Link to Mod (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3393)

SEO Sitemap mod adds an extra action to your SMF installation: ?action=kitsitemap
Its optimized for bots, so that faster indexing of your site is possible.
Also there is a xml sitemap integrated for use in google webmaster tools.
The mod uses the smf 2.0 hook-system, so no file-modifications are necessary

XML Sitemap allows the webmaster to inform Search engines about URL on a website that are available for crawling.

I am also getting an error from Google Webmaster when trying to submit mkress SEO sitemap.  The error message:

"We encountered an error while trying to acess your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit."  (See screenshot 1)

It says the URL is restricted by robots.txt but I'd prefer not to delete my robots.txt file since it protects my folders.  How do I fix this? 
 
Title: Re: SEO sitemap and XML sitemap
Post by: mkress on June 23, 2012, 07:44:05 AM
@xmam68
that is not my sitemap mod you are using, my mod is called "kitsitemap" in url


@pols1337
robots.txt tells search engines to index OR to not index your site. (hast nothing to do with security).
It does not make sense to disallow google to index your site and on the other side submit your site in google webmaster tools via sitemap.
If you post the content of your robots.txt here I can tell you what's wrong...
but looks like your side is not present in google, regarding this error message
Title: Re: SEO sitemap and XML sitemap
Post by: mkress on June 23, 2012, 07:46:57 AM
@all others having problems


have you really submitted this link .../index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml  to google webmaster tools (the ";xml" is the important part)?
if so please tell me links to your domains so I can check it (there are often compatibility issues with portal mods)

Hey mkress,

This worked great for me until I updated to 2.2 and now I am receiving this error in webmaster tools. "Sitemap contains urls which are blocked by robots.txt." My robot.txts are set wide open to allow and I tried downgrading to 2.1 but that didn't seem to help. Any ideas?

Post by: pols1337 on June 27, 2012, 05:37:17 PM
@mkress

Thank you for updating your Sitemap modification.  It now works with Google webmaster tools.  If I can make another suggestion, perhaps you should write in your instructions for users that they should submit the XML version to Google Webmaster tools.  I think that would help alleviate a lot of the confusion in this help board  ;)

Hope xml sitemap shows only boards, what about topic on xml sitemaps ?

Once i have submitted it to google. Found each board xml in-turns list there topics perfectly.

But our old sitemap mod used to list maximum only to 50,000 urls. Google also warned me to list multiple pages of 50,000 each and rejected my old sitemap.

Great work admin. I noticed a sitemap in your blog. Do you have blog sitemap plugins also. And could you share that with us for our blogs.

Why you load categories (getBoardIndex) for each HTTP-request? In case hidden links too. For example, action=help.
And...  why it in the themes hook???

Hi,

The format of an XML sitemap is as follows:

Quote
<url>
<loc>http://abc.com/xyz/</loc>
<lastmod>2012-07-17T13:45:45+00:00</lastmod>
<changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
<priority>0.9</priority>
</url>

I am not 100% sure, but I think your sitemap is HTML sitemap, not XML.

I take my words back :( Sorry  :-\

The MOD definitely creates a XML sitemap. All we need to enter ;xml to view the xml sitemap for any particular board:

I need your help with following:

I am using Pretty URLs (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=636) Mod and my normal sitemap ( http://examdunia.com/index.php?action=kitsitemap ) have links which Pretty URLs set for my Boards and Topics. But, the XML Sitemap ( http://examdunia.com/index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml ) have default SMF URLs, instead of Pretty URLs!!!

Is it possible to have Pretty URLs in the XML Sitemap as well, for all boards?

Hi,

First of all thanks for the mod. It seems very useful.

I have the same problem like everyone. Google does'nt understand XML.

I added to google like: .../index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml
google says OK but it shows this:
(This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
(<sitemapindex xmlns="....sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">)
<sitemap>
<loc>
(livingist.com/index.php?board=3.0&action=kitsitemap;xml)
</loc>
</sitemap>
<sitemap>
<loc>
(livingist.com/index.php?board=2.0&action=kitsitemap;xml)
</loc>
</sitemap>
</sitemapindex>

Also I linked them from htaccess like;
#Sitemap .XML
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule ^sitemap.xml$ ./index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml [L,QSA]

Btw, should I correct my robots.txt from sitemap.xml to /index.php?action=kitsitemap

Waiting your comments.
Thanks,

your sitemap is located here
you used mod rewrite rules
so that your sitemap address changes to
http://www.livingist.com/sitemap.xml
but it is not showing xml sitemap at that address http://www.livingist.com/sitemap.xml

version 2.1.1 should now work with simpleportal  http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3393 (http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3393)

pls ,update(delete sitemap 1 2 3 4 5 6 7...) in version

how to hide sitemap 1 2 3 4 5 ....in footer ?


Im still having issues with this, I unclicked the show footer option in admin, i hit save, now i logged out cause i know admins can still see it, but as a guest i could still see it,

I would really like to make the " sitemap 1234567 " go away, Can I manually uncode it and remove it, and if so how would i do that , im using this mod with a direct menu link to help people on cell phones index the site faster, so the footer link is just extra fluff id like to make go away

thanks, excellent mod!

smf 2.0.3  default theme curve simple portal 2.3.5

  Installed this mod successfuly. 

No problem with google when  sitemap  entered as :  m y s i t e.com//index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml

But problem with the Yandex :

characterset  in error. should begin with :  <? xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8">

I know you didnt mention yandex at all, but can you shed some light on this ? Maybe adding this line will help to others as well

Hello,

thank you for this mod!

