Polylang Dynamic Sitemap Generator

Description

Polylang Dynamic Sitemap Generator is a powerful WordPress plugin that automatically generates SEO-friendly sitemaps for all active languages and post types in your multilingual website powered by Polylang. With this plugin, you can ensure that your website’s sitemap stays up to date with the latest content and accurately reflects the structure of your multilingual website.

The plugin seamlessly integrates with Polylang to determine the active languages on your website. It retrieves all published posts and pages for each language and generates separate sitemap files tailored to each language. Additionally, it creates a main sitemap.xml file that serves as the index for the language-based sitemaps.

The generated sitemaps follow the XML Sitemap protocol, including the essential elements such as the URL, last modification date, and change frequency for each post. These sitemaps can be easily submitted to search engines, aiding in the efficient indexing of your website and improving its search engine optimization (SEO) performance.
