    Sandy, I said I had a good site map and was asking only about SEO value. You replied with the generic "yes good to have". Had nothing to do with my question. Yes it's good to have. That's why I've had one for 20 years as stated. This site gets a lot of lame spam answers from Yahoos. It looked like that.

    Based of the owner of an XML business and KnowOnes replies, I will probably not bother then with XML for now. It's another big time killer. So much to do...

    Personally, I think it's really worthwhile to do. Mainly for checking in search console to compare indexed pages vs what's in the sitemap.

    I would use a tool such as Screaming Frog to crawl and generate the sitemap, I can do this for you if you want for you to upload?

    Just for public knowledge, I've now done the sitemap and replied back to the pm.

    As for Screaming Frog, the information pricing can be found here, currently 149 a year. https://www.screamingfrog.co.uk/seo-spider/pricing/

    Also, a total of 3144 pages for those being nosey

    Darn Thomas, I think I mentioned earlier in the thread, I did not want a new utility bill. but thanks anyway. Is the a free place out there? The owner of the XML company I have been chatting with is just $3 a month and he says it not necessary. It one can find a good place for free cool. Everyone on that planet want another $160.00 a year for something.

    ScreamingFrog is free under 500 pages, so if you didn't have a "large" site you'd be fine ;)

    It is however not just a sitemap tool but a full tool to guide the more technical SEO's on finding issues etc.

    So for example it found this duplicate content issue on your site:

    domain.com/music/santee-photographer-portrait.html
    domain.com/music/palm-desert-photographer-portrait.html

    Same content different urls, so classed as duplicate content.

    Also, just noticed that both your http:// and http://www. are showing, you need to choose to either use one or the other and resolve those redirects.


    (sorry this post is slightly off-topic)
