PowerPoint 演示文稿:

Are you a blogger or webmaster who regularly updates his website with great content? However, have you ever wondered whether all that material is being discovered by your audience and search engines or not? This is where sitemaps turn out to be useful. They provide a complete list of all the pages of your interface to visitors and search engines. Here we are discussing the way for creating WordPress XML sitemap. Let’s dive into the topic to know more about these documents.

In the beginning, sitemaps were used as a navigation aid since web design had not evolved to offer convenient navigation links to users. However, these documents are still important when we have versatile ways of displaying navigation links. There are two kinds of sitemaps namely, HTML and XML. The former is a separate page on a website that tells human visitors the location of various pages. The inclusion of this sitemap makes your interface more user-friendly. An XML sitemap is primarily meant for search engines. It contains URLs of all the relevant pages apart from some metadata. In this tutorial, we are focusing only on the XML sitemap. Background

As mentioned before, an XML sitemap is a collection of all the URLs of different pages of a website that are accessible to all the users. It provides a map to search engines that they can refer to for crawling all your pages. You can use sitemaps to convey to search engines which pages are more important than others. The document also helps search engines know how often an interface is updated. A sitemap looks like the one shown in the image below. What Is An XML Sitemap?

They do not directly affect your interface’s SERP rankings but they do improve its crawling. They help search engine bots to crawl your pages faster than they would have done in the absence of the document. This means that all the fresh content of your interface also gets indexed quickly. You can also add metadata to prioritize the crawling of specific pages of your interface. Why Are XML Sitemaps Needed?
