How To Create A Sitemap For Your WordPress
Website?
A Sitemap or an XML Sitemap, you just read in the
title is not only a method to make your site
easy to navigate for users but for search engines
too. When users come to your site, they dont
just consume your content and go away, but
sometimes check out your website as a whole.
Often they read your article only to get
interested in your products and services. So you
need to ensure that whenever they want to check
out your offerings, they can find your product
page in the easily reachable section of your site.

Doing this will help in enhancing your users
experience and more importantly improve
conversions. The core of the matter is an XML or
Extensible Markup Language sitemap increases the
online visibility of your site. It tells your
users and search engines where all your
important content is located. To be clear, having
a sitemap on your WordPress website boosts your
SEO efforts, index your website in relevant
search results, and helps your site to rank on
the first page of Google. While this is not all
you need to know about an XML sitemap, we will
discuss it in detail in the later portion of this
blog. In todays article you will know how to
create an XML sitemap for your WordPress website.
But before you reach that part of content, I
would like to let you know about a customer

being said, now lets see what is an XML sitemap
and what it does What Is An XML Sitemap? To
let you comprehend whats an XML sitemap in the
easiest possible way, I would say it is just
like a roadmap of your WordPress website. Its
key role is to show crawlers where your sites
actual content is stored and how your website
has been structured.

  • Its not that crawlers cant index your site
    without a sitemap but its presence streamlines
    the workflow by boosting the indexing time of
    your site and helping it to appear in the right
    results.
  • Note that Google recommends having an XML sitemap
    for various reasons shown below
  • Helps small websites with just a little content
    to get on the top of SERP.
  • Websites having no external linking redirecting
    back to them may not get noticed by crawlers if
    a sitemap is not in place.
  • Larger websites with a huge amount of content may
    not be nicely indexed because of loads of
    content.
  • So, now you understand why a sitemap is an
    essential item for websites?
  • There is no denying the fact that a lot of
    strategies creation and implementation goes into
    optimizing your site for search engines and
    attaining the higher position. But when you add
    an XML sitemap on your website, it further
    enhances your results.

    lesser engagement? Just get in contact with our

    this blog post - how to create an XML sitemap
    for your WordPress website.

How To Create An XML Sitemap For WordPress
Sites Step 1 Install Yoast SEO Plugin A good
starting point for creating an XML sitemap is to
install the Yoast SEO plugin on your WordPress
website then make it ready for use. For doing
this, you need to head over Plugins gt Add New in
your WordPress dashboard. Type Yoast SEO in
the search box and then hit the Install Now
button. Once the installation gets completed,
click on Activate. Aside from this, if you want
to optimize your WordPress website for search
giants like Google, let us know so we can help.

Option Now to create an XML sitemap, you need to
navigate to SEO gt General in your WordPress
dashboard. Next, click the Features tab and
locate the XML Sitemaps in the listed options.
Once you have found it, simply turn it on and
allow the plugin to automatically create an XML
sitemap for your site. After that click on the
Save button and then whatever settings you have
done will be saved.

Do visitors spend very little time on your
website? This may happen due to a cluttered
design and lack of whitespace. We can implement
minimalistic design on your site so that your
visitors can easily read and understand the
content it has. To leverage our skills, all you
need to do is connect with our Los Angeles web
design company and describe your website
requirements. Step 3 See XML Sitemap of Your
WordPress Website In case you would like to view
the newly created XML sitemap, simply click on
the help icon next to XML sitemaps and then on
the blue text saying See the XML
sitemap. When you do this, your screen will
show something like this If you click on your
sitemap you will be able to see the included URLs
in it that crawlers will read, index and rank in
the correct search results. Isnt your website
driving the amount of traffic you expected
earlier? This might have been caused due to
targeting not so relevant keywords for your
niche. If you want to know what keywords you
should focus on, just reach out to experienced
SEO analysts of our Los Angeles web design
company and they will certainly help. Step 4
Make Sure All Your Posts And Pages Are Appearing
In Search Results To confirm it, you will have
to go to SEO gt Search Appearance and then click
on the tab saying Content Types. Once you have
done it, you need to click on the Media tab.

  • Here you can enable the feature Show Posts in
    search results and this will ensure all your
    web content is reflected in the SERP.
  • Step 5 Let Google Find Your XML Sitemap
  • After configuring your posts and pages to show up
    in the search results, its time to make Google
    find the sitemap of your WordPress website.
  • For doing this, you will have to add your XML
    sitemap to your Google Search Console account.
    First, head to your Google Search Console
    Account gt Sitemaps and then click on Add a new
    sitemap.
  • Now enter the URL of your sitemap in the space
    provided and click on Submit.
  • After your sitemap is added, click on the
    submitted sitemap and then you will see
    something like this
  • Here you will see a bunch of information such as
  • The exact count of discovered URLs
  • Sitemaps that are successfully read
  • The last read date of each sitemap
  • Status of the sitemap indexing

to index your site in the right search results
and give your SEO efforts a boost. This will help
you to achieve higher positions in the SERP. If
