Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft Agree on Sitemap Specs

Yahoo! and Microsoft will be supporting a standard sitemap protocol made popular by Google.

For those of you who have already implemented sitemap for your web site based on Google’s sitemap protocol, there’s no changes that you need to do (at least, for the time being) as the agreed protocol and the Google implementation are virtually identical.

Thanks to T.Longren for the heads up.

    After playing with IE7 a bit, they seem to be on the right track. However, I can’t conclude on this until I have a feel on how well they keep it updated.
