πŸ“Œ Minor updates and fixes applied

Sunday 20 December 2015

Minor updates and fixes applied We’ve made some minor updates to our spider for the online and windows version of our sitemap generator. Binary files Binary files such as Word Document, Adobe PDF, etc. previously just showed the HTTP server response such as “Ok”. We now simply show the filename of such files. Domain names We have relaxed validation on domain names so it is not essential to use punycode. You can therefore decide which domain name you want to use for your sitemap.

πŸ“Œ How we use your email address

Monday 2 February 2015

How we use your email address We occasionally get questions about how we use your email address. We do already spell this out in our EULA (End User Licence Agreement), however as with a lot of similar documents people don’t always read them and blindly click accept. We thought we would write a brief article to highlight this particular area. Most users will only receive 2 or maybe 3 emails over a number of days as they go through the process of creating a sitemap, downloading it and then finally reviewing our service.
