Site Map Generator

Use the Site Map Generator from the Tools section to organize your website and make sure that all pages can be found by search engines. It is especially important if your site contains Macromedia flash or Java Script menus that do not include HTML links.

To create a sitemap proceed as follows:

  1. Click Start Analysis to start the reading process. The amount of time needed depends on the complexity of your site and the speed of your connection. Click the lower half of the Start Analysis button to do a custom scan. In the Custom Scan dialog, you can select a Scan Depth to determine to which level ASEOPS is going to follow links on your site and increase/decrease the number of Threads to increase/decrease the query speed. In addition, you can skip certain pages, folders and session IDs

  2. Press the Manual Creation button if you want to add or delete URLs, Files, or lists of files manually.

The scanning results contain page parameters, i.e. URL, title, description, size, priority etc.

Click Generate to obtain the site map in HTML and XML format.

The HTML Site Map tab generates a website "map" in HTML format for human visitors. Click Customize to adapt it according to your wishes.

You have the possibility to preview the result in the browser and save it. In addition, you can fix a sort order of the elements, which can either be default, ascending or descending.

An XML site map for the indexsing by search engines is provided on the Sitemap XML Index tab. Select a Change Frequency to set the update rate for the specified URL. Determine the Priority of the URL relative to other pages on the same site. These settings can help the Google robots to crawl the website correctly.

Save the results as a site map index file with Save as for further use.
