    Our members would greatly appreciate this. We're a small, rural community and for many of our users the Wild Apricot profile page is the only web presence so it's important all member profiles can be optimized for search engines (SEO). In addition, having an XML sitemap would also greatly improve crawler access to member profiles.

    Our admins would greatly appreciate fields to add custom URLs and page titles to member profile pages. This, in addition to the presence of an xml site map for bots to crawl, would greatly improve potential for member pages SEO and visibility in SERPs.

    Currently the page title is identical for all members and the query string in a member's profile URL has no human readability for identifying a member by name. Human readable taxonomy in page titles and URLs is critical in this day and age. SEO, today, is much more than building a network of links across the internet.

    We would like to see this, too. Generally we use mod_rewrite on other CMSes to accomplish it (though I certainly don't mean to oversimplify matters).

    In addition we would also like to specify custom page titles for SEO. All of our members want to be not only indexed, but indexed well :) !

    Thanks to Barbara, here is current workaround:
    --
    TO ADD A SITEMAP.XML to a WA SITE:
    Create a new folder under file mangement called sitemap.
    Then upload your site map to this folder.
    Sumbit your site map to Google, it will look something like this yoursite.com/resources/sitemap/sitemap.xml

    A good place for free google sitemaps is:
    xml-sitemaps.com
