The XML sitemap NOT WORK
I like drupal to build a website, Drupal is the powerful cms. In order for our site to have a good position in google we have to use SEO. One way of the SEO is create a sitemap.xml on our site.
The XML sitemap is a module of drupal to create a sitemap that conforms to sitemap.org, it will automatically submit to all search engines. It really helps our work in building a site that is SEO friendly.
Long time ago I was install the XML sitemap on my drupal site, then I deleted for a reason. And I installed it again, and the XML sitemap NOT WORK. I panic that I created the site for years suddenly does not want to generate sitemap.xml.
I go to the forums for a solution. I almost broke my spirit ..Some discussion about the XML sitemap have not give a solution for me. So I found a discussion on that page http://drupal.org/node/803756 posted by cdpapoulias in # 9 and it's work for me. Big thanks for cdpapoulias..
What we need to do to make it work is disable all XML sitemap module and uninstall it from your site. Then clear all caches at admin / settings / performance. After that upload and install the latest XML sitemap.
We just do a little setting in admin / settings / xmlsitemap:
1. upadate cached file in the menu list
2. setting in menu search engine, select all for the following engines, set at 1 hour, and custome submission URLs
3. Settings in the menu settings, Minimum sitemap lifetime: 5 minute.
Now please try to open your sitemap.xml page, you can see my sitemap http://polarizz.com/sitemap.xml. The problem in this issue has already been resolved. OK, good luck ...
