2============

4Plone Google Sitemaps product allows Plone websites to get better visibility for Google search engine
5by providing it with complete listing of URLs to website content.
6
7Plone Google Sitemaps allows you to enable different kinds of Google Sitemaps on your Plone website.
8Such Sitemaps help Google identify site URLs and the data under each site section. With Google Sitemaps
9enabled, search engines could track your Plone site URLs faster and more efficiently, optimizing their
10search by placing all the information on one page.
11
12With Plone Google Sitemaps product you can enable following Sitemap types on your Plone website:
13
14* ``Content Sitemap`` - is a regular list of pages on your website. Creating and submitting such a Sitemap
15  lets Google know about all the pages on your Plone web site, including URLs that may not be discoverable
16  by Google's normal crawling process.
17* ``Mobile Sitemap`` - is a specific type of Sitemap, that indexes all site URLs that serve content for
18  mobile devices.
19* ``News Sitemap`` - is different from regular Sitemaps, since it is specific to Google News only.
20  It uses the Sitemap protocol, with additional News-specific tags, defined by Google. The package brings
21  additional Google Sitempas tab to News Item content type for defining NewsSitemap-specific meta tags.
22
23Different Sitemap types index their own content and do not depend on other Sitemaps.
