How Do I Create an XML Site Map to Get on Search Engines?

Apparently you can get yourself (your website) listed on google and other search engines really quickly if you have an XML sitemap and submit it on Google web master tools... Question is, how do i create one?

I found a really good website for creating XML sitemaps to submit to Google and other search engines at http://www.createxmlsitemaps.com – you can upload it to Google through google webmaster tools which is linked from that site.

While crawling your website as an XML sitemap generator, we analyze the HTML content on your webpages to ensure that you have a spider friendly website.
Site Search uses the content on your webpages to populate a mini search engine for your website including thumbnail images for each page.
Real-Time Search Results show you what your visitors are looking for when they visit your website. Tailor your content to what your visitors want to see.

You can create XML sitemaps. XML Sitemaps are a joint effort by Google, Yahoo and MSN. Other search engines may support them.

You can create an XML Sitemap manually, automatically via server-side scripting, or have some website or software generate it. XML Sitemaps allow you to complement the functionality of robots.txt, a file used for web-crawlers to help navigate and index your site.

XML Sitemaps are more powerful, giving you more control over how your site is indexed. Therefore, using software or a website to automatically generate an XML Sitemap defeats the purpose of having one, as these services do not know what your site needs.

XML Sitemaps do not make your site get indexed faster. There are no "tricks" to get your website listed quicker on search engines. It will get indexed when it gets indexed. You are not more important than the millions of other people who want their site listed.

The XML Sitemap protocol is available at the official website (below). The XSD schemas are also available for download. If you don’t know how to create XML files, or use XSDs, you either need to take a crash course in XML, or be content with the fact that you don’t really need an XML Sitemap.
