A sitemap is a file that contains all the required information about the files and pages on your course site, which Google uses while crawling your site. Site-map can be created both automatically and manually.
In this article, we show you how to build an automatic or manual sitemap.
Building the Site-map Automatically
A sitemap is automatically created and updated in your Knorish site. To access your sitemap, simply type in the URL of your site and add sitemap.xml.
Here's how you can do it
Sitemap URL Format: https://yoursite.com/sitemap.xml
To get this sitemap indexed, follow the steps listed below:
- Log into Build & Submit your Site map console
- Open Site-map Property
- Get the domain verification done, if not already done
- Select the verified Property
- Go to Sitemaps in Index
- Add a site-map URL
- Click Submit
You are done!
The above sitemap has been created manually as a Page wherein text has been added and hyperlinked to the page. If you need a sitemap like this, it is a simple process of writing down the names of the pages and then hyperlinking them to the text.

Note: This manual sitemap will not be updated automatically. Any changes in the page URLs later will have to be replicated here as well.
