Publishing, Backlinks and Google Site Map
For the last 3 weeks I've been working extremely hard on my first website and it should be ready for publishing sometime next week. Everything is going fine by now but there are a few things (very basic ones - don't laugh please) that I am confused about.
1. When I publish my pages, do I only upload the created pages or should I also separetely upload every single file which was used (photos, Works or Word documents from which I copied my text etc.)
2. I was looking at some relevant sites for potential link exchange and noticed that some of them want you to copy and paste some HTML code into your page if you want your link to appear on their site.
Why is that necessary?
I thought writing down and linking their URL only, or in fact just linking a one word or a photo back to their site will do the job.
Is there a difference?
3. Is Google Site Map a good thing to include into your site? Are there any negative sides of it?
Also if your site already has a site map page can you include a Google Site Map as well?
Thanks in advance for any input.
