XML stands for Extensible Markup Language (XML), in technical terms. It is a standard file format readable by the user, consumable by search engines and other data-munching applications such as feed readers.
A Sitemap XML is, in the simplest of terms, a document that lets Google and other major search engines understand your website better when browsing it.
It lists a site's URLs (pages) in a structured way allowing you (the webmaster) to provide detailed information for each URL.
It varies from details such as:
whenever the page was updated
How often does it change
how it applies to other site URLs
It is a level of importance to the web as a whole, etc.
XML is particularly crucial if: your website is not well organized or well linked (internal links)
If The site is new and hasn't many external links.
Some pages are flexibly developed on your site (as is the case with some eCommerce websites).
Your site is extensive and has a lot of archived material that might not be well-linked. An example is a user-generated content site, such as job boards, whose posts will be archived (and forgotten) after some time.
Your website is just an ordinary website, but the search engines are diligent in indexing it correctly.
XML maps could also be helpful when optimizing search engines (SEO).
So let's run the necessary steps you need to adapt to make the most productive use of the tool: Step #1: Insert your website URL in the XML Sitemap Generator section.
Phase #2: Define the mandatory custom parameters as you prefer. The parameters include the number of pages to crawl, the duration of the update, the default priority, and the dates.
Step #3: Tap the "Generate Sitemap" button after you have defined the parameters you want.
They will take a few minutes to evaluate your request, crawl your web, and create a sitemap based on the information that you have provided.
Step #4: Upon completion of the process, the tool will present you with the specifics of the sitemap, including the number of pages, the list of broken links, the content of XML files, and the path to the sitemap file.
Step #5: Next, to open the sitemap file in a.xml format, click on "Save as XML File."
Step #6: Next, continue to your website's root directory and put the sitemap.xml file in the root folder for the domain. If several sitemaps are co-opted in a sitemap.zip file, unpack it and add all sitemap files to your website's root directory.
Step #7: Go to your Google Search Console (formerly Google Webmaster Tools) account as an additional step, and add your sitemap URL.
