You can use the XML Sitemap Generator tool easily to notify search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yandex, about all your web pages and changes within them, and to ensure that all your pages are correctly indexed.
Search engines such as Google need to regularly “crawl” your site in order for your site to be indexed and ranked in the end. They do this to provide the most up-to-date content in the search results. Sometimes, search bots can crawl a site for several times a day. The crawling process is mostly algorithmic, that is, computer programs determine how often search bots should crawl each site. The more they crawl your site, the more of your content will be indexed. This leads organic traffic to be added to more of your pages shown and to your site as well. However, in order for your site to always and more often properly get crawled, it is necessary to have a structure in place. This is also called as Sitemap.
The XML Sitemap Generator tool allows you to generate a search engine friendly XML sitemap so that your site can be indexed better. Technically, XML means Extensible Markup Language (XML). It is a standard machine-readable file format consumed by other data-munching programs such as search engines and feed readers. Simply put, a Sitemap XML is a document that helps Google and other major search engines to better understand your website while crawling it.
By the fact that sitemaps list pages accordingly and provide additional information about those pages, the XML Sitemap Generator helps search engines to crawl your site more intelligently. Basically, a good sitemap means your website acts as a roadmap, which leads search engines to all your important pages. It allows Google and other search engines to find important pages on your website easily, even if your internal linking is bad. This is important because Google and other search engines index and rank specific web pages, not all websites. Therefore, even if your home URL has already been crawled and indexed by search engines, there is still the need to provide them with a properly defined sitemap to help in displaying other pages that could be hidden from the spiderbots. At this point, the importance of the XML Sitemap Generator especially comes in sight.
As to start with, enter your site's URL in the sitemap generator section. Set optional customized parameters according to your preferences. The parameters include the number of pages that you need to crawl, the frequency of changes, the default priority and the dates. After determining the desired parameters, click on the “Generate Sitemap” button. The tool will take a few minutes to analyze your request, crawl your site and generate a sitemap for you based on the details you have provided. Once the process is completed, it will present you with the sitemap details, including the number of pages, a list of broken links, XML file content, and a link to the sitemap file. Then, click “Save As XML File” button to download the sitemap file in the.xml format and adapt your map to your website.
