete for the .net framework! I have now done as written and I think that I have the ror.xml button up and on my site correctly?! It seems to work properly any way...Thank you for the advice and help!

    Why must you close it? Move it somewhere it doesn't bother you. However youn delete it the clasic way: select it and delete it

    Upload the ror.xml file using ftp, and link the ROR image in your index page to the ror.xml file

    I added ror sitemap generator some weeks ago and it was working with Google. However, Google recently stopped finding the site (harbourfolkband.com) - I later realised I hadn't made a discreet link from the home page to the .xml file and I fixed that. I also did the whole ror generation process again and have a ror.xml file in my public_html FTP area plus a discreet link on the homepage http//www.harbourfolkband.com/ror.xml - however, Google doesn't find the site. Do you have any ideas ????

    Regards

    Not 100% certain but think you have to wait for the googlebot to crawl your site again. You can tell when it has by checking your AWSTATS in control panel.
