Bing Webmaster Tools – Announcing Bing Sitemap Plugin (Beta) for Apache/ IIS
This week Bing announced on Bing Webmaster Blog, a new reveal that helps webmaster create two types of XML Sitemap called Bing Sitemap Plugin..
A Bing Sitemap Plugin is available for Apache and ISS servers that help you create Interactive Sitemap of all URLs seen in server traffic and Sitemap dedicated to store URLs that have changed recently….The source for the Beta is available for download on the Microsoft Download Center.
Duane Forrester has to explain “How the Bing Sitemap Plugin Works….
Having both comprehensive and delta Sitemaps provides you with significant benefits, as you will always have a full, up-to-date list of all URLs on your website that search engines can use for deep crawl, as well as a concise Sitemap of URLs that were modified recently, which search engine crawlers can prioritize. This can help in keeping bot traffic bandwidth down. In addition, the Sitemap Plugin automatically adds values to your Sitemap, and generates values to the Sitemap based on how popular your URLs are.
