Google Sitemaps is an easy way for you to help improve your site’s representation in the Google index. It's a collaborative crawling system that enables you to communicate directly with Google. You get a smarter crawl because you can provide Google with specific information about all your web pages, such as when a page was last modified or how frequently it changes.
Fully compatible with:
- vBulletin 3.0.x, 3.5.x, 3.6.x and 3.7.x
- vBulletin Blogs 1.0.x *Optional
- vbseo 2.x, 3.x *Optional
What does it do?
- Auto-generates a Google XML sitemap for all of your specified forum URL types (including vBulletin Blog URLs).
- Auto-generates a Yahoo text sitemap for all of your specified forum URL types.
- Auto-notifies Google when a new sitemap is generated.
- Automatically sends you a summary of the sitemap generation via email each time it is created.
- Includes only publicly accessible forums and threads.
- Allows Google/Yahoo to find all of your forum URLs without having to spider the forum to find the links.
- Allows Google/Yahoo to find your forum URLs without having to account for query string and/or session ID information.
- Allows Google to give precedence to crawling your higher priority forum pages.
- Allows Google to give precedence to crawling your forum pages that change more frequently.
- Allows you to conserve bandwidth by more efficiently facilitating the crawling processes for GoogleBot and Yahoo Slurp.
- Is 100% compatible with the static CRUs (Content Relevant URLs) used by vbseo-enabled forums.
How does it work?
Whenever it is scheduled or invoked via the URL, this plugin will generate both the Google XML formatted and the Yahoo text formatted sitemaps. If you selected "Yes" to the Google auto-notification setting, Google will be notified each time the sitemap is generated. The Yahoo sitemap must be manually submitted to http://submit.search.yahoo.com/free/request/.
- Google Sitemap files are gzipped
- Forum and thread pages are listed with pagination (i.e. all pages for each forums/thread are included in the sitemap)
- Maximum Priority is set for Sticky threads.
- Optimization for sitemap generation on large forums.
Automated Reporting Tool
The vbseo Sitemap includes a report tool, allowing you to track your progress. To access your reports enter the following URL:
NOTE: Replace "http://www.example.com/forums/" with the full URL to your vB forum root.
You will be required to login by providing your "Sitemap Interface Access Password" from your vbseo Sitemap settings in:
- vBulletin Admin CP (for 3.5.x/3.6.x/3.7.x users) OR
