Meet Sitemap

The fact is that normally Google and Yandex will index a limited number of pages of the site and will do it when they themselves consider it necessary. But we can change this situation.

Google offered the opportunity to influence the indexing of your site - Google Sitemap.
We create a file in the. XML format with a list of files, the date of the last update, and the frequency of the update.

What does this give?

  • Google and Yandex will index all the specified pages of the site,
  • will do it quickly
  • and in a timely manner will update this information.
Having a Sitemap does not give you any advantage in ranking.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="">


  1. loc (location) – web page address, for example or, ... This tag must be filled in, others are optional.

  2. lastmod (last modified) - the date of the last modification of the page

  3. changefreq (change frequency) - tells Google how often you update your web page.
    Possible values are:
    1. never,
    2. weekly,
    3. daily,
    4. hourly,
    5. monthly,
    6. yearly.
    If you have a news site, then you have to post daily, so that there is no outdated information and was fresh. If you have a static site, then you need to expose never to clearly record your information in search engines.

  4. priority - sets the priority that Google will assign to a particular web page.
    Possible values ​​are:
    1. 0.0 is the lowest priority,
    2. 1.0 is the highest priority,
    3. 0.5 - medium priority
    Attention, the priority set does not raise your page higher or lower. If you put all the pages 1.0 then Google Will report an error in the code and it would be better to just skip this line.

How do I create a Google Sitemap?

Manually in a notebook is inconvenient even if you have a small website. This can be automated. If your site consists of 1000 pages or more, then creating Google Sitemap manually will be too long, dreary and inconvenient.
