What is a Sitemap file and why should I have one ?

Site Map
In general, there are two types of sitemaps:

  1. The first type of sitemap is a HTML page listing the pages of your site – often by section – and is meant to help users find the information they need.
  2. The second type are XML Sitemaps – usually called Sitemaps, with a capital S – are a way for you to give search engines more information about your site.

See http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=40318

Site Map Index
If you have a lot of pages and only some change frequently then a sitemapindex file is useful

You can list the URLs that change frequently in a small number of Sitemaps and then use the lastmod tag in your Sitemap index file to identify those Sitemap files. Search engines can then incrementally crawl only the changed Sitemaps.

See http://www.sitemaps.org/faq.php#faq_submitting_changes

Planning a Semantic Web site

This IBM developer works article discusses what you need to know to make your Web site part of the Semantic Web. It starts with a discussion of the problems the Semantic Web tries to solve and then moves to the technologies involved, such as Resource Description Framework (RDF), Web Ontology Language (OWL), and SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language (SPARQL). You'll see how the Semantic Web is layered on top of the existing Web. It then covers some issues that you want to know about when you plan a new Web site and also gives specific examples of how to use technologies like RDFa and Microformats to enable your existing Web site to become a part of the Semantic Web.
