16* ``Content Sitemap`` - is a regular list of pages on your website. Creating and submitting such a Sitemap
17  lets Google know about all the pages on your Plone web site, including URLs that may not be discoverable
18  by Google's normal crawling process.
19* ``Mobile Sitemap`` - is a specific type of Sitemap, that indexes all site URLs that serve content for
20  mobile devices.
21* ``News Sitemap`` - is different from regular Sitemaps, since it is specific to Google News only.
22  It uses the Sitemap protocol, with additional News-specific tags, defined by Google.
