As with most things Sitemap Generators come in a range of flavors from simple online generators to more complex server side scripts. This article provides a quick overview of the type of sitemap generators and some of the things to look out for.

Some key questions when to think about when choosing your sitemap generator :

  • What type of sitemap do you need to generate. e.g. HTML, XML, RSS, etc?
  • How many sites will you need to manage?
  • How often do you need to update thee sites?
  • What capabilities does your website server have. e.g. can you run scripts or upload files?
  • How much control do you need over your sitemap content?
  • Do you need to update it manually and maintain change

If you need a quick and easy sitemap the online sitemap generator is probably the best starting point for you. It is ideal if you don't need to do much editing and have less than 2000 pages, but maybe you want to save some general settings so you can refresh it in the future.
