Discover how a Sitemap Generator can help you with your search engine ranking. Learn how to use one.
A sitemap is a file which contains the different pages of an Internet site and the route to them through the sections of the site. The webpages can be sorted visually or as plain text and this type of a file is rather useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it much easier for the site visitors to find a specific page they need, so they can navigate your website better and quicker, that in turn will improve their user experience and it will be more likely that they will return to the site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap makes it possible for search engines to index your site content better, particularly if it's updated, so when users are looking for particular content, it's more likely that they will find your Internet site as it will be listed higher in their search results. If your website is not indexed efficiently, it may not show up for some searches, so even in case you have what people need, they will not get to the site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Hosting
The Hepsia Control Panel which we provide with our shared hosting
packages comes with a built-in sitemap generator tool which will permit you to generate a sitemap for every website hosted in the account with just a couple of clicks. The tool features a really intuitive point-and-click interface which comes with several options depending on how detailed you want the sitemap to be. You will be able to select the depth plus the maximum number of links to be listed. If you offer various content on your site, you may also add and remove specific file extensions, which allows certain file types to be included or excluded from your sitemap. A drop-down menu will enable you to pick any domain or subdomain hosted within the account, so the sitemap file will be generated right where it's needed and you will not have to do a thing manually.
SiteMap Generator in Semi-dedicated Servers
Generating a sitemap will take just a couple of clicks if you host your Internet sites in a semi-dedicated server
account from us as we provide an auto generation instrument which will allow you to make a sitemap by using a simple interface. The output file is search engine friendly and it'll be generated within the site folder where you require it. The generator permits you to select how many links to be included in the sitemap and how many levels deep these links should go. As a more advanced feature you can also choose what file types to be present or not by entering custom file extensions or erasing some of the pre-specified ones. That way, you could customize the sitemap and include any custom content that is not part of a standard website like documents. When necessary, you'll be able to make a new sitemap anytime in case you perform a major update on your website.

There are several features that you can customize - the depth of the links the software instrument should follow, the number of links which should be indexed and what file types have to be included. The last option will permit you to concentrate on specific content on your website since you will be able to remove generic website pages and include custom extensions, for instance .pdf and .epub if you offer e-books. The sitemap generator can be used for each of your sites and it will automatically place a search engine friendly XML file in the selected site folder.

This attribute will allow you to emphasize on selected website content that you'd like your visitors to discover easily as an alternative to finding numerous standard web pages.
