Time Zone - Choose a time zone for your Sitemap file, it's possible to set a time zone for a website.
Default Last Modified Date/Time.- The date of file's list modification. Note that this tag is not related to the headline Ñ‚ÐÐ¬If-Modified-Since (304)Ñ‚ÐÐ, which may return the server; therefore search engines can differently use the information from these two sources. The program will use this setting only when the crawler automatically won't find the date of file's last modification.
Use Default 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.
Use Default Priority - The priority of this URL relative to other URLs on your site. This value doesnÑ‚ÐÐ©t impact the comparison of your pages to the pages of other websites Ñ‚ÐÐ£ it just lets the search engines know which pages, in your opinion, are more important for the crawlers.
