Project Description

DESCRIPTION

Take the actionables that were discussed in "Take Action" and examine your website’s sitemaps to ensure that they’re correct.

ASSIGNMENT
Put your Tech SEO knowledge into action through looking at your sitemap and gaining an understanding of your website’s XML sitemap performance. Start by checking to see if your site has an xml sitemap. If you don’t, one can easily be created through the Yoast WordPress plug-in.

Clean your sitemap up by ensure that there aren’t any pages in the sitemap that shouldn’t be there, such as empty pages, redirects, or 404s. Once everything is cleaned-up, then it can be submitted to Google & Bing.

If you have any questions about your sitemap, let me know and I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
