Google Sitemaps Types

With Plone Google Sitemaps product you can enable following Sitemap types on your Plone website. Different Sitemap types index their own content and do not depend on other Sitemaps.

  • Content Sitemap - is a regular list of pages on your website. Creating and submitting such a Sitemap lets Google know about all the pages on your Plone web site, including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google's normal crawling process.
  • Mobile Sitemap - is a specific type of Sitemap, that indexes all site URLs that serve content for mobile devices.
  • News Sitemap - is different from regular Sitemaps, since it is specific to Google News only. It uses the Sitemap protocol, with additional News-specific tags, defined by Google.
