    Does Product Pages Should Be In Sitemap.XML File ?


    Hello Experts,

    I have a query related sitemap and indexing. I have a eCommerce retail portal so I just want to know should
    I submit my product URL's in sitemap or not.

    As right now my all product URL's is submitted in sitemap.xml file. Have a look 123weddingcards.com/sitemap.xml
    Is there any harm to submit product URL's in sitemap.xml. Should I submit only category pages in sitemaps?

    Please provide your views.

    yes you can definitely submit the products in sitemap. It will improve your site ranking and even have chance to get product list in google

    A site map will NOT advance your rankings, if it was that easy everyone would do it and that's all that would be needed, all a site map does is show google what to spider and that doesn't always work, IBL works much better and adds a kick to it.

    Sitemap will show all the urls in single page, it will helpful to crawl simply, but sitemap will not helps in search engine rankings.

    Enough already... An XML sitemap will allow google crawler easy access to your urls but it is not necessary and it will not improve rankings...
    Thread Closed (it's becoming a spam-fest)!
