Original README

sitemap_gen.py

Version 1.5

The sitemap_gen.py script analyzes your web server and generates one or more Sitemap files. These files are XML listings of content you make available on your web server. The files can be directly submitted to search engines as hints for the search engine web crawlers as they index your web site. This can result in better coverage of your web content in search engine indices, and less of your bandwidth spent doing it.

The sitemap_gen.py script is written in Python and released to the open source community for continuous improvements under the BSD 2.0 new license, which can be found at:

The original release notes for the script, including a walk-through for webmasters on how to use it, can be found at the following site:

The minimum Python version required is Python 2.2. However, if URLs on your site involve any non-ASCII characters, we strongly recommend Python 2.3 or later, as it better handles encoding issues.
