1. Extend Magento XML sitemap features
Native Magento XML sitemap is very simple and doesn’t contain the features you really need for your e-commerce store.
With this extension you’ll be able to:
- Include product, category, CMS pages and tags into the sitemap
- Add any extra links
- Add images to the sitemap and use templates for image titles
2. Follow Google XML sitemaps guidelines
Google has certain guidelines for XML sitemaps. For example, a sitemap file can’t contain more than 50,000 URLs and must be no larger than 50 MB uncompressed. The new Google Sitemap extension allows you to follow these guidelines.
3. Prioritize indexing
XML Google Sitemap extension adds the date of the last page modification so that Google indexes or reindexes pages with recently changed content in the first place.
