Sitemap Generator WordPress Plugin overview

Sitemap Generator Wordpress Plugin is used to An easy to use XML sitemap generator with support for image and video sitemaps for WordPress..

The Sitemap Generator uses an external service to crawl your website and create a XML sitemap of your website. The generator works thus for every plugin out of the box. The computation costs for your website is also very low because the crawler acts like a normal visitor, who visits all pages of your site once.

If you host your website on a dedicated server, you may not need this plugin, because you should have enough resources to generate your sitemap on your server. But if you host your website in a shared environment (as the most WordPress users do), it would be wise to outsource the generation of your sitemap to an external service like this plugin uses to generate the sitemap. This way it is guaranteed that the speed of your website is not affected for your visitors during the generation of the sitemap.

Data Aggregation and Indexable File Types

I have published a detailed document about how the Sitemap Generator aggregates the data for the generation of sitemaps and which file types are getting indexed on my website.

Sitemap Generator Data

Is the service free of charge?

The Sitemap Generator service allows you to create a sitemap with up to 500 URLs for free. If your website has more URLs or you like to integrate an image or video sitemap, you could buy the professional version to create a sitemap with up to 50000 URLs at the following website. The wordpress plugin itself is free of charge, but nearly useless without the external service. Please note that also not indexable URLs (for example .zip files) count to the quota.

Sitemap Generator Professional

Limitations

By default the Sitemap Generator indexes the first 500 URLs of your website. If your website has more URLs, please see the section 'Is the service free of charge?'.

Warnings

If you already have an existing sitemap.xml in your WordPress root directory, this file would be overwritten. It is thus recommended to backup your existing sitemap.xml file before using the Sitemap Generator. I also have not tested the generator Why does the Sitemap Generator not index any URLs of my site? Noindex set for all pages The Sitemap Generator is aware of robots (noindex) meta elements and does not list pages that are marked with the noindex attribute. I saw some websites in the wild, which have added the noindex attribute on each page. Please make sure that this is not the case for your website. Neither the Sitemap Generator nor a search engine will index your site if the noindex attribute is set globally. Site crawler blocked Another reason for a sitemap with no URLs could be that the crawler of the Sitemap Generator is blocked by your hosting provider. I have observed this issue especially with free and really cheap hosting providers. Some block crawlers (and regular visitors) already after five fast sequential requests. The issue could be fixed by whitelisting the IP of the crawler. However, I think this option is not available for the affected hosting services. Alternatively it is possible to use the crawl-delay directive in your robots.txt to set the delay between two requests. Is it possible to filter the URLs which are listed in the sitemap? The Sitemap Generator recognizes the noindex attribute if set on a page and respects your robots.txt file. It is thus possible to filter the results with these two mechanisms. A filter function in the plugin is not available, because it makes no sense in my opinion. If a page is not listed in a XML sitemap file, that means not that a search engine will not find it. Sooner or later the search engine finds and indexes the page. So the use of the noindex attribute and robots.txt are a clean solutions which is also respected by all serious search engines. Which user-agent should I use in the robots.txt file? The Sitemap Generator uses a custom user-agent group named MB-SiteCrawler. This allows you a fine grained control of which pages are parsed and added to the sitemap. If you do not define a group for the custom user-agent in your robots.txt file, the default set in the * group apply. How are images which are not embedded in a page handled? Images which are only linked to directly and not embedded in a HTML page are listed in the image sitemap and not as normal URLs. There is sadly no specification about how to handle such images, but because images need some context to be evaluated correctly in this day and age, I think the image sitemap is the best place to put them. How are embedded images from external domains are handled? If you embed images from external domains on your website, they are listed in the image sitemap. So it's no problem if you deliver your images for example through a CDN services which is available under another domain. Please not that this is only true for embedded images and not if you directly link to images on other domains. Does the Sitemap Generator work in my local development environment? No, the Sitemap Generator needs to crawl your website and the generator has no access to you local network. The Sitemap Generator is very slow. What can I do? In the most cases this is due to the fact that you have set a large value for the crawl-delay directive in your robots.txt file. Some hosters also add the crawl-delay directive automatically to your robots.txt file. The crawl-delay defines the time in seconds between to requests of the crawler.;
