vBSEO Search Engine XML Sitemap 3.0
We are extremely pleased to inform the vBulletin.org community that a fully revamped version of the vBSEO Search Engine XML Sitemap (previously "vBSEO Google/Yahoo Sitemap Generator") v.3.0, is being released to all licensed vBulletin users effective immediately!



Note: The NEW vBSEO Search Engine XML Sitemap 3.0 replaces all previous versions of the "vBSEO Google/Yahoo Sitemap Generator", and includes support for all the new URL types in vBulletin 4.x.

New in the vBSEO Search Engine XML Sitemap v.3.0
The new sitemap alters the way data is structured in fundamental ways. Sitemap 3.0 segments different content areas into separate files, so you end up with a unique set of files per content type: forums, blogs, cms, groups, albums, members, tags, etc. In addition, the new sitemap has an extended priority feature that utilizes the built in 'weight' tool of the vBulletin XML sitemap generator for individual forums, CMS sections and articles to act as a multiplier.

We believe these changes are responsible for delivering increased returns for a number of forums from customers and testers we've been tracking. Please track your own progress via your Google Webmaster tools account, Google Analytics or Gravity Insights.

A Clean and Beautiful Interface
The new sitemap also features a clean and beautiful interface, built from the ground up. We believe it reflects the quality, precision and attention to detail placed into each aspect of this release. We are passionate about building software, and great software is beautiful inside, and out.

Overview
============================

The "vBSEO Search Engine XML Sitemap" plugin provides an easy to use solution that allows your forum to be indexed by all major search engines, including Google, Yahoo, Bing, and Ask, faster, more completely, more effectively, and with less bandwidth consumption.

The ultimate goal is to help you achieve more web traffic for your forum.

Google Sitemaps is an easy way for you to help improve your site’s representation in the Google index. It's a collaborative crawling system that enables you to communicate directly with Google. You get a smarter crawl because you can provide Google with specific information about all your web pages, such as when a page was last modified or how frequently it changes.
Note: This plugin is fully compliant with vBSEO 3.5.x versions. The current version is vBSEO 3.5.2. If you are running vBSEO, please upgrade to vBSEO 3.5.2 (or greater) before installing for optimal results.

Compatibility
============================

Fully compatible with:
  • vBulletin 3.8.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.x
  • vBulletin Blogs *Optional
  • vBulletin CMS *Optional
  • vBSEO 3.5.2 + higher *Optional
What does it do?
============================
  • Auto-generates an XML sitemap for all of your specified forum URL types (including vBulletin Blog & CMS URLs).
  • NEW! Groups forum areas into individual sitemaps grouped by section type for greater flexibility, for example:
    • sitemap_forum_X.xml.gz
    • sitemap_tags_X.xml.gz
    • sitemap_cms_X.xml.gz
  • Auto-notifies Search Engines when a new sitemap is generated (optional)
  • Automatically sends you a summary of the sitemap generation via email each time it is created (optional)
  • Includes only publicly accessible forums and threads and includes the option of not including any specific public forums
  • Allows Search Engines to find all of your forum URLs without having to spider the forum to find the links. Great for Deep Page linking!
  • Allows Search Engines to find your forum URLs without having to account for query string and/or session ID information.
  • Allows Search Engines to give precedence to crawling your higher priority forum pages.
  • Allows Search Engines to give precedence to crawling your forum pages that change more frequently.
  • Allows you to conserve bandwidth by more efficiently facilitating the crawling processes for GoogleBot, Yahoo Slurp, Ask's Teoma, Bing's msnbot, and other search engine bots.

  • Is 100% compatible with the 'Friendly URLs' offered default with vb4.x.
How does it work?
============================

Whenever it is scheduled or invoked via the URL, this plugin will generate an XML formatted that search engines are able to read and parse. If you selected "Yes" to the Auto-notification setting, The 4 major search engines will be notified each time the sitemap is generated.
  • Google Sitemap files are gzipped for space savings
  • Forum and thread pages are listed with pagination (i.e. all pages for each forums/thread are included in the sitemap)
  • Maximum Priority is set for Sticky threads.
  • Optimization for sitemap generation on large forums.
Automated Reporting Tool
============================

The vBSEO Sitemap includes a report tool, allowing you to track your progress. To access your reports enter the following URL:

http://www.example.com/forums/vbseo_sitemap/

Not Found
The requested URL /google-talk-71/ was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.


It is an issue in .htaccess file.
