    Barry, great points. I stopped using a sitemap.xml file for one of my sites to test, but could never find time to benchmark results. Does putting your sitemap.xml link inside your robots.txt file help for other search engines read your sitemap such as Yahoo, or should you upload a file to them too?

    Great post!

    I think both work, but you won’t get the data in google webmaster tool without submitting directly, i think.
