10Such Sitemaps help Google identify site URLs and the data under each site section. With Google Sitemaps
11enabled, search engines could track your Plone site URLs faster and more efficiently, optimizing their
12search by placing all the information on one page.

14With Plone Google Sitemaps product you can enable following Sitemap types on your Plone website:
15
[1657]16* ``Content Sitemap`` - is a regular list of pages on your website. Creating and submitting such a Sitemap
[3510]17  lets Google know about all the pages on your Plone website, including URLs that may not be discoverable
[1657]18  by Google's normal crawling process.
[3510]19* ``Mobile Sitemap`` - is a specific type of Sitemap, that indexes all site URLs that serve mobile-oriented content.
[2426]20* ``News Sitemap`` - is different from regular Sitemaps, since it is specific to Google News only.
[3510]21  It uses the Sitemap protocol, with additional News-specific tags, defined by Google. The package brings protocol with
22  additional Google Sitemaps tab to News Item content type for defining NewsSitemap-specific meta tags.
[1634]23
