Add-On Type(s)



The Sitemap Module is an ExpressionEngine add-on that automatically generates a configurable sitemap of your website and notifies search engines about changes in your site. It is meant as an SEO tool for site administrators that use ExpressionEngine.


Sitemaps allow you to inform search engines about pages on your website that are available for crawling. A Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs within your site, as well as additional information about each URL such as when it was last updated, how often its content changes and its priority within the site. The purpose of this is to help search engines to more intelligently crawl your website, with the ultimate aim of improving your pagerank.

How It Works

The Sitemap Module consists of two parts - a module and an extension. The module allows you to select which weblogs to include in the sitemap and to set preferences for each weblog - its change frequency, priority and template. You can also add URLs to the sitemap and set their preferences.

The purpose of the extension is that every time an entry on your site is created or changed using the PUBLISH and EDIT tabs, several search engines are notified that your site content has changed. A Sitemap tab appears that allows you to select whether or not to notify the Google and Bing search engines. It is selected by default if you are creating a new entry.

Great add on - took minutes to create an XML site map. Stupid easy to configure. Will be a default install on every site from now on.

Very nice! At the last second, client wanted an XML sitemap. I give this a try and have a complete sitemap within a few minutes. I couldn’t believe how quickly I got this done. So easy to configure.

The only thing lacking at the time I write this (v2.3.1) is support for Structure/Pages.

I have to agree with all reviewers, here. I’ve tried the rest and this one’s the best -> Easiest to get off the ground running.

This is a must have for all EE websites we build. It is easy to set up and results are seen quite quickly.

This is a really great add-on for Expression Engine. I wish it offered a little better support for the Pages Module, but other than that, it’s a great asset to the EE community. Both the EE1 and EE2 versions have been fantastic!

I had been using Rage Sitemap Automator until I stumbled upon this module. It was simple to install and actually automate the process even more than Rage did. I’m adding it to my ‘must include’ list for EE sites. Nice work.

This module is so easy to install and connect with Google webmaster tools. Ben is very responsive and the documentation is great.

This really is a great module. It simplifies the Sitemap process into a 1-2-3 process that takes about 2 minutes. Thanks for making my life easier!
