Hi - i have just made some changes and i wanted to add a new sitemap to my webmaster account, i notice the pages are not yet showing on the map?

Hi Duke, your sitemap is updated whenever you publish your website. The version you see may be cached however, so if it appears not to be updating after you upload, then try clear your cache and refresh.

You can also make your own sitemap and upload it to your file manager, then your sitemap will be available at: www.yoursite.com/resources/sitemap.xml (assuming you named the file you uploaded to your resource manager sitemap.xml) - you would just point google webmaster to that file.

You can find out more about what you can do with a sitemap at www.sitemaps.org.
