How to Add a Sitemap

Introduction

This article will guide you on how to add your sitemap for each page.

A sitemap is a file (XML in most cases) that presents the general architecture of a website. Its main purpose is to help search engines find all the pages (URLs) to index. It allows for prioritization, in the form of URL links, of the resources and contents proposed by the site, a bit like a table of contents. For each link, it contains additional information, such as the dates of updates or the importance of a page in relation to the others.

Note : The PlanetHoster Glossary contains explanations on multiple topics and can be consulted to clarify certain terms.
