What is it ? And how to work with it ?

The Sitemaps protocol allows a webmaster to inform search engines about URLs on a website that are available for crawling.

Simply, a sitemap is a file that lists all the web pages of your website.

Possible tags :

  • urlset
  • url
  • loc
  • lastmod
  • changefreq
  • priority

The Protocol documentation is really easy and supported on different languages https://www.sitemaps.org
