How to Update Sitemaps After You Change Your Content

Updating sitemaps once you change your content is very important in Google. The HTML sitemaps will speed up the process when Google looks for your sitemap. Google will guide you where to look for the most important pages on the XML website and rank them based on their priority. Whenever you make small changes in your site, please be sure you have resubmitted your sitemap. If you are going to do major changes then create a temporary sitemap that contains all of your original pages that redirect to their new location.

Key Takeaways:

  • If you make a small change to your page then you can choose whether it is necessary to resubmit the page.
  • When making a change to URL in a short time then it will help to use google.
  • Every time you make changes you will see your errors and your crawl stat jump up.

“An HTML sitemap will slightly speed up that process because Google’s crawler looks for an HTML sitemap when it comes to your site.”
