This service maps websites for free


A key element in the success of any website is getting it recognized by Google and other search engines. That's why an entire industry has blossomed around the concept of SEO: Search Engine Optimization. 

Most search services offer a submission process so the people behind new websites can announce their arrival to the online world. 

But for any chance of success, websites need to submit more than just their home page. Google and the other lords of search recommend submitting a full roadmap pointing to every page on the site.

Building a full sitemap sounds like a lot of work, and it can be. I built several sitemaps by hand back in the early days of the World Wide Web and I would never want to do that again. Today, I wouldn't have to because there's an online service that will create one for free.

At XML Sitemap Generator, site managers can fill out a simple form and get a full sitemap in a few hours or even minutes, depending on the size of the site. The free service includes a sitemap of up to 200 pages in XML, HTML or RSS format. The formats are compatible with major search engines including Google, Bing, Baidu, Yandex and others.   

For larger websites, customers can make a small donation or purchase a Windows download or a WordPress plugin.

For a closer look at the services, visit the XML Sitemap Generator website. You can also check out the service's Facebook page and @createsitemaps on Twitter.
