    So I was goofing around with a classic html 3 page site and started adding pages based on high traffic keywords on that niche.

    I turned a 3 page adsense landing site into a site with around 100 pages.

    I have a list of all the urls in that site but not all the pages on the site link together but they all do link back to the main 3 pages.

    All the build a sitemap tools out there require all the pages be crawled from one page to another but I can not do that.

    Also I have tried following googles instructions to create a site map based on putting code in a .txt file and saving it as an xml file and that did not work either. Maybe I did it wrong?

    Can someone give me a solution for this? Something so simple should not be causing me this much frustration.

    AsI stated previously generators of these types can only create site maps for LINKED pages.

    Only 3 pages of my site link together.

    Does anyone know of a generator that allows you to upload a text file with urls and spit back out a sitemap?
     
  6. When you convert from .txt to xml , usually you loose xml doc data hence it gives you errors. Instead download a sample sitemap and work on it.

    A sitemap is nothing but an xml file. Xml file has a schema/structure. Your approach is correct create an xml file with all the elements. Elements are nothing but your 100 pages.

    Download sample sitemap of a website, look at the structure , try to replicate on your website.

    You think it would make it easier if I pulled a sitemap on a site of a similar size and ran search and replace..

    nah.. then I would still have to alter the files extension.. maybe a bit easier.
