Sitemaps help search engines find, crawl, and index your online store. It is an XML file that informs search engines which pages are important, how usually it changes when it was updated, and its metadata.
Meetanshi has developed the Magento 2 Google Sitemap extension that generates the XML and HTML sitemaps to make the task of search engines and customers easier.
Why do you need the Magento 2 XML Sitemap extension?
According to Google, an XML sitemap can be useful if:
- The site is very large
- Large archive of content pages that are not properly interlinked
- New site with fewer external links
- A large number of videos and images
Even though the above kind of websites definitely gets benefited by having an XML sitemap, we believe, it's beneficial for all the websites. Allow Google to crawl your site more intelligently with the help of the XML sitemap. Meetanshi's Magento 2 XML sitemap extension auto-generates the XML sitemap for you to relax while the crawlers can crawl your Magento 2 store!
Not only this, but you can also include the images in the sitemap, partition the sitemaps based on the number of URLs and file size, and submit the XML sitemap to robots.txt.
Why do you need the Magento 2 HTML Sitemap extension?
At the time of website creation with fewer links, it's easy to access pages using a single dropdown. But gradually you keep adding multiple products, categories, and pages, it impossible to link each of the pages from somewhere. You require a complete list of every single link of your website to keep the track of it and for the proper navigation facility. By adding an HTML sitemap, you can create an organized system of pages to make the website more usable and easily navigational by visitors. HTML sitemap, in short, is a central blueprint of your entire website.
However, the Magento 2 HTML sitemap extension can help with this by allowing including or excluding web pages in the HTML sitemap:
- Product pages
- Category pages
- CMS pages
- Custom URL
Adding an HTML sitemap link in the footer helps customers to view and understand the structure of a website. The automatically generated HTML sitemap for Magento 2 store will help the customers to navigate through your store quickly.
Be it XML sitemap for search engines or the HTML sitemaps for the customers, the Magento 2 Sitemap extension by Meetanshi offers both and is all set to improve the crawling and hence SERPs as well as the in-store experience of the visitors!
Note: Google does not currently consume the
priority attribute in sitemaps due to which we have excluded that feature from the extension for the sake of simplicity.
