Sitemaps

a quick explanation

Many people do not understand the importance of a sitemap. We have made it very easy indeed. Actually it is almost automatic.

On the dashboard you will see a panel for sitemap:

A sitemap is a special type of file used by search engines such as Google that follows a certain format call XML. It consists of a details of the pages in a very specific way so that the search engines can index them.

For example the sitemap for this site contains a reference to the home page:


< loc >https://whitelabelsite.co.uk/award-winning-white-label-site-by-tdbcomputing< /loc >
    < lastmod >2019-09-23T17:54:17+00:00< /lastmod >
    < changefreq >weekly< /changefreq >1
 

This tell the search engine the address of the page, when it was last modified, how often it is modified and a priority.

Our system generates this by simply pressing the button and it saves it in the public directory of the site, so you can tell Google that there is a sitemap (it will be https://yourdomainname/sitemap.xml). You only need to register with Google Analytics and tell t where the site map is and it will be monitored and periodically updated by Google.

You will need to prove to Google you own the site, and we have made that extremely easy as well. In the Header Code area of the admin menu you will see a box:

Google will give you an authetication code (we have blanked it out here) and you just have to paste the code into the box above and press verify and you are done:

You register your site with Google (https://google.com/webmasters - it's free) and simply tell it about your sitemap. Google will then read your sitemap and index it.

All modern search engines use this method.
