Sitemap Generator

Use the Sitemap Generator from the Tools section in order to organize your website and to make sure that all pages are found by search engines. This is particularly important when your website was built using Flash or Java Script menus that do not include HTML links.

There are two ways to create a sitemap:

1. Automatic Site Scan

Click on Start Analysis to scan your website.

Via the arrow in the lower half of the button Start Analysis, you can launch a custom analysis. For this you with the following options:

  • URL: Define a different URL.

  • Scan Depth: Determine the scan depth for the indicated URL.

  • Max. Number of Pages: Limit the number of pages to be analyzed.

  • Default Page: Set the usual homepage, e.g. index.htm.

  • Scan Sub-domains: Determine whether sub-domains shall also be analyzed.

  • Skip URLS/Folders: Exclude certain website addresses and/or folders from the analysis.

  • Clean Session IDs: Deletes temporary session IDs.

  • Check External Links: Determine whether external links – i.e. links to outside, additional contents – shall also be checked.

The analysis’ result will be shown in the main window. It contains information about e.g. URL, title, description, size and importance.

2. Manual Creation

The second possibility to create a sitemap, is to add the links manually. Choose this option if you would like to manually Add Pages or Import the links from a file (XML or TXT).


When there are some links in the list, the following buttons become available in both tabs:

  • Generate: Via this function you will get a sitemap in HTML and XML format. The HTML Site Map tab generates a website "map" in HTML format for human visitors. The Sitemap XML Index tab provides a XML sitemap for the indexing by search engines.

  • Sort: You may change the sort order of the single elements by choosing Ascending or Descending.

  • Save As: Save the sitemap for further use.

  • Customize: Here you can specify the settings of your sitemap.

  • Open in Browser: Shows the analysis’ result in the browser.

  • Default Change Frequency: Select a change frequency in order to set the update rate for the specified URL.

  • Default Priority: Determine the indicated URL's priority in relation to other pages on the same site. This setting can help the Google robots to crawl the website correctly.
