The software comes with a built-in sitemap that your customers can view to easily find products or pages on your site without navigating through categories or menus. Customers reach this page at http://www.yoursite.com/sitemap.aspx  NOTE: see notes below for submitting a sitemap to search engines.

  • SiteMap.ShowDocuments 
  • SiteMap.ShowLibraries 
  • SiteMap.ShowManufacturers

You can also prevent individual topicsfrom appearing on the sitemap page, by unchecking the box next to Publish in Site Map.


Submitting a Sitemap to Search Engines

Search engines like Google will have some specific guidelines and best practices to follow for setting up a site map. ASPDotNetStorerfront does this for you and uses the XML option for formatting the sitemap. When submitting your site map to Google, or any search engine that required XML for indexing, use htttp://yourdomain.com/sitemapfeed


Submit your sitemap to Google

There are two different ways to make your sitemap available to Google:

  • Submit it to Google using the Search Console Sitemaps tool:
    ADD/TEST SITEMAP: http://example.com/sitemapfeed
  • Insert the following line anywhere in your robots.txt file, specifying the path to your sitemap:
    Sitemap: http://example.com/sitemapfeed
