Sitemap Generator for 301 Redirects & More

Let’s face it, the toolbox available to you as an SEO is overwhelming and most of them are underwhelming.

So while this SEO Tool Tip is geared towards the beginner SEO or weekend business owner SEO warrior, even a seasoned SEO might find some uses, if he/she hasn’t already settled on a tool.

Let’s say you need to perform a host of 301 Redirects because you’re redesigning your site. You look at your site and slouch lower in your chair because the task of clicking each page, copying the URL, and pasting into an XL spreadsheet/Word Doc seems daunting.

You totally do not have to do this. This works best for smaller sites and sites under 500 pages. Go here -> XML-Sitemaps.com and paste your homepage URL into the box. Run the FREE sitemap generator and then download the text (txt) version. From here, you can copy and paste your freely generated sitemap into XL and start the process of making your definitive list of 301 Redirects.

This whole URL/sitemap generation process might take you a whopping 2 minutes, so stop slouching and get to work — if you want to call it that.

That’s your SEO tool tip for today. If you have any questions or need more info, feel free to email me (I’ll do my best to get right back to you!).
