How to create .xml sitemap?

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by David2UAll, Jun 23, 2009.

    Someone suggested I create a .xml sitemap of our website http://www.nanoplatformsystems.com

    Is there a tool (hopefully free) that will generate this for me?

    Hi David,

    You can generate an XML sitemap for free at http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ , although I dont believe so much in their quality, but they are the best free ones out there.

    ^yeah the quality sucks but you can generate alot of the code and then go back and correct it. I run mine and then strip the code down to the basic format. saves some time but with out correcting it I just get error messages.

    You can create a sitemap.xml in a second and submit that on google or other webmaster sites. It really works. You can also check the broken links and all. xml-sitemaps really works well.

    This is the generator we suggest:

    http://www.auditmypc.com/free-sitemap-generator.asp

    It's a browser run java program that scans your entire site. Doing so will also check for broken links, images and the like.

    There's no restriction or limit on the number of pages that is indexes.

    Hope this helps,

    The problem is, those sites are limited on the number of urls each one supports. xml-sitemaps is limited to something like 500 urls. That creates an issue if you have thousands of pages - like a forum or a busy blog.

    You should really get a sitemap generator that works with your content management system. That way the sitemap can have up to 50,000 urls in it and its generated everynight. You want something that is automatic and flexible. And a lot of the sitemap generators ping the search engines when a new sitemap has been made. The sitemap generator I have on my blog, it updates everytime I post a new article or make changes to an old article.

    If you are happy with a 30 days free trial, but otherwise fully functional, you can try A1 Sitemap Generator
