Create A Sitemap For Your Website Using a free 3rd Party Website
4 TIPS to Improve Search for Your Images

Artists: Submit Your Sitemap to Google

Free Sitemap GeneratorIn the last post we went over instructions for creating a Sitemap using a 3rd party website.

Creating and submitting a Sitemap helps search engines crawl your site. If there is anything that I can do to  insure that more pages of my site are found ....I'm doing it!  Learning how to use these Google Webmaster Tools is as important as making your art or craft.

For this post you need your
Sitemap URL to submit it to Google (or any other search engine such as Bing.)

If you aren't sure which file is your sitemap file....the file name should look like something like this example:   http://www.yourwebsite.com/sitemap.xml

I found my sitemap URL (but just in case) tested it in a browser.
To test your sitemap if you aren't sure that you're doing this right (like me.)
Copy the URL and paste it in your browser.

If you CLICK on the link below....it will show you what my Sitemap looks like.  http://www.harriete-estel-berman.info/sitemap.xml

Sitemaps looks like nothing except code and URLs.
