Indexing – Can we safely add pages to our Sitemap that Google has already indexed?

you absolutely should Add any pages already indexed to the sitemap, otherwise your sitemap will be incomplete. That's not negative, only positive.

A sitemap should Always contains the full list of URLs you want to see in the search, Period. Whether the URLs are already indexed in search engines, is irrelevant.

Do not forget that Google is the biggest player, but not the one just Player. Many small search engines and other web crawlers benefit from a complete and accurate sitemap.

SEO – Which sitemap format should be used for a video platform site like YouTube?

Based on YouTube robots.txt, the sitemap used by YouTube itself is a Sitemap. Granted, this may not be the only sitemap you use, just the ones you list in your robots.txt file.

Notice how the sitemap points to the subdirectory "yt". This subdirectory is an access to other YouTube sites such as "YouTube for Developers" and "YouTube Advertise" (with its own non-styled sitemap). You also do not bother to list the regular website that is so popular and popular. Honestly, the sitemap seems a bit random, unless it's a bigger strategy. Maybe they did not sustain it for a while.

An XML sitemap does not mean that everything in it is definitely indexed (this is due to the search engines). It also does not mean that what is not in it is not indexed. It is a suggestion for search engines to pay special attention to certain folders and files.

If you create an XML Sitemap, create it in the root directory (or near the root directory in an accessible folder), and list your most important pages (home page, category pages, etc.), the search engines will follow and index the contents of these folders ( like single videos, posts, etc.). Just make sure that these contents are noindexed / noofollows anywhere else in your preferences, and the Sitemap should be sufficient (or more, depending on your structure and strategy).

    You can create Sitemap using SEO tools. Otherwise, you can use sitemap auto-creation plugin to remove sitemap errors. Which errors are currently displayed in the Sitemap? Can you please give us a snapshot?

    Never use an automatic Sitemap creator. These set the page priorities to 0.5, which can destroy your ranking.

    You really have to think about whether you need a sitemap. Most websites do not do this.

    You've told Google that you have a sitemap, but Google can not find the sitemap.

Insight – Google says that an indexed page is not in the sitemap, even though it is in the sitemap

Google's search panel shows that my site is "indexed but not submitted to the sitemap". However, I have specified the URL in the sitemap. That was so long ago.

I have tested it https://www.example.com/annapurna-base-camp-trekking that's in sitemap but Google does not say it.

Is that why my site is not in the top list?

Enter the image description here

Should I post a custom sitemap for Baidu?

I am working on a multilingual website that contains Chinese as a supported language. I have a sitemap that contains links to all pages of the site.

My question is: Should I provide the Baidu-Bot with another version of the sitemap that only contains links to Chinese content? I ask specifically because I read somewhere that Baidu is only targeting Chinese content.

Your help is very welcome.

Only the homepage will be displayed in the sitemap

Just to clarify what I mean, there is probably a NULL legitimate reason that the code on this site is much more than:

Code (markup):

Apart from the broken "frame" idiocy – edit – THEY was saddled up. 9,500 markups, loading 21,000 – and scripttardery generates over 40,000, not even counting the size of the external scripts. The ONLY thing that even justifies the use of JavaScript is the smooth scrolling and slideshow, and any decent slideshow script should really not need more HTML than what I've just provided.

Even though I've once again seriously thought about making the huge silly slideshow that does not even fit the aspect ratio of most screens, instead I focus on placing CONTENT there, which reflects what the visitor can actually rely on – like learning about products and contact you. (instead of hiding the contact behind the nothing or under the fold)

If the site had been created this way, sitemap creators, search engines, and other non-visual UA (such as screen readers and braille readers) would be NULL if they were to move through that page. It would also load faster and use the caching of models with similar styles across pages, because we can move ALL presentation nonsense out of the markup into the style sheet where it belongs.

… even though you've just posted that it's not your website, would you like to see the kids gloves taken off and let me tell you what I REALLY think about the codebase?

Why do we have to add the sitemap link in our robots.txt file?

In this article, I'll try to explain the need to add a sitemap link in the robots.txt file. I do it for the sake of hope that it might be useful to the readers of this article so they do not waste too much time looking for useful reading.
What is a Sitemap?

Sitemap is a file that contains a list of URLs on our website where the URLs can be searched and indexed by the search engine (eg Google Search). In most cases it is intended that they will only be consumed by a search engine, so they do not have to be people friendly. but only naked link list. Normally, a sitemap file has the extension .xml, but it is also possible to use another extension like .html or .txt from Google.
For optimization purposes, the sitemap file is usually stored in the root directory. For example, at hxxp: //www.example.com/sitemap.xml. It may seem like an unimportant thing, but we could think of how to put it in the root of the crawl sitemap file (for example, hxxp: //www.example.com/sitemap.xml) and in a specific folder ( eg hxxp: //) runs faster. www.example.com/folder/../sitemap.xml). The faster way to crawl is likely to be when we save our sitemap file at the root of our website.
What is robots.txt?

Robots.txt is a text file that otherwise exists in the root of a Web site. In most cases this is the first target that is searched by a search engine robot, i. H. Googlebot. The file "Robots.txt" contains information on which folder and / or file the search engine crawler (ie Googlebot) allows to crawl.
Benefits of adding a sitemap file to the robots.text file

Transferring the sitemap to the search engine is usually a simple task. But in unusual conditions, if we can not send our Sitemap to a search engine for a reason, because the native language of the search engine is different from ours and it does not provide a translator or a different language version. Help the search engine crawler to open the sitemap file to find our website. Please read the file robots.txt. Another reason why we need to add the link to the sitemap file in the robots.txt file is that you give an unknown crawler (if any) an instruction for the existence of our sitemap file to make it our sitemap file Manual indexing can be self-indexing without necessity.
So this is the end of this article. I hope it is useful for you to improve the visibility of your website for the future visitor, and I do not forget to ask your forgiveness if there are many mistakes made by me in this article. Goodbye and good luck with your website!

What URL can I submit to the Google Search Console as a Sitemap for a Blogger blog?

In many articles, I have found that I can submit the blog of my Blogger blog by submitting atom.xml? redirect = false & start-index = 1 & max-results = 500
as my sitemap url. When I did this, I got a URL error stating that it could not be retrieved.

I also tried it example.com/sitemap.xml, None of it works. And the old search panel indicates that this is pending.

Now, Google automatically indexes part of my page randomly. So I have to manually enter all pages in the URL check and see if they are indexed and request the index. It takes so much time. It will be very helpful if I can use a sitemap.
