OT: does google sitemap.xml need to be linked to the site?

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Mike Scirocco, Feb 10, 2007.

  1. I created a google sitemap.xml file and I was wondering if the site has
    to include a link to the file since it's not useful to the average
    viewer of the site. Can the file just sit on the server without being
    linked to anything and still be effective?
