    Sitemap Countries

    https://www.domain.com/{location}/sitemap.xml

    Does the system allow sitemap for specific location to be submitted

    example https://www.domain.com/japan/sitemap.xml does not work for me

    Hello Errol,

    It is not working because this functional doesn't exist. If you want it like your example it will cost you extra and will be better if you create a new ticket with the request.
    Viktor,
    Flynax technical department,
    Best wishes.

    Anyone have experience with making the sitemap international?

    I do not think this feature has been added to flynax?

    I would think this is an import issue for those with international websites?

    However, maybe I am wrong?

    Hello Joe, I run mainly across 7 countries and in many ways It probably is not needed in that I have titles like > Find the Best Dating Coach in Los Angeles. > Best Life Coach Courses in Sydney. and the list goes on, those words are in the > URL, Title, H1 and mostly in the meta description < so I doubt best life coaches in Sydney would show up in the states for example.

    Flynax is very well set up and works well if people take the time to understand it.

    In addition, you could add the country/state etc to the meta description of listing in the back end on the category pages, so in that way any listings posted will be tagged with location etc if people are using them and that would be added to the sitemap and help that way as well if you wanted.

    I agree with pete , once u understand how flynax works and know the little adjustments you can make its pretty good. You have way more options than alot of others out tjere. But you have to play with it and see what works for you. All the international or country settings are in geo filter for sitemap.

    I am wondering, If I have 10 countries each with 1,000 listings are the listings going to be organized separately by country and/or category on the sitemap?

    I do understand that the listing URLs include locations of the listings, if using the Geo Filter, which I have already setup and installed with the assistance of Flynax's paid support.

    Is everything organized by order of publication date or alphabetily by title.

    Maybe, I do not understand how sitemaps work.

    Yes, I am still learning the software; so, forgive me for the dumb questions.

    no such thing as dumb questions, you can check your site map by just dialling it up, but I really do not think order on the site map has any importance? I may be wrong, just as long as it updating new listings to the search engines.

    yoursite . com/sitemap.xml

    <sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">

    </sitemapindex>

    You can see the site map splits up so copy the individual sitemaps example > https://yoursite. com /files/sitemap/sitemap_listings1.xml

    Also in you admin Common basic setting sitemap add the following to stop these showing up in your search engines


    Disallow: /templates/
    Disallow: /files/
    Disallow: /plugins/

    Thanks a million Pete.

    I am set to add a few dozen of test listing in a day or two; so, I will be able to understand the plugins functions a bit better.

    I will try to find time on sitemap structure recommendations next week.

    I am sure what we have follows the current suggestion for SEO improvement.
