📌 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.

📌 Minor update to the 2000 page limit

Thursday 11 September 2014

Minor update to the 2000 page limit A short time ago we increased the sitemap page limit from 1000 to 2000. This limit applies to the number of pages in a sitemap. In larger websites we sometimes find they have many errors in some cases 10,000s of links with errors e.g. a 404 not found.. In these cases our spider was often crawling 10'000s of pages before it hit the 2000 sitemap page limit.

📌 New gTLD support and URL limit increased

Monday 1 September 2014

New gTLD support and URL limit increased We’ve updated the domain validation to allow for new gTLDs (generic Top Level Domains) which are longer than the more traditional ones.So whether you are a .com or a .photography you can use the sitemap generator. As well as this we have increased the sitemap url limit from 1000 to 2000 to cater for larger websites.
