Sitemap output files

G-Mapper has moved to a new home.

www.g-mapper.co.uk

G-Mapper outputs a number of sitemap files. The filenames for these along with the fields to output can be configured in the sitemap configuration wizard.

Google sitemap format

G-Mapper has full support for the Google sitemap protocol.

Google sitemaps include the Url, Modified date, Priority and Frequency

Plain text sitemap

G-Mapper supports a plain text sitemap format compatible with Yahoo.

This format outputs one url per line.

RSS sitemaps

Yahoo also supports RSS sitemaps which are similar in content to Google Maps.

G-Mapper uses attributes from the RSS 2.0 specification relevant to sitemaps and podcasting.

RSS sitemaps include Url, Modified date, Title, Description and Author.

Where the file is a video or audio file it also specifies the media format and file size making the RSS sitemap suitable for podcasts.

RSS podcasts

The RSS Podcast file is identical to the RSS sitemap file except it only lists Audio and Video media files making it ideal for adding Podcasts to your website.

Atom sitemap

G-Mapper offers the same level of support for Atom maps that it does for RSS sitemaps however it does not include the addition media file information.

The modified date is mandatory for Atom maps. If you choose not to output the modified date for your sitemaps the Atom sitemap will automatically include the file modified date.

ROR RDF sitemap

ROR (Resources of a Resource) is an independent XML sitemap format for describing any content in your website.

G-Mapper ROR RDF sitemaps contain the page title, url, date modified and update frequency attributes.

You can find out more about ROR sitemaps at the official ROR website.
