After reading this article, you will have a basic understanding of principles associated with site indexing and indexing your site content. You will be able to create a map on your own that is within the standards of Google.


There are two types of site maps: the content index and the search engine index defined as the Sitemap with an uppercase “S”.

This article is concerned with the search engine. We want to tell the spiders and crawlers how to read our site.

Site Index

The content index is a document that lists content for visitors to your site. A link is displayed on your web pages that will take your visitor to this index and displays a listing of your site content. Some people call this a “sitemap” but it’s really a part of the navigational menu, an extra page on the site.

Map Creation.

HTML tags communicate the important structural information about your site. The information is summarized using tags and makes it easy for the spiders and crawlers to digest.


To make sure that your entire site is indexed, the xhtml Sitemap document is necessary.

Make me a Sitemap.

The quickest way to create a Sitemap is to use a text editor such as Notepad.

  1. Open a new text document.
  2. Type the full URL address (including “http://www.”) of your index page.
  3. Type the full URL of each page you want indexed, each on a separate line.
  4. Save the file as “sitemap” with the “txt” or text-only extension.
  5. Upload this file to your root directory.

This is how to create a sitemap for your site promotion.

Income Opportunity Home-Based Business

The income opportunity home based business industry is HUGE! There are tons of options for you to choose from and it will largely depend on your personality which opportunity you go with. At Thrive Learning Institute you will get proper guidance on which opportunity is right for you!Multi-Level Marketingone of the most popular opportunities is called Multi-level marketing. this is a model that allows you to build a down-line of business owners that “work for you” so to speak. They aren’t accountable to you but a percentage of the money from those you recruit will be paid to you. Imagine If you got a down-line of 100 people all running business bringing in $3000 per month and you got 10% of each of there profits. that would total $3000 for you every month without doing a single thing.Now factor in what you could do with your own business and that adds up. Also imagine if you kept adding people to your down-line so that you got more and more passive income. The potential is huge and can be run right from home.Some of the drawbacks to MLM’s are the fact that most of the money you can make comes from getting people into your down-line. This will take a lot of selling and convincing for you to really reap the benefits. For some people who have natural talent in sales this would be a perfect business model to get into. However if you’re not so much of a people person I would recommend you stay away from it. Don’t worry, the income opportunity home based business world has other options and Thrive Learning Institute has thorough curriculum for most of them.Internet Based OpportunitiesInternet based opportunities are exciting because new technology is allowing you to focus more on strategy rather than busy work. Also there are several models that allow you to completely bypass the human factor. No customers, no bosses, no up-line or down-line and no employees. Of course doing it all yourself does take a lot of motivation and discipline but you can turn the passive income into a lifetime monthly payment and never have to deal with anyone.The business model that exemplifies this the best on the internet is the affiliate marketing and AdSense niche websites models both of which have extensive resources in Thrive Learning Institute’s E-Library income opportunity home based businesses are exciting but at the same time require a lot of boldness and an entrepreneurial spirit. If you have these characteristics then go for it! The income opportunity home based business industry is waiting for you!

Are Most Home Based Businesses Scams?

You’ve probably heard that most home based business opportunities that you find on the Internet are scams. There are a lot of scams on the Internet, but very few of the home based business opportunities are scams.Don’t get me wrong. A lot of the home based business opportunities you find on the Internet should be viewed with extreme caution because they try to make you believe that you will earn a six figure income with very little effort and no training, but I wouldn’t classify them as scams.A scam is a deliberate attempt to dupe, deceive, or trick you into believing something is real when the scammer knows that it is not.One of the most famous scams is The Nigerian Advance Fee Scheme. It involves the receipt of an unsolicited letter purporting to come from someone who claims to work for the Nigerian Central Bank or from the Nigerian government. In the letter, a Nigerian claiming to be a senior civil servant will inform the recipient that he is seeking a reputable foreign company into whose account he can deposit funds ranging from $10-$60 million which the Nigerian government overpaid on some procurement contract.The goal of the scam artist is to delude the victim into thinking that he or she has been singled out to participate in a very lucrative — although questionable — arrangement. The intended victim is reassured of the authenticity of the arrangement by forged or false documents bearing apparently official Nigerian government letterhead, seals, as well as false letters of credit, payment schedules and bank drafts. The scam artist may even establish the credibility of his contacts, and thereby his influence, by arranging a meeting between the victim and “government officials” in real or fake government offices.Once the victim becomes confident of the potential success of the deal, something goes wrong. The victim is then pressured or threatened to provide one or more large sums of money to save the venture. For example, an official will demand an up-front bribe or an unforeseen tax or fee to the Nigerian government will have to be paid before the money can be transferred. Each fee paid is described as the very last fee required. The scheme may be stretched out over many months.That is the sort of scheme I think of when someone says that something is a scam.I have not found any home based business opportunities that are such blatant scams. The problem is that many home based business opportunities lead you to believe that what you are seeking can be achieved much quicker and more easily than is likely. They are not scams because what they say is possible, but it is highly unlikely.Leo Saraceni, a home based business expert, notes that two types of people buy into the hype or the scam:”1) the excited, impulsive, no-previous experience entrepreneur: he/she will buy into the hype, even after researching basic things like the Business Bureau, put their heart into the business for about a month, get overwhelmed by the fact that they’re actually running a business that they know nothing about, and quit.Those folks turn around and classify their experience as a scam – they populate scams[dot]com simply to try and “get back” at the company”2) the opportunity seeker, looking for immediate gratification: those are the people that really get scammed because they believe some banker in Hong Kong is going to transfer a TRILLION dollars into their account if they just give them $100.”So, what should you conclude?Most home based business pitches are full of hype, but that doesn’t make them scams. You should take the hype with a grain of salt. Do what lawyers call “due diligence”. Find out all you can about the company, its products, the company founders, its markets, and its compensation plan. Try to talk with its distributors to see what success they have had and how long it took them to achieve it. If I can be of any help with your “due diligence”, don’t hesitate to email me.
