Use our free tools to easily create XML sitemaps, inform search engines including Google, Bing, and Yandex of all your web pages and any changes to them, and make sure all your pages are properly indexed.
You, as a webmaster, are constantly trying to push your website to the top of the search engine results pages (SERPs), aren’t you?
No doubt, everyone’s primary goal is to get more and more traffic to their website.
But in order for your site to be indexed and ultimately ranked, search engines like Google often need to “crawl” your site regularly.
They do this to showcase the most latest valuable content in search results.
Sometimes, search bots can crawl a site more than once a day, specifically if you post new articles throughout the day, such as news sites.
Almost all crawl process algorithms are strongly automated, which means that dedicated computer programs determine how often each site crawls a search bot.
The more this search engine spider crawls your website, the more your pages will be indexed. This eventually leads to more of your pages showing on top for searche, and extensions bring more organic traffic to your site.
However, you need to have a framework for your site to crawl *correctly* every time. And it is called Sitemap.
Extensible Markup Language or XML is a standard machine-readable file format, used by search engines and other data-munging programs such as feed readers.
In simple words, a sitemap XML is a document that helps Google and other major search engines to access perfectly your website when it crawls.
It is basically a complete structure of a site URL or pages, which allows you to announce additional information about each URL.
XML maps list pages accordingly and provide complete report about those pages to help search engines crawl your site more Wisely.
This means that a good sitemap provides a roadmap to your website that leads search engines to all your indexable pages.
