While your store design and navigation matter the most to your customers, search crawlers care more about the structure of your website. That’s why the Magento XML sitemap is one of the most important SEO features you have to optimize.
With our Magento 2 XML Sitemap Generator, you don’t have to be an SEO expert or developer to improve SEO. This robust solution generates an XML sitemap dynamically and accurately to meet all search engine requirements. All you need is to set up a few simple settings.
Having a great product description and optimized metadata will help you attract people’s attention in search engines. However, to get your content out there, you have to optimize your XML sitemap for search crawlers first.
Magefan XML Sitemap Extension for Magento allows you to generate XML sitemaps automatically and define the frequency and priority of the indexing. The faster search robots can discover new pages on your store the faster those pages will appear on Google.
If you want new pages to be indexed and ranked as soon as they appear on your websites, you have to make sure your sitemap is crawled frequently. With the Magento 2 XML Sitemap, you can define how often should product, category, CMS, and Magefan Blog Pages be indexed.
However, since you don’t publish all kinds of pages with the same frequency, you can also set a priority for each group of links. This way search crawlers could crawl your product or blog pages more frequently than CMS pages or categories.
Since Google uses your page title and description as part of the image search algorithm, you shouldn’t underestimate the importance of product images on your SEO rankings. So including images in Magento XML Sitemap helps search engine robots understand your page better.
Moreover, if you add relevant image data to your sitemap, it is more likely to appear in the image search results. Help Google and other search engines to determine important images on your website with the robust Magento XML Sitemap Extension.
There is a multitude of pages on your website some of which are just not meant to be in search results. In this case, you can hide some product, category, CMS, or Magefan blog pages from indexing.
Our XML Sitemap Generator for Magento 2 enables you to exclude any pages from the Google XML Sitemap in the search engine optimization section. Ensure only relevant pages drive traffic to your website.
Generate Magento Google XML Sitemap according to Google requirements to make relevant pages appear in search as fast as possible. Define the maximum number of URLs per file and the size of the sitemap/s file to comply with the required guidelines.
Still, there is no limit on the number of links you can submit for indexing. If you have more than 50 000 URLs you can break the list into multiple sitemaps or create a specific index file that will list all of the sitemaps and submit it to Google.
I mainly needed the module to exclude some of our pages from the sitemap and it did it easily. Recommend! thanks
