Tip of the week: Creating a site map for your Help Center

A site map is a helpful file that lets Google and other search engines intelligently crawl your site. Currently, Help Center doesn’t create site maps automatically. But setting one up is easy. This tip of the week describes how to manually create and submit a site map to Google for your Help Center.

We will cover how to create a site map in four steps:

  1. Creating a site map
  2. Saving your site map in Help Center
  3. Submitting your site map to Google Webmaster Tools
  4. Schedule weekly site map updates

Creating and submitting your first site map might take a bit of time, but once you get comfortable with the process, it should only take you a few minutes each week.
