11
12* 'Content Sitemap' - is a regular list of pages on your website. Creating and submitting such a Sitemap lets Google know about all the pages on your Plone web site, including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google's normal crawling process.
13
14* 'Mobile Sitemap' - is a specific type of Sitemap, that indexes all site URLs that serve content for mobile devices.
15
16* 'News Sitemap' - is different from regular Sitemaps, since it is specific to Google News only.
