What Is Generate Sitemap?

The Generate Sitemap button appears in the upper right menu of the Pages dashboard. 


Spectrum Client Managers use this feature to manually generate a new sitemap whenever the pages on your website change. Sitemaps serve as a directory for search engines and can help ensure that your website is being shown in search results. (You can think of it like giving Google the GPS coordinates of your website rather than letting the crawlers find it themselves.)

Google constantly crawls websites across the internet and updates sitemaps automatically, so technically, this manual generation is an unnecessary step. However, by updating the sitemap and submitting it to Google Search Console, we can ensure that your website pages are being indexed by Google as quickly as possible.
