How to set up a cron job for sitemap?

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by Obie18, Jan 10, 2012.

  1. #1
    I want to set up a cron job so that my sitemap will update automatically. I know how to set the command up for when to update the file, but aren’t sure about the actual command itself. I did a Google search for info, but the various cron job commands I found differed depending on the individual software used. The sitemap I'm using is an xml file.

    Many thanks!

    It would help if you could write what sitemaps tool you are using to create XML sitemaps... (And which you want to automate using Cron)

    Have you tried email the author of the sitemapper tool you are using for help?

    I used Wonderwebware's sitemap generator version 9.71 to create the sitemap.

    I made a post on their blog a couple of days ago, asking what the command should be, but have yet to receive a response. That's why I'm asking here. None of their documentation provides the answer.

    The sitemap's designer has told me that the software doesn't have cron job functionality yet, but he will consider adding it for a future release. I'm going to stick with Wonderwebware though, because it's the best free sitemap generator I've tried, and I've tried about ten of them. It has no page limits, which is an annoying disability in most free sitemap software, and it crawls super fast.
