Make Sure Your Site Is Always on Google’s Radar

Use Squirrly’s Sitemap Generator and Settings to help your site get crawled and indexed by Google

Having different types of pages or content can help your WordPress sitebe more interesting and better support your marketing goals.

  • images
  • videos
  • custom taxonomies
  • custom post types
  • products – for eCommerce sites
  • Google News

However,  once you enable or add these elements to your site, there will be lots of data for search engine bots to crawl and index.

Bots need to:

  • know which pages are more relevant
  • see which of your content has changed
  • understand your site architecture

This is where a sitemap comes into play.

The Solution is to structure everything so that it looks neat and organized in Google’s “eyes”. The forms it comes in is an XML file which:

  • allows you to tally URLs which search engines can crawl and then index.
  • contains metadata – such as the date of last updates or the frequency of changes – for the respective URLs.

Why Do I Need an XML Sitemap Generator?

To Google, a structured website is extremely appealing and a standout among other billion sites out there.

It makes sense – a website which has a sitemap enabled will render its links in a more adequate list, thus sparing search engine bots loads of crawling time.

It’s like business – partners will more likely collaborate with you if they see you have neat processes and everything is in place. And you know that with search engines, you do need to cultivate a flawless partnership.

Next step: install the Squirrly SEO Plugin and enable its sitemap generator from the SEO Settings section:
