XML Sitemap

An XML sitemap is like a blueprint for your website, residing on the web server and containing a list of all relevant URLs within the site’s structure. It serves as a helpful reference, especially during site changes, and aids search engine crawlers in intelligently navigating the site’s layout. While sitemaps don’t guarantee indexing of all links or ensure crawling, they significantly improve the likelihood of search engines discovering and understanding your site’s content. Essentially, it’s a way of signaling to search engines, saying, “Hey, Google — check out this fine website.” Explore resources on XML sitemaps and their creation for further insights.


An example of an XML sitemap might look like this:


<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>

<urlset xmlns=”http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9″>













   <!– Additional URLs –>



This XML sitemap lists two URLs (`https://www.example.com/page1` and `https://www.example.com/page2`) along with their last modification date, change frequency, and priority. It helps search engines understand the structure of the website and prioritize crawling accordingly.
