Sitemap Image not created
« on: July 27, 2011, 05:20:48 PM »

Hi,
I cannot make Image Sitemap and cannot see where and what I do wrong.
Sitemap crawler does not crawls folder /images/ for some reason.
Images Folder is under [external links are visible to admins only]
Product images are in a subfolder [external links are visible to admins only] .
I made following settings :
Create separate Sitemap for Images
Under Image inclusion mask field : images/*
Excluded from Sitemap extensions : jpg jpeg gif tiff png
Do not parse extensions: jpg jpeg gif tiff png
And still could not have Sitemap-Images.xml DONE.
 
thanks

Hello,

you should not modify the "Excluded/not parsed.. extensions" settings, make sure that they are in default state. Also, try to remove "image inclusion mask" first - in this case it will include all images found.

Hi Oleg,
 
Still no luck. Robots.txt allow crawling image folder and Page meta is Index, Follow.
 
Could it be because on product page image div has rel=nofollow before href ?
 
<div id='photo' style='width:210px;'><div id='pozamain'><a target='_blank' rel='nofollow' href='/front/show_photos.php?pid=133' onClick="window.open('/front/show_photos.php?pid=133','newwindow', 'resizable, width=520, height=630 ');return(false);">
<img src='/poze/medii/133.jpg' alt='133' border='0' class='pmari' width='200' height='200'></a>
</div></div>
 
Thanks,

Yes, sitempa generator obeys the rel=nofollow tag and doesn't crawl links tagged with this attribute.

The sitemap gen is not crawling your /images/ folder. it is only reporting the images listed in the pages (HTML/PHP etc) that it crawls. if you want all the picture images listed, they must be 'used' in a page ie. <img src-"your-image.jpg" alt="pic of me" title="pic of me">

Hope this helps.
