SiteMaps

Hope this is in the right area.

My boss wants me to create a sitemap for our websites to upload to our Google Webmaster account. I have the account created, but I don't know how to create a sitemap.

I get the gist of what a sitemap is, but every avenue i keep going down to create one ends up being too complex for me to even understand and leaves me very frustrated. Is there a SIMPLE step by step process on how to create one?

Hi lasertag

Sure, happy to help.

What software are you using for your site? WordPress? Joomla? Something else?

Sorry, it is Joomla. Guess i should have mentioned that. I'm used to posting in the Joomla forum area...

No problem, lasertag :)

I'd recommend XMap: extensions.joomla.org/extensions/structu...gation/site-map/3066

That will automatically generate a sitemap that you can submit to Google Webmaster Tools.

We have this old tutorial on using XMap: www.ostraining.com/blog/joomla/create-a-...r-google-bing-yahoo/

We can do an updated version if you find that one confusing.
