Sitemap (sitemap.xml) is a file with a list of website pages. Sitemap informs search engines of the pages you'd like to index, when they were last updated, how often they should be re-crawled and their priority against other pages of your website. Sitemap.xml helps web crawlers scan all pages of your website and correctly determine the webpage priority.

The tool includes a sitemap generator, a sitemap upload, and a sitemap auto-update feature.

• Use a sitemap upload and a sitemap autorefresh combined with the related audit tools: Website Audit tool, Index checker, and Website Watcher.
