What is an XML sitemap?

A sitemap (sometimes site map) is a list of the accessible pages on your website. An XML sitemap is used to tell search engines what pages are on your site, how they are organized, which pages are most important, and how often each page is updated.

Submitting a sitemap to the major search engines is an important step in optimizing your site for search. Providing a list of your pages isn’t a guarantee that they will all be shown in search results, but it definitely increases the chances.

Submit and succeed

Your sitemap can be found at yoursite.jimdo.com/sitemap.xml. Visit Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools to submit your XML sitemap to Google and Bing.

JimdoPro and JimdoBusiness customers can also include hidden pages in the XML sitemap. You can activate this feature by logging in to your site and clicking Settings > Website > XML Sitemap.
