Sitemaps are a great SEO tool. They give you a way to stand up and say, “Hey, search engines! Over here! Check out my site.” And sitemaps are also a great usability tool. They give your visitors a secondary navigation option, not to mention a peek at how your website is structured.
Yep, sitemaps form a near-perfect intersection of SEO and usability. Unfortunately, they’re pretty tedious to put together.. unless you’re using CoffeeCup Sitemapper to automatically generate them.
Sitemapper makes it incredibly easy to create XML and HTML sitemaps. Just enter your website URL, click a button, and then sit back while Sitemapper takes care of all the rest. It’s powered by a similar spider as the ones used by the popular search engines Google, Yandex, and Bing to crawl your website. Not only does it compile a comprehensive sitemap, it also gives you an idea of the “crawlability” of your site.
CoffeeCup Sitemapper is more then just a simple sitemap generator. When Sitemapper is done scanning your website, you can customize the results to fit your specific needs. Set priority and change frequency for your pages and delete certain pages you may not want to include. Sitemapper also gives you control over your HTML sitemap’s appearance, letting you choose from different layouts, adjust page and link colors, and more.
Sitemapper contains all the tools you need to create and manage effective sitemaps. Take uploading, for instance. There’s no need to open a separate program; just click a button, your sitemap is published. Submitting it to search engines is just as easy. We’ve included built-in links to the major search engines, so all you have to do is click your mouse, and you’re on the way to better search engine visibility and more happy customers.
The Theme Designer is made up of a few different components that allow you to control how your sitemap will look. Select your layout, pick a theme and then start customizing. It is that easy!
