To set up a sitemap:
Most Content Management Systems, like WordPress or Joomla, have a built-in sitemap.xml that simply needs to be enabled (or a plug-in installed). If you don’t have this option, PageFreezer provides a free, open-source Python script to generate one for you, the script and documentation can be found at https://github.com/pagefreezer/SitemapGenerator.
To validate a sitemap:
Use this online tool to check your sitemap is valid: http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/validate-xml-sitemap.html.
Your site map must meet certain requirements, listed below:
- Tt needs to be compliant with the sitemap protocol
- •Generate the sitemap with the same frequency that you want to archive.
- The sitemap must contain the <lastmod> tag including date and time information for each URL.
- The sitemap needs to be updated on your site with at least the same frequency as you configure the “Sitemap check frequency” setting in PageFreezer.
