I create the sitemap.xml file for my website by typing it out in a simple text editor following the instructions on the sitemaps.org website. One of the options available is to list the last modified date.
Does anyone know which time zone I should be referring to when listing the last modified date for my website?
My website files are at DreamHost’s US East Coast location. DreamHost’s head office is on the US West Coast. Maybe I should be using international time?
It always seems to be about midnight when I am uploading changes to my website.
