What is XML Sitemap?

In general, this is a list of URLs for your website in a form of XML file (it also known as Google Sitemap because it was introduced first by Google). Besides that it allows you to include additional information about each URL such as the date it was last updated, how often it changes, and how important it is. XML format ensures that this information can be easily processed on different kinds of computers, applications and systems, so Search engines (Google, Yahoo, Bing, Ask, AOL etc) won't have any problems with understanding your sitemap files.

XML Sitemap sample:

        <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
<url>
<loc>http://www.example.com/</loc>
<lastmod>2005-01-01</lastmod>
<changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
<priority>0.8</priority>
</url>
<url>

<loc>http://www.example.com/about.htm</loc>
<changefreq>daily</changefreq>
</url>
</urlset>

The sitemap example above contains 2 URLs and all of the allowed optional tags: <lastmod>, <changefreq> and <priority>.

There are a couple of limitations imposed by Google: a single XML sitemap file can contain not more then 50,000 URLs and may not be larger than 10 Megabytes.

Why do you need a Sitemap

...because it allows to inform Search Engines about important pages on your website. That increases its visibility to Google, Bing, Yahoo, Baidu, Yandex etc, and ensures indexing of the web pages that might not be discovered otherwise. Those provide additional information about your site to searching engines, complementing their traditional methods of crawling the web. All major search engines use the same XML-based protocol for that. This means that having an XML Sitemap will let Google, Yahoo, Microsoft's Bing (MSN), and Ask have up-to-date information any time you upload a new map file to your server.

XML Sitemaps are especially helpful if:

  • You have a brand new website
  • Your web-site has dynamic content generated by CMS (Joomla, Wordpress, Drupal, DotNetNuke, etc)
  • Your have got a lot of pages
  • You don't have desired Google PageRank
  • Your website has complex navigation
  • Some of your webpages are either not accessible from the main page and its children, or are burried too deep in the page hierarchy

If you happen to have broken links on your website, our Sitemap Generator will detect those and inform you of all the dead links and the pages these links are on!

How to create XML Sitemap

Creating XML Sitemap is easy with our free online XML Sitemap generator. To get xml sitemap generated simply type in your URL and on the next page make selections for 3 optional parameters - page changing frequency, last modified date and page priority. See sitemap maker page screenshot.

What is "Page changing frequency"?
This value indicates how frequently the content at a particular URL is likely to change.

What is "Last modified date"?
The time the URL was last modified. This information allows search engines' crawlers to avoid recrawling documents that haven’t changed. You can let the generator take the information from your server or specify your own date and time.

What is "Page priority"?
The priority of a particular page relative to other pages on the same website. As Google specified the value for this tag is a number between 0.0 and 1.0 where 0.0 identifies the lowest priority page(s) on your website, and 1.0 - the highest. The default priority of a page is 0.5. Note that our map builder can generate page priorities for you automatically by analyzing relative positions of your web pages in the website tree.

Uploading your XML Sitemap

Uploading is very easy: just download the generated sitemap.xml file from our download page and place it into the root directory of your website (most of the time root directory is the directory where your index file is).

Is it safe?

Yes, web-site-map.com xml sitemap builder browses only web pages that are freely accessible by everyone. Content restricted by your robots.txt file from Google, Yahoo, Bing, and other search engines will not be included in your sitemap.xml file: the online generator script will simply skip it.
