Google Sitemaps and Search History

Google Sitemaps and Search History: "Google Sitemaps and Search History
Well I finally got around to looking at google sitemaps (googlesitemaps). If you don't already have a google account (gmail acount also) just register for one. I have been wanting to test this service out. So I embarked on creating a simple xml (sitemap based file) for this site. I downloaded the python script and started to run it. I do like python but figured since I was running windows and did not have python on this computer I would do some looking. I found a great application called Gsitemap ( It is a little .net app that lets you use a gui to make a google sitemap file. The nice part about this is you can do mutiple sites quickly. One thing to mention is that I found the software on my work computer. When I got home and wanted to try it. I googled for about 15 min and could not find any reference to it. Then I got to thinking, I could just use my google search history. And so, I kicked myself for being stupid and found the link and download in less than a min. Way to go Google. "

Demo of how to use CSS instead of frames in your web page.
Simulation of Frames with CSS

Frames are a convenient way of displaying
content, part of which does not change like the top banner portion and
a links section (our left links section). However, the major drawbacks
are that users cannot bookmark individual pages easily, and search
engines would not generate proper hits to those pages.

BEFORE you use MS Word to build your webpages, you might want to
read Web Publishing: Using Word as Web Publisher?, UWEC

When converting a Word document to HTML, we recommend that you transfer the content, but not the formatting. You can do this in one of two ways:

Using copy and paste, past the text from Word into Notepad. Copy the text from Notepad to your web editor. This option is a sure way to remove background code from Word.

Using copy and paste, past the text from Word into your web editor using a Paste as Text or Normal option if available. This option pastes the content only.

Much Dewchurch - County of Hereford

dew1: "Poor Man's Wood, which runs down the side of Coles Tump above the Mynde is really 'Devil's Wood', for in Saxon times as now in Germany, Satan is often spoken of as the 'Poor Man' and preserved memories of the rights in which the ancient inhabitants offered victims to Coel the God of Heaven. Everyone in the parish knows the legend that if a tree is felled in that wood, the owner of the Mynde or his heir will die within the year. "

Anciently the area of South Herefordshire (Archenfield) was quite lawless. The breach with Rome 1534, was a new cause for disorder for in the Welsh borders Catholic feeling ran strong. In that year an Act was passed for the punishment of Welshmen attempting assault in Herefordshire. By the Act of Union 1536, the border lordships were assimilated to England. Herefordshire had been subjected to consistent intrusion by the Welsh. Even the Pye (ap Hugh) family were involved, for in 1523 Walter Apie, in Dewchurch sued out a pardon for burglary at Dewsall in the house of John A'Court, with intent to murder him, for which he was outlawed. Earlier, Thomas Barre of Dewsall had complained that John Aberhall of Archenfield had sent John and Walter ap Pee (Pye) and others numbering sixty, in war-like array to cut his hay and corn. The archives are full of such disturbances at this early period.

However, there is one thing worse than an unattractive home page. It’s a slow home page to download. If the home page takes too long to download, your visitors will go elsewhere. Bearing in mind that the majority of users on the internet are still using dial up, you have to keep your home page simple. Therefore whatever you do, don’t overload your home page with flashy images and animations.
