XML Sitemap (formerly Google Sitemap) | drupal.org

XML Sitemap (formerly Google Sitemap) will enable google to see GrassBase’s contents.

The XML Sitemap module creates a XML sitemap in accordance with the Sitemaps.org specification.

The module maintains a short change history for nodes in order to better approximate the change frequency. It calculates the relative priority of each node based on node type, number of comments, and promotion. It can optionally submit your sitemap to Google (support for other search engines will be added once they support the ping interface) whenever it is changed and can log when your sitemap is downloaded by a search engine.

This module was originally written as a part of the Google Summer of Code program.

    I actually haven’t had any issues with this sitemap module and am using it actively on my site at http://www.360matches.com. It works as expected – including great integration with CCK and Views. I would like to have greater control over the change frequency value as I think it gives some pages “daily” which could be a bit misleading to the search engines since those pages don’t change on a daily basis.
