Free Sitemap Generator
Our tool creates a sitemap as defined by Google™ for your site. Enter
the url of your website(s), let our tools generate a sitemap for you and
download the compressed sitemap later. Don't forget to submit the sitemap to
Google™. We spider your entire site (up to 5,000 pages) to
make sure all links/pages are included in the sitemap.
Sitemaps generated: 495,396
(we spidered 1,086,107,000+ pages)
How does it work?

and add your first website.
Just enter the homepage url of your website.
Whenever you want to generate an xml sitemap
press the make sitemap
button on the control panel page.
Our spiders will, just like a Search Engine spider, crawl your website
finding all links. When it is done spidering your website you will receive
You can then download the sitemap (zip file) from this site and upload it to
your own website. Don't forget to submit
your sitemap to Google
. You can even let us upload the new sitemap directly to your website automatically!
And we can even ping Google™ and Bing™
to let them
know you have a new sitemap ready.
At this time we cannot spider more than 5,000
URLs per site.

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 :-)
September 5th, 2010Sitemap vs No sitemap - the ultimate test - PART 1
We have received a couple of (10+) e-mails over the last few months from (potential)
users of freesitemapgenerator.com
with more or less the same question: Should I create a
sitemap for my site? Google says you should - so you
should, see our links
but do sitemaps actually work? A year ago we posted a
message on this page with some nice graphics of howmany
pages were indexed by google before and after
submitting a sitemap but now we are ready for a real double
For a customer we created a program to generate
a sitemap for their database driven travel site. Each
subdomain contains more or less the same information but in
another language and has 125,000 unique urls
subdomains are linked only from the English homepage and
will not be promoted on their own. Our educated guess is
that all subdomains will have about the same number of
pages indexed by Yahoo!, Google and Bing. For two of the
subdomains we did not submit the sitemap and did not upload
it to the webserver. They just don't exist and all the
spiders should try to figure out themselves all the
possible urls. Now we wait. In about a month we will report
the number of indexed pages for these subdomains. We don't take
(and yes, our client knows about this test - we will add the last two sitemaps when this test is concluded)

October 8th, 2009Freesitemapgenerator does not understand IDN (yet)
We have added an IDN to Punycode converter
. If you
want to add a site to freesitemapgenerator.com with an international domain name like 'löl.org' you can
use this page to convert it to punycode ('xn--ll-fka.org'). We will add this convertor to the add-url-form as
soon as possible so you can add International Domain Names without having to convert them manually.
