Using a sitemap.xml on your website appears to be the future of SE submission. Most professionals recommend adding a sitemap XML file to your website so search engines can better find all your website pages.

You can use Notepad to create this file and upload it to the root folder in your hosting area where your index.html is located. Replace "your-web-domain.com" with your domain in the above example and upload a sitemap.xml to your hosting area. The "Disallow: /cgi-bin/" line keeps search engines out of the "cgi-bin" folder. See robots.txt at Wikipedia for more details.
