    Sitemap Generator Tool?
    Hi All,

    I am looking for a good xml sitemap generator tool. Any good one out there? I am in a shared hosting so I can't install any tools on the server.

    Thank you in advanced.

    I use GSiteCrawler. It's free and works great.

    I used to use it but had problems with large sites and the developer abandoned it. I use A1 Sitemap Generator now and it sells for $59 I believe. Like it a lot.

    I use Cusimano's Sitemap generator. It works great on html sites and has a nice price. (but you do need to have a cgi-bin).

    are you using some kind of cms on the site or is it a static site?
    Most of the CMS/blog tools have plugins for sitemap
    and If its a static and small site I will recommend gsitecrawler

    Hmm, how large is the site that you are talking about? It could become a problem if my sites grow larger later on...So far it works for my sites.

    If your gonna use gsitecrawler for a large site --

    Your gonna have to use the SQL Verison / not the access database on ..


    Still free to use --

    Download SQL Lite - install the tables and use the config @ gsitecrawler ..

    -----

    I have used this to crawler over 1 million + pages .. takes a long time to do that but it works!

    Thank you all for your replies.

    I have a php site and I have around 5000 pages. it's dynamic site so I can't use tools that are for html site only.

    I am looking at the tools you all have provided and will let you know what I find.

    Thank you again.

    I got the gsitecrawler installed. It gives me the site map for google. It's not a standard stemap from sitemap.org instead it's looks like google specific. Could I use that sitemap for yahoo and bing?

    That is correct but that url list does not have any date or priority. Does yahoo really wants just a list?

    I guess the question is can I use it with bing?

    All,

    I got an issue, when the site map is created it puts following line. And because of that I get an error when I try to see the xml file. But if I remove that line everything works fine.

    <?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="gss.xsl"?>

    This is not a big issue as I can remove it manually. But I rather do it automatically with the ftp.

    Any Ideas?

    if you were working on a very large site you'd probably be making several (i.e. sitemap 4, 5, etc) sitemaps of 40K urls each. you wouldn't be able to tell yahoo and maybe bing about them all. in that case you'd have to give them the one big uncompressed text file.

    This is why you guys need to use DJANGO:

    http://www.djangoproject.com/

    Comes with it's own sitemap generator!

    I use godaddy and I can generate AND submit sitemaps right there. As a matter of fact, I'm doing it over my Sunday morning coffee. For some reason, I feel that if I'm going to submit anything to the all powerful Googlebot, I should do it on Sunday...maybe the beast isn't as busy today, and maybe he looks forward to my visits ;-)
