We are looking at creating a parent and subsite folder structure, and we are not sure how to best create a sitemap for these separate installations that all sit under a main site name.
Parent: www.MyWebsite.com Subsite/Folder: www.MyWebsite.com/Brand
The complication occurs when have the main website which is a Joomla CMS installation:
Which will have a shop made from Magento eCommerce as a separate folder
A video sharing folder built from a Video Sharing PHP install:
and a blog built from Wordpress:
If it were set up as subdomains (e.g. www.shop.Mywebstie.com) then submitting a sitemap is relatively straight forward. Although it’s restrictions for SEO mean a folder structure will best optimise our SEO format for the site. Given though they are all separate software installs & folders sitting under the main URL, how do we best create a sitemap/sitemaps for the site given the different platforms in play?
Also will this same sitemap solution help with Google analytics?
Essentially how do we treat each folder as a separate site in google with regards to Google Analytics for reporting, and sitemaps for SEO optimisation?
eg: Joomla, Magento eCommerce, Video PHP, Wordpress.
If anyone could point us in the right direction or share some help that would be greatly appreciated.
Sitemap for multiple folders under same domain :
Sitemap is a list of urls for a web crawler to know the web structure and urls of your website to crawl.
There are various conventions followed by developers to create a sitemap. Like:
1) Single sitemap with all urls 2) Multiple sitemaps per directory or logical grouping of urls
But this does not make much of a difference as for crawler is concerned. It will pick those urls and crawl it.
Even if your sub-directories are created by various tools ultimately your website is a set of links that crawler understands.
For easy management, you can have a individual product's sitemap created from its used platform/tool and link it in main sitemap.
For google analytics:
Under the same property in google analytics you can create different views based on your requirement.
