BWP Google XML Sitemaps: Plugin Overview
With BWP GXS you will no longer have to worry about the 50,000 URL limit or the time it takes for a sitemap to be generated. This plugin is fast, consumes much less resource and can be extended via your very own modules (No hooks needed).
Google News Sitemap Support
With this plugin you can easily add a Google News sitemap to your sitemapindex. News sitemap can be used to ping search engines individually. When you publish a new post in a news category, all selected search engines will be pinged.
Splitting Post-Based Sitemaps
This plugin can automatically split large post sitemaps into smaller ones. You can set a limit for each small sitemap.
For example if you have 200K posts and would like to have 10K posts for each sitemap, BWP GXS will then split the post.xml into 20 parts.
This helps you bypass the 50,000 URLs limit without having to build your custom modules, and also helps make your sitemaps smaller, lighter and faster to generate.
Each website within your network will have its own sitemapindex and sitemaps.
For sub-domain installation, your sitemapindex will appear at http://sub-domain.example.com/sitemapindex.xml. For sub-folder installation, your sitemapindex will appear at http://example.com/sub-folder/sitemapindex.xml.
The sitemapindex for your main site is available at http://example.com/sitemapindex.xml. If you select the sub-domain approach, each sub-domain can also have its own robots.txt.
Custom Sitemaps Using Modules
This plugin offers the ability to define your custom sitemaps using modules. Each module is a actually .php file that tell BWP GXS how to build a sitemap file. You can extend default modules or create completely new ones.
