To improve search engine indexation and user navigation on a Magento web store, ecommerce merchants should think about using HTML and XML sitemaps tools, since default Magento platform does not provide sufficient functionality for this. That шы why another Magento extension we are going to describe today is MageWorx Sitemap Suite.
The MageWorx Sitemap Suite Magento 2 toolkit provides merchants with everything they need to create advanced fully-optimised HTML and XML sitemaps. The module is designed to improve user experience by creating a snapshot of all your website links in the form of a Magento 2 HTML sitemap. It means that HTML sitemap will collect all your website links in a table of contents on one page, providing visitors with a comprehensive overview of your site layout. As a result, your store visitors get better navigation through your ecommerce website structure and can reach the pages they need faster.
Besides, you can help search engines, which do not understand HTML sitemaps, better crawl and index your store pages with the Magento 2 XML sitemap. Since XML sitemap includes files with all URLs on your web store that need to be indexed in search engines, Google will faster identify important information about relevant pages and their updates. Thus, with the extension, you significantly improve search engine indexation and your website’s SEO in the long term. Moreover, the MageWorx sitemap module is fully compliant with all Google requirements.
It is also necessary to mention that MageWorx Sitemap Suite not only provides the following opportunities, but adds a lot of advanced settings to the default sitemap creation process, and below we shed light on them.
The MageWorx Cross Links extension is designed to optimise a current internal store linking structure. The tool lets you save tons of time by eliminating manual work related to adding links to each page of your website. Instead, it automatically replaces keywords or keyword phrases with links to both internal pages or external sources. Thus, you get a perfect opportunity to connect keywords to the product, category, or CMS pages, as well as link them by categories or products. Links connecting thematically relevant site pages drastically improve user experience on an online store, providing customers with enhanced store navigation. When you link your store pages to related websites, you can gain more trust from your web store visitors ensuring them that your store is associated with reliable web sources. Besides that, the well-organised internal linking structure is a must-have to make an online shop search engine friendly. As a result, you drive more traffic to your website promoted pages and evenly distribute page authority and ranking power throughout the site. Besides, you do not have to worry about conflicts that may occur during the cross-linking process, since the MageWorx Magento 2 Cross Links module offers advanced priority settings. Sounds great, so let’s look at the extension’s features in more details.
