    If your website is in wordpress, dynamic xml sitemap file is beneficial for your website. it's updated automatically.

    Or use
    https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
    smallseotools.com/xml-sitemap-generator/
    https://xmlsitemapgenerator.org/

    tool for create static xml sitemap.

    These websites above help you create sitemap for those site that are not based in Wordpress CMS, if you're using Wordpress, you can use plugin called Yoast SEO to help you do that. It's totally automatically and save you time on doing it.

    Yes... it depends on which platform you are using. Basically there are 2 types of sitemap. HTML and XML....
    HTML you can simply create by adding all pages in hierarchy with hyperlinks. For XML sitemap ... there are various sitemap generators available online.

    Sitemap is an important thing .. so it is necessary to place all major URLs in it.

    Just to allude to some of the great points already share here. If you are using Wordpress, then you can follow this 3, straightforward steps:

    1. Instal Yoast Plugin onto your website
    2. Configure the Plugin
    3. Inform Google of your sitemap URL (you can do this through your Google webmaster tools)

    Good luck

    The best way to install Screaming Frog, for free version you can generate sitemap upto 500 pages, & paid version don't have the limits.
    But in case of multi-lingual sites you need to do it either manually or search any tool.

    Hi,

    You can create a sitemap from the online tool https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ else if website is creating on WordPress CMS then you can use plugin to create the sitemap.

    In WordPress website, you can install Yoast SEO plugin. It automatically generates sitemap.
    If your website is built on other formats then you can use tool to generate it.

    Not true. My website of over 9000 pages did not have a sitemap for 10 years, yet my search ranking was consistently on the first page of the search results. Now at 11000 pages with a sitemap and still consistently on the first page.

    Three ways:

    1) Hand code it yourself in your favorite text editor
    2) Use a ready made generator
    3) Write your own generator

    I chose #3 when I decided to use a sitemap.

    Depending on how many page your site has, most site map generators set a limit of 500 pages and then will charge you. If you are going to do SEO for clients for real, get A1 Sitemap Generator (costs). I've been using it for 5 years and the online reporting you also receive will find broken links, what it is linked to, etc. It will also create the 7 types of sitemaps currently being used including a mobile xml sitemap format.

    If you are using Wordpress, Yoast adds to much junk and creates errors. Just use A1 and use FTP to added the xml sitemap at the same level as the index.php file.
