Title: Sitemap generator introduction and features
Post by: Webhelpforums on November 01, 2011, 01:53:12 PM
Want to use XML sitemaps to help search engines find and index your pages faster? Or ensure you push link juice to all your internal pages through using a HTML sitemap? Or maybe a HTML/CSS sitemap that uses your website layout and helps your human visitors navigate your site?

To get started creating sitemaps using A1 Sitemap Generator (http://www.microsystools.com/products/sitemap-generator/), just enter your domain address and hit the "Start scan" button:

After the website crawl finishes, you will see website analysis data like this:

(http://www.microsystools.com/products/sitemap-generator/screenshots/w740-sitemap-data-collected-details.png)

Note that the default configuration will ensure URLs excluded in "robots.txt" or marked "noindex" are removed from the website scan results. URLs that reference other through "canonical" are shown, but not included in finished sitemaps.


You can create most kinds of Google related sitemaps including:

Create fully customizable visual sitemaps using HTML/CSS:

I had been wondering how to create a site map for awhile. This should help, because for awhile I thought I might have to do it the "hard way." That is, I thought I would have to do it by hand.

100 000 pages (and more) should not be a problem at all using A1 Sitemap Generator :)

I make a number of niche blogs.

Can I make a control blog and add, for example, 4 different sitemaps, like-xml; images; videos; news-and then "duplicate the control blog each time", and quickly change the url's and stuff like that each time, instead of creating each website one-by one and adding each sitemap again-and-again?

Are you say you have 4 exact same blogs? If so, yes, you can override the root address when creating sitemaps. (This feature was original made so people could scan localhost instead of their online website.)

See:
http://www.microsystools.com/products/sitemap-generator/help/xml-sitemap-generator-localhost/ (http://www.microsystools.com/products/sitemap-generator/help/xml-sitemap-generator-localhost/)

If I misunderstood you, let me know!

Thank you for your response.

And i think you may already have answered my question, but still, just to make sure, let me ask the question again using other words.

Let's say I build one website and add the sitemap generator to it.

Let's call that website: Website A

Can I duplicate Website A four times (Websites b;c;d and e) and then quickly reconfigure the sitemap inside each one?

Or must I upload a sitemap separately for each of those four websites?


Thanks,

A1 Sitemap Generator create sitemaps, and, yes, you can duplicate the generated XML sitemaps :)

Simply override the root URL used when building the sitemaps. Refer to help documentation link I posted earlier :)

(Alternatively, you could simply run a text search-replace yourself in a text editor when you want to use website A sitemap.xml for website B.)

I hope this solves your question. Remember you can download a trial of A1 Sitemap Generator and then write again if you have specific problems! (e.g. if you can't get something working)

I have been using the same method but there is a question. what if many of your links are generated by website users. how are we supposed to update the map?
Title: Re: Sitemap generator introduction and features
Post by: generalboxel on June 07, 2017, 02:58:27 PM
All the softwares and websites I find online have limit to generate sitemap. some have 500 link limit and some more. Also, I do not know if the PRIORITY section is still on or obsolete.

Automate the sitemap crawl, build, upload and ping process to run once every night or similar:

About priority values in XML sitemaps see these articles:

A1 Sitemap Generator calculates priority values based on internal linking. We suspect Google uses priority values to help prioritize which URLs get crawled first

You do not need to submit it again - but do update it. Google will pick it up automatically.

Is it important to have all your internal links on your sitemap? I figured google indexes all the links regardless provided that they have good content worth indexing.
Title: Re: Sitemap generator introduction and features
Post by: Webhelpforums on January 28, 2019, 07:13:34 PM
I would include all internal pages you want indexed. It can help speed up indexation. But it depends on your website how large a benefit it is.

There are also other thing to consider such as: Image sitemaps, video sitemaps, hreflang xml sitemaps, giving priority in XML sitemaps to your important content pages, letting Google know which pages recently changed/added etc.
