How do I create a sitemap?

A Sitemap consists of a list of pages belonging to your website and is used by search engines to find the pages within your site.

Web Designer and Designer Pro allow for the creation of a Sitemap which is uploaded to your server along with your web pages when publishing your website.

In order to create a Sitemap, select Web properties from the Utilities menu and then go to the Publish tab.  Enter the full URL of your published website in the Website URL field, then click Apply. 

When you publish your website, a file called Sitemap.xml will be created alongside your web pages.  In addition to the sitemap, a second file named robots.txt is also created.  The robots.txt file contains an entry to tell search engines the address of the Sitemap file to crawl.
