New Online XML Sitemap Generator v2.0.1 While we have been quiet in 2023, we have been very busy preparing to relaunch and upgrading our services. You can find an overview of the changes we’ve made and upcoming in our previous blog. Overview Our biggest undertaking the last year has been re-platforming moving our full stack away from Microsoft. We’ve seen some significant performance gains doing this, and have improved the code base to make it easier to share reuse and importantly add new features in the future.

We’ve undergone what is an enormous amount of work restructuting and replatforming the business to enable us to move forward on a more stable, maintainable and scalable platform.

Overdue online update We’ve been working on an update for some time to address some bugs and performance issues since our last release. This lead to some pretty big rabbit holes and major reworks of code and re-architecting how we use Microsoft Azure infrastructure, which has consumed many evenings and weekends, but finally there is light at the end of the tunnel. Most of the changes in this release were technical under the hood issues that many users wont appreciate although the service is running more smoothly and faster, not withstanding their may be teething issues as we migrate users on to the new release.

Key sitemap generator changes We’ve been making a number of changes to our online sitemap generator. Some of these will filter down to G-Mapper over the coming weeks. It’s important to understand these recent changes as they impact how we spider your website. Hosting updates We recently completed a migration to new hosting within Microsoft Azure to simplify management and deployment of services. We hope that this will reduce down time and deployment errors as well as allow us to scale more easily.

Become a contributor and get extra benefits We provide all our sitemap services for free and for the love of it, but running this service on advertising revenue and donations is difficult as they are unpredictable and in recent times they have not covered our costs. In May 2018 new European Union Data Protection regulation had a significant impact and with recent world events we now find ourselves under significant financial pressure.

Upcoming service changes Over the last few months we have bee looking at the sustainability of our various sitemap solutions. Since the introduction of new EU Data Protection legislation in 2018 our ability to generate revenue through advertising has become limited.With dwindling advertising revenue from current streams and limited donations we are increasingly finding ourselves reaching in to our own pockets to fund the service. We have been looking at options to allow the continued running and maintenance of the services as well as ways to invest in a number of key areas such as infrastructure, developer tooling, support materials as well as new services.

What has been happening? First of all we’re sorry we’ve been quiet for a while. The service is very much run on a volunteer basis and some sometimes other priorities take over. We rely on the support of our community and advertising revenue which of late has decreased due to stricter rules on the use of personal data. We thank you for your continued support. What’s new? We’ve updates our WordPress plugin having tested it for the most recent version of wordpress as well as publish a new version 1.

What’s been happening in 2018. Firstly an apology. Due to other commitments, maintenance and updates have been slow across the board and with recent increases in demand the service has struggled without ongoing maintenance. We are now making the first of a number of incremental updates to move our service to an improved and more scalable (and hopefully lower cost) approach using serverless computer. We’ve also updated the website terms and privacy statement to better align with new EU data protection requirements although in general we do not process personal data other than your email address for the purposes of operating the service and with your express permission.
