Hi All.

Trying to create a sitemap for my boss' websites.

I've tried several tools and, for each site, all the tools only show one page when each site consists of several pages.

I'm sure I'm missing something.

Please help!

Thanks

I use GSiteCrawler Google Sitemap Generator from SOFTplus http://gsitecrawler.com/ for Google Sitemaps if that's what you're talking about.

Are the sites using 'Flash' navigation?

No.  Javascript.
I didn't think about that.

Do I have to manually create the xml file if that's the case.

Here's the url.

Sitemap programs only read the HTML file and do nothing with javascript.  Just like the Googlebot which can't index your site because there are no links there until the javascript runs.  None of the search engines can read javascript.

Yep, looks like you need to create the sitemap manually.  Note that it needs to conform to Google's sitemap format.

You will need to create that sitemap manually or even better just add normal hyperlinks (no js) somewhere in the footer area on your main page then upload that page and then go to xml-sitemaps.com enter your URL and they will crawl your site and find all the pages for you.

After that you can remove those hyperlinks although I would recommend you keep them and add them to all the other pages. That way robots will be able to crawl your site and index your content properly.
