Overview

XML Sitemap FREE by Activo

Improve your SEO results by providing more accurate update information in your XML Sitemap!

The XML Sitemap functionality in Magento (aka Google Sitemap) is a pretty powerful tool to get your store properly indexed by major search engines.

However by default Magento generates the sitemap that has last modification date for every single product in your store set to the date when you generate the sitemap. This is a major drag on your web site as Google (or other search engines) do not know which products are new ones, and which are old ones. So they have to re-scan your entire web site to get the products indexed. The unwanted side effect of this is that it takes up to two weeks to have your new products to appear on Google.

The FREE XML Sitemap Magento Extension by Activo replaces the default Magento sitemap functionality, but includes the attribute with the date when each product and category was last updated.

This helps Google, Bing and other search engines to know which products are new to index them first. As a result of this your new products will appear in search MUCH FASTER!

This is a must have for any serious store owner and it is FREE!

Highlights

  • Improves Magento default XML Sitemap functionality.
  • Sets last modified date (lastmod) paramater for each page to the date the product was last updated.
  • Shortens the time your new products appear at Google, Bing and other search engines.
  • 100% FREE and open source!

Unable to generate sitemap error fix?

I just installed it, but when I go to catalog -> Google Sitemap and go to add and then generate it says it is unable to generate sitemap. Any ideas?

Does of a splitting into separate files? Google, for example, restricts the number of links in a file to 50000.

LastMod date for products is 1970-01-01

Hello! Very usefull extension, thank you! But for all products the LastMod date is set to 1970-01-01. Why it is? LastMod for categories is correct (2013-01-12, 2013-02-15 and so on). Thak you in advance!
Asked by: smak
This happens if you import your products in mass either with Magento’s import/export or some 3rd party extension. To verify this is the case, simply edit a product and save it. This should update it’s last mod date. Then regenerate the sitemap.xml file and see if you can find the product with an updated last mod.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Essa Extensão é Perfeita. Esta Extensão é perfeita, porém têm um erro. Ao instalar o arquivo referente a ativação do módulo está com erro. Quando instalei, o arquivo Activo_Xmlsitemap.xml é criado como pasta, o que atrapalha a extensão a funcionar corretamente.Desenvolvedores por favor corrigam isso. De qualquer forma a extensão é perfeita, e após corrigirmos isso, a extensão funcionou corretamente. Obrigado.

Rated out of 5 by from Simple to install via Magento Connect, and works as advertised (CE 1.7.0.2). Excellent. NB: you must refresh your sitemap.xml (either manually or via cron) before you'll see the correct dates.
