Monitis Adds Automatic Web SiteMap Generation to Its Free Links-Checker Service

Press Release

San Jose 12 Aug, 2009 Monitis Inc., a leading provider of enterprise-class systems management software as a service, added a sitemap generation to Links-Checker, its free websites’ links monitoring service.

Free Links-Checker service from Monitis now not only can validate your sites’ links, but also can generate a sitemap. A site map (or sitemap) is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. Sitemaps can improve search engine optimization of a site by making sure that all the pages can be found. This is especially important if a site uses dynamic access to content such as Adobe Flash or JavaScript menus that do not include HTML links. They also act as a navigation aid by providing an overview of a site’s content at a single glance. Links-Checker generates any kind of sitemap you require: XML, Text, HTML and ROR.

To get the best search engine placement possible for your website a site map may be necessary. The site maps first purpose of course is to make navigating the pages of your site easy for the site’s human visitors. The site map also provides the search engine spiders an easier navigation of your site. In this regard when a spider visits your page and is unable to easily navigate or find the information about web page content, when the page was last updated and the relation the pages have with one another, the spider will leave the site and your page will lose this opportunity to be listed in search engine result pages.

Google Sitemaps was introduced by Google to make it easier for website designers to publish the entire list of links from all of their pages. The Sitemaps protocol is now supported through cooperation between Ask Now, MSN, Google, and Yahoo. Sitemaps uses the premise that many pages on websites have dynamic content that can only be accessed through user entries and completed forms. The sitemap files can then indicate to web crawlers, such as those used by search engine, how to locate all of these pages.

If users want to tell Google and other search engines about your Sitemap, simply add the following line ‘Sitemap:’ (i.e. to websites’ robots.txt file. Using Links-Checker’s novel features, site owners can ensure that their site map is fresh at all times. Keeping site maps synchronized by including the new contents added to the web site, may take time. Links-checker will crawl your web pages and will renew your site map, at least once daily. Hence, users can ensure that search engines like Google get the latest site map. Thus, users will be optimizing their web sites for indexing and search.
