This short guide will show you how to add your website sitemap in a few simple steps.
How it works
The sitemap is a built-in feature (unlike an add-on) and is enabled by default for every website, so no actions need to be taken — it is already available.
The sitemap content is generated automatically based on the content of the Google Sheets if the details pages are enabled. Also it includes content pages and the home page.
And it respects the SEO and password protection options: if you switch off the SEO indexation or turn the site-wide password on, the sitemap won’t list your inner pages.
Get your website Sitemap URL
Your sitemap is available here: your website URL/sitemap.xml, for example: website.spread.name/sitemap.xml
And as usual, you can see the full sitemap URL listed in the robots.txt.
Adding your sitemap to Google Search Console
Log in to your Google Search Console and go to Sitemaps
Enter your sitemap URL (you can just add /sitemap.xml to your website URL)
Congrats! You've submitted your sitemap successfully!
