Benefits of Sitemap Data



XML sitemap data is useful as this plays a role in the indexation of your site and is a file that you submit to Google. Consequently, you may want to analyse these files to ensure that they are correctly implemented.


What We Give You

Currently Raptor we provide two types of sitemap data, which are detailed below. We also provide a range of data about every URL such as File Size (Kb), Page Load Time (S), that can be used to help analyse and identify issues with your sitemaps.


Found in Sitemap

If the URL is listed in any XML sitemap.


A basic but highly useful check, we look to see if this URL is listed in an XML sitemap. Returning a classic ‘True’ or ‘False’ response for each field in the column. This checks for nothing except that stated previously, regardless of whether the page is any of the following:

  • Indexable
  • Canonical
  • Accessible / Status Code
  • Based on file type

If there are no sitemaps, or non-that we could find, we state “No Sitemaps”.


Sitemap URL

The URL of the XML sitemap where a URL is located.


Where we identify the URL of an XML sitemap that a page is detailed in, we list this URL here. If a URL is listed in more than one sitemap, this will be the first sitemap we found it in.

If a URL is not listed in any sitemap, the field will be blank.


What We Crawl, Scrape, Check & Analyse for You

We do all the following with the web crawler’s scraped data, to determine:

  • The contents of all XML sitemaps that we find
  • Check to see if every resource in listed in the XML sitemap


What This Can Tell You

Sitemap data can be used for many things, such as easily and quickly identifying:

  • Pages that should be in a sitemap but are not
  • Pages that should not be listed in the sitemap such as:
    • Redirected URLs
    • Non-status 200 URLs
    • Incorrect file types
    • Non-canonical pages
    • Non-indexable resources
    • Non-crawlable resources
  • All sitemaps on a site
  • Size of sitemaps
  • Volume of links in sitemaps
  • How many sitemaps there are
