There are many components now for Joomla that do XML sitemaps, you also might want to consider doing a Video site map if you have video and also having an RSS feed for all content. Also there are accompanying tags that you can use in your head that specify the where-abouts of each of these items.

One last thing, many of the search engines now support auto-discovery of sitemaps if you add it to your robots.txt.

Good luck

I use Xmap too. It is unbeatable.

I use the sitemap link for Search Engine that it generate and submit to Google through Good Webmaster Tool.

Additionally, I use the Free online Sitemap Builder below to generate my sitemap.xml file that I also submit to Google using the same Google Webmaster Tool.

The Free online Sitemap Builder can be found here

www.sitemapbuilder.net

Note: They also have a Windows Version (FREEWARE) that can be downloaded and installed on your Computer. Excellent piece of software!

Hi...

If you're using XMap, make sure you check the Additional XMap extensions, because there is available a lot of plugins for the most popular components

XMap extensions >>> http://extensions.joomla.org/extensions ... extensions

A sitemap is a collection of hyperlinks that outlines and defines the website's overall structure.Generating a manual sitemap is not even an option for medium to large websites. There are many free online sitemap generators, but most of them limit the number of urls parsed to a small number, which is really not useful.

Joomla.org the Sitemap Go to the section. Download one of these components: Joomap, XMap or SEF Service Map. They are all good solutions. We have to focus on how XMap. Your admininstrator area, go to Extensions> Install / Uninstall and Install Xmap Joomla installer through. Components for the>> XMap go.

I ever use this (online sitemap generators), it's good tool but have limit the number of urls. So if you have a large website (URL / content), you must pay.

I think the easy and simple way is use extension, personally I use XMap

xml-sitemaps.com is quite useless for Joomla websites because it generates tons of unwanted URLs in the sitemap.xml file.
Instead you may look at this one (http://www.web-site-map.com/joomla-sitemap.php). In addition its free page limit is pretty high.

Yes, you could try XMAP but you need extension for your installed components, if you dont have, the xmap wont generate your component content

No issue.. U can simply create the Xml sitemap for the website from the XML sitemap creater (search in google),. and then upload the file in your website's webmaster tool.

I am wondering how important the priority is, and whether it impacts one's SEO if one has multiple xmlmaps in robots.txt with the same URLs?

I too have been very happy with xmap, and I was sad to see it is no longer being supported or distributed. I was going to make a plugin for it this year.

Xmap is dead.
Is there another good extension that can replace it? Or another solution that can create and automatically update a sitemap for Google?

OSMap is a good alternative.

Has anyone else run into an issue with larger sitemaps?

Currently, I have 800+ articles in a category with a menu item linked to it, BUT osMAP only generates maybe half (350) urls.

is this an issue/limit with the generator? or is it a joomla limit?

any help would be appreciated

Hi x126

The Joomlashack team is able to help.

We didn't you contact us before leaving such a negative review on the JED? Mistaken reviews like that make it difficult to support free extensions and encourage more developers to go commercial-only.

Right there on the OSMap page, in big letters, it says ...
"Please, please, please, PLEASE CONTACT OUR SUPPORT.

PLEASE READ BEFORE REVIEWING
If you have problems with OSMap, please contact our support and read the documentation before leaving a review."
We can't monitor all the posts in the Joomla forums. Contact us!

Login to the Admin Dashboard for Joomla 3.
In the main menu, click Components, then Xmap.
Click the New button.
On the next screen, enter a name for sitemap in the Title field, and change the Status to Published. Make sure the Access setting is set to Public.
Select the Menus tab. Click the check box next to the menus you want included in the sitemap.
The other fields are not required, click the Save button when you are finished. You will then see a message stating "Item successfully saved."
