Forumotion Sitemap Generator!

Post by Guest on September 2nd 2010, 11:21 pm

What is a sitemap you ask?
A sitemap is a list of URLs for your forum that is presented to search engines such as Google which allows your site to be indexed into the search engine, creating more traffic to your site.

I think forumotion should create an Online Sitemap Generator that works exactly like the FREE sitemap generator on this website: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

The only problem with that site is, it only generates a max of 500 URLs and the unlimited ($20) version involves FTP and files that we don't even have access to on our forums. Sitemaps are essential for getting traffic to your site. Therefore I think forumotion should create a free or purchasable (using credits) forumotion sitemap generator that will automatically generate a TXT file for us to make a sitemap of every URL on your forum to launch into google, yahoo, bing, etc..

Performing this method, for those who don't already know, is completely optional(obviously).
What do you all think of this? Please give your feedback.

450+ views and no comments on this? I would of thought everyone would be
all over this idea.. I mean really.. who doesn't want an option to have more traffic entering
their site? o_O

I would assume the ones who voted 'no' don't even know what this is. Maybe I didn't explain it well enough?

My understanding is you have to upload the sitemap to your forum first, then you add your sitemap URL XML file location to google and bing so they can find it. The problem is you can't upload sitemaps to the forums that I'm aware of. Sure you can add a sitemap to google webmaster tools but if google can't find your XML file on your forum it doesn't do any good.

I vote yes on this, anything to get sitemaps working for the forums I'm all for.

Ok I understand now, I just added my site map to google webmaster tools.

What you do is add this text: sitemap.xml to your forum account in the "Add sitemap" part. Your forum URL will already be there when you click the "Add Sitemap" button and a box will appear, just add sitemap.xml in the box and test it first if you want, then when it finds no errors repeat the process and this time "Save" it.

It saved over 7,000 URL's of my forum so this poll's generator is not needed, you already have a sitemap, and it has all your URL's. Smile

My point was you don't need it! It would do nothing! It already exists. Members forums already HAS a sitemap with ALL the URL's. This poll is not valid because it is useless because everyones forum already has a sitemap with all the URLs! What would it generate that already hasn't been done? Its done already all you do is add it to google.
