You can submit your sitemap directly to Google via the Google Search Console. This makes it easier for Google to crawl and index your site.

To submit your sitemap:

  1. Select your site on your Google Search Console home page.
  2. Click Crawl.
  3. Click Sitemaps.
  5. Type sitemap.xml.
  6. Click Submit Sitemap.


  • We recommend submitting your sitemap after making any changes to your website. Such as creating new pages, or adding new images that impact your website.
  • In order to successfully submit your sitemap to Google, you must first verify your domain with Google Search Console. Once verified, Google will identify you as the site owner.
