In general, this is a list of URLs for your website in a form of XML file (it also known as Google Sitemap. Besides that it allows you to include additional SEO-specific 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, Baidu, AOL, Yandex, etc.) won't have any problems with understanding your sitemap files.
XML Sitemap sample:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
The produced by our generator 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 file can contain not more than 50,000 URLs and may not be larger than 10 Megabytes.
...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 World Wide 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:
If you happen to have broken links on your website, our Sitemap Generator will scan those and inform you if any are dead, and which specific pages need to be fixed.
Creating XML Sitemap is easy with our free online XML Sitemap generator. To get your map file 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 last time the URL was modified. This information helps search engine indexers and crawlers to decide whether the resource requires visiting. You can let our free sitemap creation tool 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.
