The sitemap.xml file

The site map file is a way to tell search engines about pages on your website that they might not otherwise discover, or to make sure that they do see all the pages on your website.

In simple terms, its like an index in a book, it tells the search engine where every page is located.


Where's the Sitemap file for my website?

The site map file for your site is located at /sitemap-xml, e.g.

www.yourdomain.com/sitemap-xml

(substitute yourdomain.com for your actual website address).

The sitemap file is generated automatically by the platform so that it includes every text page, category page, product page and all other relevant pages of your website.
