How confident are you that your sitemaps are both clean and up-to-date?
This past week, we have spent a fair amount of time auditing sitemaps for our various sites and discovered quite a few issues, including URLs for pages that no longer exist, URLs with canonical tags indicating a different URL was preferred, and missing URLs that were not listed in the sitemap. Now that we are in the process of fixing these issues, we thought it would be timely to ask how confident you are in your sitemaps. Besides voting in the poll, be sure to share your thoughts on sitemaps and what efforts you have (or have not) made to be sure they are in decent shape. View poll
