When starting with an Avoori website, you might want to index it since day one, even on trial. If that’s the case, then we have good news for you, unlike other website builders, Avoori lets you index your trial website and connect it to Google search console and Google Analytics even on trial.
Avoori gives you the possibility to connect to GSC easily and create your own sitemap in a matter of minutes so you don’t have to create one yourself and go through all the technicalities. You can also choose which content should or should not be included on your sitemap by simply checking or unchecking some boxes.
Find your site map
Sitemaps can be easily found on your website if you’ve chosen the premium plans by going to your website, menu, SEO, and then by clicking on XML/HTML sitemap.
By going there, you’ll have different options to choose from by clicking on “view your sitemap”.
You’ll then be redirected to your sitemap which you can view without editing.
You can also access your sitemap directly by adding “/sitemap.xml” after your domain name.
If you still haven’t used a customized domain name for your website then you can access your domain name like this:
If you have a customized domain name, then accessing your domain name will be done using this kind of URL:
Making changes to your site map
You can only access your sitemap but you won’t be able to make changes to it. Your sitemap is created by Avoori depending on its settings. So, if you wish to make any changes in terms of what you want or won’t appear in it, then go to your settings and customize what should be included in your sitemap.
These changes might take some time before they show up on your sitemap.
What isn’t included
There are some information and data that will be left unincluded on your sitemap like:
- Pages that have password access in them like the admin page you use to access your website.
- Uploaded files on your websites.
- Block content or code blocks that might exist on your website.
- Very confidential information on your website.
- What you choose not to be included in your sitemap in your Avoori’s settings.
Site maps and search engines
Sitemaps are extremely important SEO-wise if you want to rank better on search engines and if you want your pages to be indexed.
Your sitemap will include the most important information about your website from pages to posts this way search engine crawlers will have an easier time crawling the pages and the posts on your website and make them appear on search engine pages.
The hierarchy in sitemaps when it comes to posts or pages doesn’t matter technically-speaking as in the end, all the pages will be indexed unless there is a problem on the said page.
But, still, there are some pages on your website that are very important like your home page and your about page and contact page. These are the most viewed ones hence why they’ll be the first to be indexed.
