Some web pages can present indexing and structure problems due to the lack of a Sitemap. Google is usually able to crawl a website with relative ease. For example, just put a link from Google Plus or Blogger for the robots to follow it and end up indexing it.
However, we do not always pay due attention to how the pages of our site are being indexed. It's no longer just about creating content. It's about making sure Googlebot can crawl that content with ease. It is the main reason for which Sitemaps will serve us.
What is a Sitemap? Little more or less, it becomes a map of your website, where the link to each and every url comes. But it also provides information to Googlebot and other search robots about a variety of things:
The frequency with which you update your pages. On the last date, the urls were modified. The importance or relevance of each of these pages so that they appear well structured.
Sitemaps are usually created through a generally.XML file, files that follow a Sitemaps protocol with labels other than HTML. In many cases, we will schedule a feed where new addresses are automatically added.
Google webmaster tools give us the opportunity to create one, but there are also plugins like the Google Sitemap Generator to develop it in the WordPress CMS.
Search robots follow the criteria to crawl a website. Crawlers enter the page and read the code, but sometimes there are lost pages that either take a long time to index or do not meet the conditions for it to be done automatically.
