Free Sitemap Generator

Our tool creates a sitemap as defined by Google™ for your site. Enter the url of your website(s), let our tools generate a sitemap for you and download the compressed sitemap later. Don't forget to submit the sitemap to Google™. We spider your entire site (up to 5,000 pages for free accounts and 25,000 for premium accounts) to make sure all links/pages are included in the sitemap.

Sitemaps generated: 577,614
(we spidered 1,287,096,500+ pages)

How does it work?

First you create an account and add your first website. Just enter the homepage url of your website. Whenever you want to generate an xml sitemap press the Make Sitemap button on the control panel page.

Our spiders will, just like a Search Engine spider, crawl your website finding all links. When it is done spidering your website you will receive an e-mail.

You can then download the sitemap (zip file) from this site and upload it to your own website. Don't forget to submit your sitemap to Google. You can even let us upload the new sitemap directly to your website automatically! And we can even ping Google™ and Bing™ to let them know you have a new sitemap ready.

At this time we cannot spider more than 5,000 URLs per site for free accounts and 25,000 for premium accounts.

SSL Certificate Installed

SSLLabs Screenshot It took a while --{ busy with other projects, sorry }-- but finally freesitemapgenerator.com has moved to https. Your bits and bytes will now be encrypted between your browser and our servers. The free SSL server test at SSL Labs checked the installation and gave our web servers an "A"! All traffic to http://www.freesitemapgenerator.com/ is now redirected to https://freesitemapgenerator.com/. This should be very transparent to the Free Sitemap Generator users but if you see strange behavior please let us know.

As we promised earlier this year, we will keep track of the Google SERPs, Indexed Pages and all other kind of metrics. We expect to see a little rise in the SERPs because Google announced to reward https websites. You, as a fellow webmaster, will probably be interested in the results. We will give the internets a couple of weeks to settle and then we will compare data and report back to you. With the Let's Encrypt program being released later this year it will be easier than ever to migrate to https.

The magic Apache configuration I used to enable this redirect:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule (.*) https://freesitemapgenerator.com$1 [R=301]

Automatic upload script updated (ACTION REQUIRED)

If you have installed our upload script to get new sitemaps uploaded to your website, you might have encountered some problems with larger sitemaps. Hosting providers have set different maximum upload sizes and sometimes the sitemaps were just to large to be uploaded in one call.

To overcome this problem we have extended the upload script to upload a sitemap.xml in batches of 1MB.

If you have a small site (and a small sitemap) no action is required: you can keep using the existing upload script.

If you have already seen errors in the upload process or have a growing site and a growing sitemap: install the version 3.0.0 of the upload script as soon as possible. To (re-)install the upload script, Log in and in the control panel scroll down and look for the "Install 'Auto Upload' package" form. Select the website and click on Install. And as always, your feedback is appreciated.

Redirection detection

We have added a redirection detector when you add a new website to your account. In the past we have had some questions from users who created a new account and added a site like http://freesitemapgenerator.com/. This website was actually a redirect to https://www.freesitemapgenerator.com/ and our spider sees this as two different websites. The sitemap for freesitemapgenerator.com would then be empty: all links to https://www.freesitemapgenerator.com/ are considered to be external links.

If you now add a new website we will fetch the homepage automatically and see if it this is a redirect. If it is we will follow the redirect and store the new url in our database. In the use case mentioned above, the URL stored in our database would have been https://www.freesitemapgenerator.com/ and we think that is exactly what this user was requesting.

This feature will not affect existing entries: the filter is applied only when adding a new account or new site. Your feedback is, as always, highly appreciated and will help us to improve our ability to serve you and other users of our web sites.

Move to HTTPS

FreeSitemapGenerator is always looking for ways to improve our own and your rankings. Lately we have received multiple reports that state we should move our site to HTTPS. According to Google HTTPS will be used as a minor ranking signal. Google:

For now it's only a very lightweight signal affecting fewer than 1% of global queries, and carrying less weight than other signals such as high-quality content while we give webmasters time to switch to HTTPS. But over time, we may decide to strengthen it, because we.d like to encourage all website owners to switch from HTTP to HTTPS to keep everyone safe on the web.

from: googlewebmastercentral.blogspot.com/ 2014/08/https-as-ranking-signal.html

We are now gathering metrics of freesitemapgenerator.com and will move to HTTPS later this month. We will report back to you with updated metrics and see if it is worth to move to HTTPS. If you have moved a site to HTTPS and want to share the results with us and/or the entire FreeSitemapGenerator.com community get in touch!

FreeSitemapGenerator can create sitemaps for HTTPS websites since 2014.
