Improved HTML sitemaps format We’ve improved and simplified the HTML sitemap feature. Your pages will now display in a simplified hierarchy based on the order in which our spider finds them, instead of the flat list. We also removed the URL to keep the list simpler.

Improved HTML spidering (Robots, Canonical, Rel) We now now parse a number of HTML elements to better understand your website and which files should be in your sitemap. Canonical urls We now detect the link rel=“canonical” tag. <link rel="canonical" href="http://xmlsitemapgenerator.org"/> Where we detect this tag and it points to another page we will not include the current page in the sitemap and will instead spider the url specified in href attribute of the tag.

Improved support for character encoding and redirects Character encoding We’ve improved our spider so that it can cope with a wider range of character sets including Arabic and Chinese. Don’t forget that for this feature to work correctly it is important that we can understand your website encoding otherwise our spider won’t interpret it correctly and your sitemap will contain strange characters and symbols. http://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_charactersets.asp Improved HTTP 301 redirect and 302 Moved handling Not only do we now follow HTTP 301 and HTTP 302 automatically.
