How does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps serve and why are they extremely important SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - a list of all webpages arranged in sections as they appear on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a significant impact on the popularity of your website, particularly if you have more content. It will enable site visitors to go through the web pages and find what they need quicker, which will raise the possibility for them to revisit the Internet site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also needed for search engines like google to index your site content better, so that certain pages will be in the results for specific searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even when you have the necessary site content. This is especially valid when you modify some webpages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they must crawl the website again in order to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is fundamental rather than an optional feature for every profitable website.
SiteMap Generator in Cloud Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel that we provide with our cloud hosting
plans features a built-in sitemap generator tool which will enable you to create a sitemap for every website hosted in the account with only a couple of clicks. The tool features an extremely intuitive point-and-click interface that comes with a couple of options depending on how comprehensive you'd like the sitemap to be. You could choose the depth as well as the maximum number of links to be listed. If you offer various content on your Internet site, you may also add and remove specific file extensions, which allows specific file types to be included or excluded from your sitemap. A drop-down menu will permit you to select each domain or subdomain hosted within the account, so the sitemap file will be created right where it is needed and you will not have to do a thing manually.
SiteMap Generator in VPS Servers
If you go for a VPS server
provided with the Hepsia Control Panel, you'll be able to take advantage of our custom sitemap generator. The software instrument is really easy-to-work-with and creates an XML file that is search engine friendly, so all your content will be indexed properly. The interface is quite simple and with only a mouse click you will be able to pick the depth of the links that should be included, their count, and the file types which need to be included in the sitemap. The last option comes convenient in case you want only specific content to be present in the sitemap as you could add and remove file extensions. For example, you could add .doc and .pdf files and remove .php files, so the sitemap will show the path to documents and not to standard website pages. The generator allows you to pick any domain or subdomain hosted on your VPS using a basic drop-down menu, so any sitemap will be created exactly where you need it.
