#Description 
--------------
Sitemap Creator crawls/spiders your website creating XML sitemaps compatible with the standard sitemaps.org
protocol supported by Google, Yahoo!, MSN and MoreOver.  The script  pings Google, Yahoo!, MSN and MoreOver
bots to download the sitemap file, then tracks the bot and sends you an email on every scan to your Sitemap
and gives you a full report of the Search Engine respond.  
Sitemaps are created from a CSV file which could easily be edited using any text editor before creating the
sitemap.  Sitemap Creator has three built in ranking mechanism which decide priorities of your pages depending 
on the number and the placement of link backs, crawled first links or URL structure. You can also limit the 
crawler by memory, run time or number of URLs.
