The purpose of this article is to guide as how we can submit our sitemap to Google.
First of all, we need to sign into Google Search Console. Search Console will be your dashboard for testing and submitting updated sitemaps to Google so you can ensure Google is always aware of your latest pages published to your site.
So, to get started, add in your domain to the blank field. This website should just be the domain name, the parent URL to which all of your other web pages belong. Then click continue. Once your ownership is verified, click go to property. If your ownership isn’t verified, double check that you are logged into the correct Google account.
Now that you have added your domain into your Search Console account, the next step will be to add your sitemap. On the left hand bar under index, click sitemaps. To submit a new sitemap, you’ll simply need to type in the URL where your sitemap lives.
Adding a new sitemap requires you to add a string of text to the end of your website’s domain. Think of it like a tracking tag, allowing Google to examine all of the activity that takes place inside of your website. This sitemap tag is sitemap.xml and you want to add it to the end of your domain name.
Just for an example, if your domain is yourcompany.com, then you’ll tag it like this, yourcompany.com/sitemap.xml.
Submit your sitemap and you are all set to go. Depending on how much page authority you have already accumulated on Google, it might take some time to see the status of your submitted sitemap. Give it time. Google will eventually accept it. Now let’s walk through how to submit a sitemap to Bing or Yahoo.
First, sign into Bing webmaster tools. Under the my site’s page, enter the URL for your company and click add. In the add a sitemap field, enter your domain.com/sitemap.xml. Complete the rest of the required fields on the page, and then click save.
