The one to beat.
Keep an eye on
Google Sitemaps, Google Analytics, Google Local for Mobile
The current hot topics at Google are its new SEO-friendly products. One is
Google Sitemaps, a service that allows the site owner to submit a list of URLs and
other factors to Google for improved indexing (but not improved ranks). And the other
is Google Analytics, a robust conversion tracking service. Both products are in the beta
phase of development as of this writing.
Products like these have been around for years. So why are they big news in the
SEO community? Two reasons: They’re free, and they come from Google.
