While submitting your Sitemap to search engines is not necessary, it does enable you to get more information about your store from search engine webmaster tools.

Once you have enabled the Sitemap feature and published the Store Editor (to generate the sitemap.xml file), you can then submit your Sitemap file to Google and Yahoo. First copy the link to your Sitemap file and then go to the search engines to add the Sitemap.

To add your sitemap to Google :

  1.     From the Search Engines page, copy the link to your Sitemap file.
  2.     Sign in to your Google account.
  3.     Enter the URL for your site in the Add Site field (e.g., http://www.yourdomain.com)
  4.     Click OK.
  5.     Click Add a Sitemap.
  6.     Select General Web Sitemap.
  7.     Select all of the checkboxes and paste or type the URL to your sitemap.xml file.
  8.     Click Add Web Sitemap.

To add your sitemap to Yahoo and Bing :

  1.     From the Search Engines page, copy the link to your Sitemap file.
  2.     Sign in to your Bing Webmaster Tools account.
  3.     On the My Sites page, enter the URL for your site (e.g., http://www.papayadayspa.com) and click the Add button.
  4.     Enter the URL for your sitemap file in the Add a sitemap field, and complete the rest of the required fields on the page.
  5.     Click the Save button.
