How to add a sitemap to site?


  • Question

I'd like to submit a sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools to improve my site's google ranking. GWT requires the sitemap to be stored on the website and the submission of a URL, instead of just directly submitting the file. Is it possible to store an .xml sitemap file on my Drupal Cloud site?


Use the File Browser to upload your XML file to a directory on your site, then give Google Webmaster Tools the URL to that file.

The easiest way to get to the File Browser is by going to your /user page, where you will see a tab for it.

For example, if you have a file named sitemap.xml, and you upload it to the root level in the File Browser, its URL will be "sites/default/files/sitemap.xml". If you put it into the Documents folder, the location will be "sites/default/files/documents/sitemap.xml".

Go to Google Webmaster Tools, click Add/Test Sitemap, and paste in that location.


That worked great, thanks!
