June 18th, 2015Move to HTTPS
FreeSitemapGenerator is always looking for ways to
improve our own and your rankings. Lately we
have received multiple reports that state we
should move our site to HTTPS. According to
Google HTTPS will be used as a minor ranking
For now it's only a very lightweight
signal affecting fewer than 1% of
global queries, and carrying less
weight than other signals such as
high-quality content while we give
webmasters time to switch to HTTPS.
But over time, we may decide to
strengthen it, because we.d like to
encourage all website owners to switch
from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone
safe on the web.
from: googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/ 2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal.html
We are now gathering metrics of
freesitemapgenerator.com and will move to
HTTPS later this month. We will report back
to you with updated metrics and see if it is
worth to move to HTTPS. If you have moved a
site to HTTPS and want to share the results
with us and/or the entire FreeSitemapGenerator.com community get in
FreeSitemapGenerator can create sitemaps for
HTTPS websites since 2014.
June 1st, 2015Video Sitemaps
FreeSitemapGenerator supports video sitemaps.
If your website contains videos hosted by
youtube.com or vimeo.com we will find them and
put them in your sitemap.
Check our example
sitemap to see thie <video:video> tag.

See the Google
Video Sitemap page for more details. This
new feature is enabled by default.
February 10th, 2015New Look For Free Sitemap Generator
It was time to get a new look. What do you think? Feedback is always appreciated!
You can see our 'old' look and feel in the previous news item...
October 10th, 2014Screenshots of your website
If you have a lot of websites listed in your control panel, it can be hard to find the website you want to
update or check. We have added screenshots in the left column of all your websites.
We think it is cool. Let us know what you think.
June 1st, 2014HTTPS support
This service is now also available for https websites. Let us know if you encounter any problems. You can use
free sitemap generator to generate a sitemap.xml for your https website.
October 6th, 2010PDF files in your sitemap.xml
Freesitemapgenerator.com user Bruce suggested to us to include PDF files
in our generated sitemaps. We did some research and found that Google says all
valid URLs you want to be spidered should be listed in your sitemap.xml. So we went to
work and added new filters to our crawler: it now will add PDF files it finds on
your site automatically to your sitemap.xml. You do not have to change any settings in
the control panel to activate this feature.
October 2nd, 2010Sitemap vs No sitemap - the ultimate test - PART 2
Last month we posted an article on a generated sitemap
for a very large site (125,000 pages per subdomain),
Now a month (almost) has passed, and we are ready to publish the first
See the image with the number of indexed pages per subdomain.
In words: the two top lines are the two subdomains for which
we created and submitted a sitemap. Indexing was fast, within a
week a total of 35,000 pages were in Google's index. For the English subdomain,
which is 'www
' (3rd line) it took a week longer to get indexed and it
seems to take more time to get the pages crawled. It now has passed the 5000
line, while the two subdomains are declining. The other lines at the bottom are
the subdomains we did not submit a sitemap for. With just one site tested,
for a very short period, we do not want to give you any hard conclusions,
but our opinion still is: a sitemap helps getting your site indexed.
The fancy graph was generated by Microsoft Excel :-)
