Every Wix creation has an XML sitemap that assists in getting content recognized by search engines (and Google Analytics).

The sitemap is dynamically generated on our server and, therefore, is always up to date with any pages that you add or remove from your site.

 

You can view your sitemap by adding sitemap.xml to the end of your domain name. Example: mydomainname.com/sitemap.xml .

 

Note: If you cannot see the Sitemap, please make sure that you have selected to Allow search engines to find my site from within your site's SEO settings.

    All these comments dont really at all tell you how to add a sitemap to google webmaster its wix team tells you where to find it but doesn't tell you want to copy from sitemap.xml and paste it in google webmaster.

    Hi there, Quick question… In Google/Bing Webmaster Tools there is an option to submit a sitemap. Would this be as simple as copying at from the /sitemap.xml or is this something that is automatically done after publishing a Wix site? Just a bit confused.

    (I have ensured that the 'allow search engines to find your site' option is set to on and can see my XML file)

      Hi,

       

      Your site is crawled by Google in 1-3 months from the moment you publish it. However, your site isn't submitted to Google automatically.

      The hashbang symbols (#!) in the URL are part of the deep linking mechanism and cannot be removed or altered.

      This symbol is used for sites that utilize AJAX and is for better visibility within google.
      You can read more here .
      You can find more information about deep linking here .

    Hi

    Google Webmaster tools show an error when i try to add a sitemap.

    When i type in mydomain.com.au/sitemap.xml into google (firefox) url bar the following is shown

    'This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.'

    Would this have anything to do with google webmaster tools rejecting my sitemap?

    Thanks in advance

      Hi,

      What the "error" means is that there is no stylesheet information provided on how to display the page. Stylesheets are required when viewing an xml in a browser.It's just a warning not an error.There is nothing wrong structurally with the xml file.

       

      Best, Ritti

    Google doesn't recognize site map

    I have all of my SEO set properly and the site is marked to be found by search engines. But, Google says I don't have a site map. I see that WIX generates one for me in the background but Google seems unable to find it when my site is crawled. Ideas? Anyone? Thanks in advance.

      Hey,

       

      Thank you for contacting Wix support.

      Your Wix HTML5 website is built using HTML5 and AJAX technology. This has many benefits, such as animations on your page transitions, the ability to have your background, header and footer stay static while only the content changes, the ability to use all of the new HTML features as they are released, dynamic page sizing, optimization for mobile devices, etc.
       

      To support using this technology, the URL's of your website need to be built in the following manner:
