Generates XML sitemap conforming to Google's recommendations
for using "hreflang" attribute in sitemap on multilingual site and sitemaps.org protocol.

Features

Generated sitemap is available at http(s)://your.domain/sitemap.xml and include URLs for:

  • pages created by nodes;
  • non-empty taxonomy terms pages;
  • publicly available pages by "Views" module.

If one node is set as site's front page, direct URL to this node will be
automatically excluded from sitemap to avoid content duplication.

URLs which you do not want include to sitemap may be excluded.

Content which presented on any of available languages can be excluded from the sitemap.

Each time sitemap re-built, backup copy of previous file state is saved as
public://easy_xmlsitemap/sitemap.xml.bak

Less important and optional URLs attributes "priority" and "lastmod" are omitted in this version.