I installed successfully on SMF 2.0.4 with EzPortal.

But the XML sitemap has links in the following format:
http://www...../index.php?board=2.0&action=kitsitemap;xml

So &action=kitsitemap;xml gets appended to all links.

When I try to open such a link in the browser, I get an empty page.

Is this behaviour desired?

Also, the sitemap link doesn't show up in the footer.

Only if I choose in Admin: "Sitemap 1,2,3..."

If I choose "Sitemap", nothing gets displayed in the footer.

Please help to resolve. Thank you.

Cheers
gerhard

Think this is where I need to post.

How can I set the settings on here? I don't see a link for it.

The sitemap on the bottom of the page looks somewhat funky with 15 hyperlinks?

Hi all,

My error log is being filled with
Code: [Select]
http://gamestickers.net/index.php?board=12.0&amp;action=kitsitemap;xml
Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message
8: Undefined index: ID_TOPIC
Apply Filter: Only show the errors from this file File: /web/htdocs2/gamestickersnet/home/www/Sources/Subs-KitSitemap.php
Line: 80 or Line: 79

The line corresponds to:
Code: [Select]
while($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($query))
77: {
78: // fill topic array
==>79: $context['topics'][$row['ID_TOPIC']] = $row;
==>80: $context['topics'][$row['ID_TOPIC']]['href'] = $scripturl.'?topic='.$row['ID_TOPIC'].'.0';
81: }


Any advise please?

Modification to export all URL's

In /Sources/Subs-KitSitemap.php Line 52 - 82 replace:
Code: [Select]
// list board topics
if ( !empty($board_info['id']) )
{
$start = (int) $_REQUEST['start'];
$context['topics'] = array();
if ( $xmlView )
{
$context['sub_template'] = 'kitsitemap_xml_board';
// maximum entries per sitemap
$context['topics_per_page'] = 50000;
$query= $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
SELECT
t.ID_TOPIC
FROM {db_prefix}messages AS m, {db_prefix}topics AS t
WHERE m.ID_BOARD = {int:id_board} AND m.ID_MSG = t.ID_FIRST_MSG
ORDER BY t.ID_LAST_MSG DESC
LIMIT {int:start}, {int:limit}",
array(
'id_board' => $board_info['id'],
'start' => $start,
'limit' => $context['topics_per_page']
)
);

while($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($query))
{
// fill topic array
$context['topics'][$row['ID_TOPIC']] = $row;
$context['topics'][$row['ID_TOPIC']]['href'] = $scripturl.'?topic='.$row['ID_TOPIC'].'.0';
}
}

with
Code: [Select]
// list board topics
if ( !empty($board_info['id']) )
{
$start = (int) $_REQUEST['start'];
$context['topics'] = array();
if ( $xmlView )
{
$context['sub_template'] = 'kitsitemap_xml_board';
// maximum entries per sitemap
$context['topics_per_page'] = 50000;
$query= $smcFunc['db_query']('', "
SELECT
t.ID_TOPIC, t.num_replies
FROM {db_prefix}messages AS m, {db_prefix}topics AS t
WHERE m.ID_BOARD = {int:id_board} AND m.ID_MSG = t.ID_FIRST_MSG
ORDER BY t.ID_LAST_MSG DESC
LIMIT {int:start}, {int:limit}",
array(
'id_board' => $board_info['id'],
'start' => $start,
'limit' => $context['topics_per_page']
)
);

$row2 = 0;
while($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($query))
{
// fill topic array
if (count($row2) == $context['topics_per_page']) break;
$context['topics'][$row2] = $row;
$context['topics'][$row2]['href'] = $scripturl.'?topic='.$row['ID_TOPIC'].'.0';
$row2++;
if (intval($row['num_replies'] / $modSettings['defaultMaxMessages']) > 1) {
$board_indexes = intval($row['num_replies'] / $modSettings['defaultMaxMessages']);
$topic_page = 1;
while ($topic_page <= $board_indexes)
{
$context['topics'][$row2] = $row;
$context['topics'][$row2]['href'] = $scripturl.'?topic='.$row['ID_TOPIC'].'.'.$topic_page * $modSettings['defaultMaxMessages'];
$topic_page++;
$row2++;
if (count($row2) == $context['topics_per_page']) break;
}
}
}
}


Sitemap will look like:

Checking to see if this is still supported.

I have this installed on my site but I don't see an real benefit from it, specifically in Google search results. What is the objective of the mod? If there is no sitemap.xml to submit to Google webmaster tools, isn't the mod basically doing nothing but duplicating links that are already created?

Thank you, any assistance and/or instruction would be greatly appreciated.

Post by: Dwev on February 27, 2018, 07:05:47 AM
I have absolutely nothing to do with the Mod, but I see a few questions to which I think I have the answer.

@ njtweb: use this links for the XML sitemap: URL-of-your-forum/index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml
You register your site with Google Webmaster Tools and enter this URL.

@ Julian F: as far as I can see the answer is yes.

@ Andreso: if you follow the instructions I wrote for njtweb above it will work.

Hi, if I visit URL-of-my-forum/index.php?action=kitsitemap;xml what should I see inside?
I see only the urls of the sections of my forum. Is it right?

In addition I use PrettyUrls mod... shouldn't I get a sitemap with friendly urls?

I have it that way it takes it correctly, see if via robots.txt you are blocking it but verify that google can access that file.
