Google Sitemaps 101

Part 7 of 12 in series Page Tab

Play VideoWeb Studio automatically generates an XML Sitemap of your website when it is published. This sitemap is updated every time you upload a change to your site, so it always stays current. The only thing you need to do to take full advantage of this transparent feature is enter your site URL into the Website Properties dialog box (located at the right-hand side of the Caption Bar). Enter your URL into the Website Address field in the General tab of the box. If you upload your site before entering your URL into the Website Properties box, Web Studio will prompt you to enter it before you upload. It is recommended that you enter your URL, since you’ll gain all the benefits that a sitemap will bring.

Having a Google sitemap will help increase your search engine rankings and allow the internet to work harder for you. To get the most mileage out of Webstudio’s automatically generated sitemaps, you should sign up for an account with Google Webmaster Tools. This is where you can, among other things, submit your site to Google, letting them know your Sitemap address. Once your site (and sitemap) is submitted, you’ll be on your way to better search engine rankings. Be sure to check out the other tools on the left side of the dashboard.
