Spider settings

In general you can leave the spider settings in their default setting unless you explicitly need to disable a specific feature.

For some websites you may want add other file extensions but we have included the common ones by default.

In some cases you may also want to disable query strings or add new exclusions to the list in particular if your website uses a session ID that is not in the list.

See our quick HTML guide for more details on each of the different url and link types.

Image settings

you can select to include images in your sitemap depending on whther or not they have an alt or title tag. You can also speficy the image types by their extension such as jpg and gif.
