Recent user feedback

Ever so often we like to share some of our user feedback. Here's a few recent comments :

  • Your service is efficient and easy to access for a general webmaster.
  • Thank you for making it soooo easy for me to generate a Sitemap for my website.  I'm a novice when it comes to website creation.  I'm learning to do it all myself.  Google said that it was a great idea for me to give them a sitemap for my website, but I had no idea how to do that.  You made that simple for me to do and I am so very grateful.  Great job!!

  • Liked the simplicity of use and accuracy.

  • XML sitemap generator was fast and super helpful- exactly what I needed.  I got my new website's site maps emailed to me within 24 hours, which was great, and there's no fee , just donations optional.  I'm very grateful for the help, and that XML doesn't automatically charge a fee (I will be donating- the assortment of sitemaps is worth it!)  Thank you! I'm new to website design and couldnt have built a sitemap myself- I appreciate it!

  • Very accurate and an efficient use of my time with the email notification. A great service.

  • Great service that really makes my life as a web master a whole lot easier. I love the variety in options and the fact that I get an email notification whenever my sitemap is done.

  • Correct and complete sitemap generation. Good job.

  • The generator worked perfect and gave also a usefull site error report 

  • Хороший, быстрый, а главное - бесплатный генератор sitemap. Рекомендую!

  • I have a website with about 200 pages which is constantly being updated with new content.  This sitemap generator was fast and accurate.  Great tool for webmasters!

  • This was a great solution for me, since I just started working on the website and have just started learning how to use xml.  Saved me a lot of time.  Definitely worth using and contributing a donation.

  • In contrast to many other "free" service, this one provides a convenient user interface and doesn't seem to have any limitations regarding the number of scanned pages. That's really great, especially for non-commercial projects, that can't afford to pay such a service immediately. Wish there would be more services made with that spirit out there. I will suggest a small donation for this project, all the best for you guys!

If you find our sitemap generator service useful and want to comment or donate please feel free to do so, it's what keeps the service going.

Thanks for all your support!

Our best Wordpress sitemap plugin yet

It's been a while since we updated our sitemap generator plugin for wordpress so we were pleased to be able to announce version 1.3.0 being ready for general release earlier this week.

We've always prided ourselves on being the best Wordpress Sitemap plugin when it comes to flexibility including :
  • Supporting HTML, RSS and Google XML Sitemap formats.
  • Setting defaults individually for Pages, Posts, Archives, Authors, Categories and Tags.
  • Being able to configure settings for individual Pages, Posts, Categories and Tags.

Having listened to what our users have been asking for we have now added to important features by popular demand.

Support for custom posts.

We now give you the same great flexibility for all your custom post types. Whether projects, products, property or something else you get the same ability to configure global defaults and then change settings at the individual page/post level.

This gives you comprehensive control of our sitemap and the ability to tweak your sitemap  SEO (Search engine optimisation) strategy right down to the page level across your entire website, highlighting important pages to search engines.

Customise robots file

Whilst there were other plugins that enabled you to edit your robots.txt file they often overwrote entries produced by other plugins. For example we add your sitemap to your robots.txt file and custom robots.txt plugins typically overwrite this.

So now we have added the ability for you to add custom entries to your robots file via our plugin. It honours everything added by our plugin and other plugins and allows you to insert your own entries.

What's next

We hope you find these new features useful.

Please help support us in whatever way you can whether by sharing , donating or just feeding back, it all helps make our Wordpress sitemap plugin the best sitemap plugin for you our users.

We genuinely want to hear from you and become the best Wordpress Sitemap Plugin for all our users, giving them all the features they need to optimise their Wordpress SEO (Search engine optimisation).

Get the plugin or find out which of our sitemap generator is best for you.

Latest online sitmap updates

Over the last month or so we've been making some tweaks and changes to our sitemap generator website.

New : Upgraded website to Zurb Foundation 6
New : Improved website performance
New : Minor cosmetic / content updates to our website
Fix : Sitemap Image url issue.
Fix : Contact us form issue
Fix : Donate form

New : More reliable email notifications

We also made one of the last changes to our infrastructure separating out the email server to use Microsoft Exchange online. This has improved email delivery and reduced the number of emails being flagged as spam which in turn means you get more reliable notifications when your sitemap is ready.

New : Reintroduced captcha

Whilst the captcha can be frustrating to some people, when we removed it our service became stressed by spam bots submitting requests, tying up resources and impacting performance for real users. So whilst not ideal it is a necessary evil to ensure real users get a better service.
