It works fine, but what about urllist.txt ?
« on: November 09, 2008, 09:49:17 AM »
Dear people,

Yesterday I have set up Sitemap Generator.
Now, that was easy to do!
It already completed some paths for me.

Now I have 2 questions:
1. When I still made my sitemap files manually, I also put the urllist.txt file in the public root of my site.
Sitemap Generator puts this in a folder inside the generator map.
How can I change this, that is, if it would be useful to put the file in my public root, anyway...

2. Can I just let Generator ping Google?
I had, and still have, problems with Google, like a filter and a penalty. I would like to not disturb them any further for the time being...
 :D
What would be wise to do? I thought once Google has discovered your sitemap.xml, it will return anyway.

My compliments for the program. It works like a charm!

Best regards,
Robert

Hello,

1. you can change the filename and URL for urllist.txt manually in config.inc.php file:
Code: [Select]
    'xs_sm_text_filename' => '',
    'xs_sm_text_url' => '',

2. That's not an issue to keep ping enabled. Google should re-visit your sitemap anyway, but "ping" let's them know that sitemap has been updated immediately, so it might be downloaded by googlebot faster. Make sure that you submitted sitemap in google webmaster account as well to track it's state:
