How to export and upload the Sitemap file to Google

Post by jorisdecorte » Fri Jan 25, 2019 12:27 pm

Hi All,

Im new to this forum and also new to Joomla!, therefore might this question already be answered but i couldnt find it in here.

We've recently published our site but it doesnt show up in Google. Google gives me the advise to upload a Sitemap file to Google. My question is, how do i get this file ?

Thanks in advance,

Joris

Goto https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
Then upload the generated sitemap to your sites root.
Or install Jsitemap pro or similar from the JED.
Ignore the wordpress spam in the post above.

Try OSMap. Generates the sitemaps from within your Joomla site. Just copy and paste the generated XML to Google's Console

You can simply create your own sitemap using free online services. you can also use screamfrog to create a sitemap. just create a sitemap and upload it to the root directory. and then submit to the webmaster tools,

Sitemap can be directly submitted to Google through the following simple steps:
1) Select your site on your Google Search Console home page.
2) Click Sitemaps from the menu on the left side.
3)Type sitemap.xml in the text field next to your domain to save the file.
4) Click on Submit.

Follow the below steps:
Step 1: Use the tool (https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/) to generate the xml sitemap of your site
Step 2: Sign in to your Google Webmaster Tools
Step 3: Select your website
Step 4: In the left sidebar, click Crawl and then Sitemaps
Step 5: Remove outdated or invalid sitemaps (if any) like sitemap.xml
Step 5: Click the Add/Test Sitemap button in the top right
Step 6: Enter sitemap_index.xml into the text box that appears
Step 7: Click 'Submit'

That's it. You have generated a sitemap.xml file & uploaded it to your search console.
