Site Map for Joomla!

Once you have a webmaster account with Google and your website is registered, there are a few things that we need to do.

One is for google to have a site-map of your website.

  1. You need to install this extension in to your Joomla website.
  2. Go to Components -> Xmap
  3. You will be asked to turn on a couple of components, do so.
    enable them visiting the extensions manager: com_content, com_weblinks
  4. Now have a look at this page to set things up.
    http://joomla.vargas.co.cr/en/documentation/18-xmap-2/103-create-a-site-map
  5. Once saved, make sure it is public.
  6. Click on XML Sitemap to bring up the xml page.
  7. Submit this page URL to Google under
    1. https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/
    2. Go to your site in the list
    3. Go to left hand menu: Site configuration -> Sitemaps
    4. Click on Add/Test Sitemap
    5. Test first and if there are no errors add it.

Getting rated is what it is about, we can help if this is too much.
