XML Sitemap

The XML Sitemap Assistant of the WebsiteAnalyser allows you to create a XML Sitemap from the analysis database URLs using the WebsiteAnalyser. You will find the XML Sitemap Assistant quickly and easily in the menu tab Extras ⇒ Sitemaps of the WebsiteAnalyser. Creating a XML Sitemap is described in detail below.

Menu-Tab Extras ⇒ Sitemaps of the WebsiteAnalyser

After launching the XML Sitemap Assistant of the WebsiteAnalyser by clicking on the "XML Sitemap" button in the Extras ⇒ Sitemaps menu tab, a new window opens and you are on the "Sitemap settings" page of Sitemap Assistant. This is the direct entry into the XML Sitemap Assistant and bypasses the selection of the sitemap type as well as the welcome page. In this view, you can select the MIME Types of the URLs you want to include in the URL list, and you can make various other settings for the XML Sitemap. For example, if you select the MIME Type "image/jpeg", all image files in JPEG format will be included in the sitemap. By default, all MIME Types are selected. Once you have made your selection, click on the "Next" button to continue.
