XML Sitemap

A sitemap is a file which lists all of your sites urls and their priorities. These are used to inform search engines what urls on your site are available for crawling. This will not guarantee a page is indexed by a crawler but provides hints for the crawler on how to best crawl your site.

Zesty will automatically generate a sitemap.xml for every site and automatically set url crawl priority. All sitemaps are located at this URL:


Sitemap priorities can be overridden on a per page basis. From the page editor in the right hand column you can select a Sitemap Priority or even tell a browser not to crawl the specific page.
