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.

  • vBulletin 3.8.x, 4.0.x, 4.1.x
  • vBulletin Blogs *Optional
  • vBulletin CMS *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

  • Auto-notifies Search Engines when a new sitemap is generated (optional)

This modification doesn't do anything to your URLs. It is a sitemap generator that creates an .xml sitemap for Google/Yahoo.

vbseo not worth the money from my opinion,today i wanted to edit my license for which i payed for 150$ and guess what: i can not edit it, because, i have to renew my license in order to edit it, so i payed 150$, and i can not use it ,i have to keep their link in my site, i can not edit my domain, tiket support real bad, what kind of service is that? that is why it is really bad to buy from other than official seller ( vbulletin) .
Good thing that from now on vbseo will be useless, vbulletin is upgrading their own seo system

This thread is about the free Sitemap Generator.

As I said to you on vB.com, you are incorrect as to the price of renewal, and the claim that we will not transfer a license if the request comes in prior to expiry and somehow we don't get to it:

Plus from now on in the next updates vbulletin is upgrading their own seo, so you really don`t need to throw away with money.
ps: i you want i sell mine
Hello,

As part of the vBSEO team, I feel I have to correct this.. the renewal is $35, not $150.

(Also, if you request a Transfer while your license is active, that transfer will be honored, even if your license was to expire prior to it being actioned.)

Regarding the differences between "vBulletin 4.0 SEO" and vBSEO, we have a feature matrix here: http://www.vbseo.com/en/feature-matrix/

@smurphy - Please feel free to PM me on vBSEO (Ace Shattock) and I can investigate your claim of a ticket that was unanswered, then you were required to renew. It doesn't sound anything like the way we operate, so I would be very interested in addressing it.

Thanks so much for the mod as well as the huge support you have given it. All this for free!!
I hope you members out there remember that this software would cost an arm and a leg to buy.
Oh by the way. It was so easy to install as well.
Thanks
