Adding a Sitemap to Loaded 7
Posted by on 23 April 2014 08:57 PM

Submitting a sitemap to Google is a great way to get your site indexed by their search engine.

As Google puts it:

Sitemaps are particularly helpful if:

  • Your site has dynamic content.
  • Your site has pages that aren't easily discovered by Googlebot during the crawl process—for example, pages featuring rich AJAX or images.
  • Your site is new and has few links to it. (Googlebot crawls the web by following links from one page to another, so if your site isn't well linked, it may be hard for us to discover it.)
  • Your site has a large archive of content pages that are not well linked to each other, or are not linked at all.

Loaded 7 already has rich SEO features built in, but adding the Sitemap just increases your sites visibility

Our partner Graith has built an add on that you can easily install and get your Sitemap submitted

Once this is complete you will get a verification and your site will now be on your dashboard.

This will let Google know about your site and it will be placed in queue for indexing.

Please note, there is no timetable for when this will occur. It generally happens within a week, but it could take longer.

However, submitting your Sitemap does accelerate your site getting crawled.
