Setting Your Sites on Site Maps

Last Update: May 28, 2018

THE ADVANTAGE OF A SITE MAP.

Websites that are properly designed allow traffic to search and navigate around the entire website using no sitemap. However, adding a site map gives users yet another method of locating pages within a site. So, pages that are listed in a site map are, in turn, linked to the proper page, allowing visitors to swiftly go to any page of a site that is listed in the site map.

Setting up a site map for your website is fairly easy to do. Simply go to Google Search Console (the former Google Webmaster Tools) and set up a listing for your website. It is here that you will manage all your site's search methods and ways to allow Google to crawl your website.

This will help index your site, optimizing visibility (SEO) and getting it noticed on the web. It will also assist in increasing traffic, by improving the overall indexing and ranking of your site. Here are some helpful links to guide you in the process:

You'll get there! Just try not to do too many sites at once --- it gets confusing.

Hi Ifeoma and happy to connect! Depending how long after the 7 days it has been, you can message Carson or Kyle and inform them that you want to upgrade. Sometimes Kyle will extend it 7 more days. It's worth a shot! Do it immediately, though. You may also respond to Kyle's message on your wall. That's a great way to get his attention!

Erin :)!

I had forgotten until last week that I had never set up a sitemap for my newer website this year. I really need to do that! I just got so busy I totally forgot. Thanks for the reminder again...
