What is an XML sitemap and why should you have one

A good XML sitemap acts as a roadmap of your website which leads Google to all your important pages. XML sitemaps can be good for SEO, as they allow Google to quickly find your essential website pages, even if your internal linking isn’t perfect. This post explains what XML sitemaps are and how they help you rank better.

Supported plugins

These are the plugins we use, support, and recommend on Shifter for achieving the best SEO sitemap results.

Other plugins and custom integrations

If the plugin you want to use is not featured in the recommended list Shifter may still support it by modifying the robots.txt file.

We recommend using the Virtual Robots.txt WordPress plugin for that. For Shifters static site generator to capture the sitemap file in your site build, you must add the absolute path of your sitemap to the robots.txt file.
