 How to add a website map to Google Search Console?

In order to make Google Search Console life easier, it is a common practice to share  an address of the website map.

A website map is a file that contains a list of subpages, it informs Google and other internet engines about the  content order on a website.

Indexing search robots (e.g. Googlebot) read this file to index websites more successfully.

Every website created on website builder WebWave CMS has an automatically generated and updated map. 

You can find your map under the following address: http://YourSiteAddress.com/sitemap.xml

 

 

  1. To add website map, sign in to your Google Search Console account and on the left side select indexing and website map. 
  2. In "Add a new sitemap" section type "sitemap.xml" and "Submit"
     
    The website's map generated in WebWave CMS is being updated with every site publication.

    Thanks to that, Google robots will distinguish changes on your website successfully and any newly added subpages.
