Sitemaps.org - Google - Yahoo - Microsoft!

Seems like the search engine #1 #2 and #3 have come together to cook up something to make their jobs easier. Meet sitemaps.org Basically you tell them the links your site using a xml file and let them know what you think is relatively important. There was already a "Sitemaps" as part of Google Webmaster's Tools which had similar features. Its good that they standardized the protocol across three major search engines and have made the specification licensed under Attribution-ShareAlike Creative Commons license. And there are many online sitemaps generators. But there seems to be no way to add one to blogspot.

Sitebases, the next protocol after Sitemaps
It can save the time and press for the search engine, also for the websites.
It can bring new search engine that named Search Engine 2.0.
Using Sitebases protocol, will save 95% bandwidth above. It is another sample for long tail theory.
In this protocol, I suggested that all search engine can share their Big Sitebases each other, so the webmaster just need to submit their Sitebases to one Search Engine.
And I suggested that all search engines can open their search API for free and unlimited using.
