vBulletin allows you to create and submit an XML sitemap to search engines and website management tools. The sitemap can facilitate tasks like indexing of your site and troubleshooting problems with your site content.
You must click Save for changes to take effect.
Enable Automatic Sitemap Generation[b] (Yes/No)
If you set this option to Yes, vBulletin generates sitemaps automatically using the Scheduled Task Manager.
If you have a large site, you might want to leave this disabled, because it can be a time-consuming task.
Even if automatic sitemap generation is enabled, you can always generate your sitemap files manually by clicking on Rebuild Sitemap.
[b]Automatic Sitemap Generation Frequency (Days)[b] (default: 14)
If automatic sitemap generation is enabled, this option controls the number of days between automatic builds.
[b]Default Sitemap Priority (default: 0.5)
The default priority for content in the XML sitemap.
For performance reasons, only a limited amount of content should be listed in the sitemap as high priority, so don’t set this value too high.
You can configure the priority on a per-content basis in:
<<<Internal link: XML Sitemap>>>.
Automatic Sitemap Search Engine Submission
Allows you to select one or more search engines to which to submit your sitemap.
Possible selections include Google, Yahoo!, Bing!/Live Search, Ask.com, and Moreover.
Sitemap File Path
XML sitemap data must be written to the filesystem to function. Enter the full path to the directory to which the files should be written.
Do not include a trailing slash. This directory must be writable by the webserver. It also must be accessible via a web browser.
URLs Per Page (maximum: 50000; default: 30000)
Enter the number of URLs to be processed per page (and placed in each sitemap file).
Only one type of content is written to a file, so there might be files with fewer URLs than the number specified here.
