XML attributes

Attribute Description
<urlset> required References the current protocol standard.
<url> required A parent XML tag for each URL.
The remaining tags are child elements of this tag.
<loc> required A URL of a webpage.
It must begin with the protocol (for example, HTTP) and end with a trailing slash if a
webserver requires it. This value must be less than 2,048 characters.
<lastmod> optional The last modified date of a sitemap. The date should be in W3C Datetime format. This
format allows to omit the time and use YYYY-MM-DD.

Notice that this tag has nothing to do with an "If-Modified-Since (304)" header that
a server can return, search engines can use information from both sources differently.
<changefreq> optional How frequently the page is likely to change. This value provides general information to
search engines and may not correlate exactly to how often they crawl the page.
Valid values are:

  • always
  • hourly
  • daily
  • weekly
  • monthly
  • yearly
  • never

The value "always" should be used to describe documents that change each time they
are accessed. The value "never" should be used to describe archived URLs.

Please note that the value of this tag is considered a hint and not a command. Even
though search engine crawlers may consider this information when making decisions,
they may crawl pages marked "hourly" less frequently than that, and they may crawl
pages marked "yearly" more frequently than that. Crawlers may periodically crawl
pages marked "never" so that they can handle unexpected changes to those pages.
<priority> optional The priority of this URL relative to other URLs on your site. Valid values range from 0.0
to 1.0. This value does not affect how your pages are compared to pages on other sites—
it only lets the search engines know which pages you deem most important for the

The default priority of a page is 0.5.

Please note that the priority you assign to a page is not likely to influence the position
of your URLs in a search engine's result pages. Search engines may use this information
when selecting between URLs on the same site, so you can use this tag to increase the
likelihood that your most important pages are present in a search index. Also, please
note that assigning a high priority to all of the URLs on your site is not likely to help you.

Since the priority is relative, it is only used to select between URLs on your site.
