How To Submit A Sitemap To Google Search Console || Shopify Help Center 2019


If you’re looking to expand the reach of your online store then consider submitting a sitemap. A sitemap is a list of all the pages on your website that a customer could navigate to starting from your homepage.

Submitting your store’s sitemap to Google Search Console helps Google find and index valuable pages on your site.This means that your store populates in Google search results, potentially bringing in more customers.

All Shopify stores automatically generate a sitemap.xml file that contains links to all your products, product images, pages, collections, and blog posts. Before you submit your sitemap, watch the video “how to verify your site with Google” linked below.
