Using Sitemaps

Using Sitemaps

  • You can index only the sitemaps listed on the webpage by enabling sitemaps in WEB collection settings.
  • We support the sitemap.xml if it is in the robots.txt when the settings ”Follow sitemap" is enabled.
  • If the sitemap.xml has a list of other sitemaps.xml SearchBlox would index the same.
  • Standard XML sitemaps are supported by SearchBlox. Sitemaps with compressed XML files with tar or gzip file extensions are not supported currently in SearchBlox.
  • Only sitemaps would be indexed on disabling ignore sitemaps that is, the links available in http://example.com/sitemap.xml would be indexed.
  • By default, ignore sitemaps would be enabled in WEB collection settings.
  • Multiple sitemaps can be indexed on providing multiple URLs in the root path.
  • Allow/Disallow collection path rules can be considered while indexing sitemap URLs.
  • Spider depth and other WEB settings are not applicable for sitemaps.
