While spidering your site, we are able to determine your site's layout and flow by following links from page to page. These links and their corresponding position within each document are saved in order to create a map of your site.
The sitemap is a hypertext based map or outline of your site that provides complete navigation of the site from a single page. The sitemap can be used for your visitors to gain instant access to the information they seek. A sitemap can be thought of as your site's Table of Contents.
The sitemap is also very effective for site administrators to gain a better understanding of their site's flow and content, as well as ensuring proper use of HTML Titles and Meta Descriptions, which are used when building the sitemap and site search result links.
The automated sitemap feature is included with every package and will take on the same formatting characteristics as specified for the search results page. For those customers who do not wish to display a sitemap, this feature can be 'toggled' off.
FusionBot enables the choice of various sitemap formatting options, including the display of the sitemap as either a hierarchical tree or an alphabetically sorted list, and also allows the control of the maximum depth (directories) of pages that should
be displayed within your sitemap. To modify these settings, login to your account, and via the 'Customization' tab, select the 'Page Display Options' link.
Below is a sample sitemap output using the hierarchical tree option with a maximum depth of 3 levels, followed by an example of a sitemap output using the 'alphabetically sorted list' option:
