This category is primarily for informational sites about the sitemap files produced by website owners for the benefit of search engines. It may also include tools for generating and analysing such files. Individual sitemap files for specific sites are not listed here, not are the sites of companies offering general SEO services. Suggesting inappropriate sites to this category will only delay their review and potential listing by editors.
Search engines which provide specialised search results.
Please only submit specialised search engines which serve unique content, eg. a site simply providing an alternative style sheet for Google results should not be submitted. A specialised search engine should be one that indexes content from the internet not simply a web site, forum or directory with it''s own search function. Search engines for specific topics should generally be listed under that topic. So if your search engine is focussed on a particular topic, then please suggest it somewhere under that topic instead. In particular, travel searches and real estate consolidation sites will not be listed in the category.
