A sitemap lists URLs that are available for crawling and can include additional information like your site's latest updates, frequency of changes and importance of the URLs. This allows search engines to crawl the site more intelligently.

Hello,

sitemaps are nothing but an Index for the website.It is recommended to upload or create a site map file only when the entire store setup is done or pages i.e categories,site pages and sub categories are created and good to go. Once you have verified your website through the Google Webmasters, the next best thing to do is create an XML Sitemap for your website. Sitemaps help Google to discover pages on your website that may not be discoverable otherwise. In the simplest of terms, a sitemap is a list of pages on your website, much like an index at the start of a book. And when you create a sitemap, you give Google an index of all your pages which makes it easier for the Mr. Know-it-All to show you up in the relevant search results.In case if the webpages or store pages are changed on regular basis then it is recommended to upload an updated sitemap file once in every 45-60 days.

An XML sitemap is used by search engines. XML sitemap helps search engines index websites more efficiently. Unlike HTML sitemaps, XML sitemaps aren't used or seen by visitors. This sitemap protocol provides search engines with meta data about individual pages of a website, in addition to their URLs.

Hello,


An XML Sitemap is a sitemap created for search engines. The XML Sitemap is a listing of all the URLs on your site that you want search engines to crawl and index. The Sitemap also provides information on when pages get updated and how important they are. Search engines do not guarantee they will fully abide by the sitemap, but search engines do use XML Sitemaps for assistance in crawling the web.

Many webmasters and SEOs have reported improved traffic simply from submitting the Sitemap. In addition, the Sitemap can greatly assist in diagnosing indexation shortcomings. Submitting a proper, up-to-date XML sitemap, therefore, is an SEO best practice.

Building a Sitemap can be very easy or quite complex. The return on investment with Sitemaps varies tremendously from case to case; indeed many people can waste time getting bogged down in Sitemap technicalities if it is unwarranted. The amount time you put into Sitemaps should depend on your needs. This guide focuses on thinking critically about how utilize Sitemaps as an SEO tool to address your specific needs of your website and SEO campaigns.

A sitemap is a file where you can list the web pages of your site to tell Google and other search engines about the organization of your site content. Search engine web crawlers like Googlebot read this file to more intelligently crawl your site.

Also, your sitemap can provide valuable metadata associated with the pages you list in that sitemap: Metadata is information about a webpage, such as when the page was last updated, how often the page is changed, and the importance of the page relative to other URLs in the site.
