Code Search Sitemap for Google Code Search - Quick start
Create XML Sitemap file for Google code search
1) Navigate to New button, select Google Code Search and press OK
2) In order to add a new code, press on Add button.
3) In the URL field of appeared window enter the address of your file, code or archive file.
Last Modified - Last modification Date. Note that this tag is not related to the headline â€œIf-Modified-Since (304)â€, which may return the server; therefore search engines can differently use the information from these two sources. By default the information is taken from the Settings of the project.
Use "Last Modified" - Remove the checkbox if you donâ€™t want to select the â€œLast Modifiedâ€.
Change Frequency -Probable frequency of change on this page. This value provides general information for search engines and may not correspond with the exact crawling of the web-page. By default the information is taken from the Settings of the project.
Use "Change Frequency" - Remove the checkbox if you donâ€™t want to select the "Change Frequency".
Priority - The priority of this URL relative to other URLs on your site. This value doesnâ€™t impact the comparison of your pages to the pages of other websites â€“ it just lets the search engines know which pages, in your opinion, are more important for the crawlers. By default the information is taken from the Settings of the project.
Use "Priority" - Remove the checkbox if you donâ€™t want to select the "Priority".
4) Now let's switch to Google Code Search tab and select code attributes, which really are not that necessary.
License - Title of the license for the software. In case of archive files this parameter specifies the standard license for files in archive. For example, "GPL", "BSD", "Python".
File Name - Name of the actual file. The given tag is useful in cases, when at the end of URL address instead of actual file name the parameter is underlined (for example, download.php?id=1234). The name can contain any symbols, but "/".
Package URL - Is used only when the "File Typeâ€ value differs from â€œarchiveâ€. For packages the URL address is truncated at the level of upper directory.
For example, file http://path/Foo/1.23/bar/file.can have package address URL http://path/Foo/1.23. All files in the package should have the same package URL. It will allow us to understand, which files go together.
Package Map - Is used only in one case, when the â€œType Fileâ€ - â€œarchiveâ€ value. The package map file name is in the archive. Package map - is the list of files in the package, the same as Sitemap - list of files on the website.
5) Now we need to save Google Code Search XML Sitemap file. For that we need to navigate to XML button.
6) A window with a message about Sitemap being successfully generated should appear, where you can push the OPEN IN THE FOLDER button and see your saved XML Sitemap file.
That's it; your XML Sitemap for Google Search Code is all set. Now you only need to upload it on server and notify search engines about your Sitemap file. You can do it online for free via our website: http://www.sitemapwriter.com/notify.php
