Once you have created a sitemap using All in One SEO, you will need to submit it to Google. To do this you will need to register your site with Google Search Console.

Once you have added your site as a property in Google Search Console, navigate to “Sitemaps” in the left-hand menu. You’ll see the Add a new sitemap box at the top of the screen.

Submitting a sitemap in Google Search Console

Enter the URL for your sitemap, click the Submit button and you are done.

You only need to enter the last part of the URL as the domain name is already filled out for you. The default names for the sitemaps created by All in One SEO are:

  • XML Sitemap:  sitemap.xml
  • Video Sitemap:  video-sitemap.xml 
  • News Sitemap:  news-sitemap.xml 
  • RSS Sitemap:  sitemap.rss 
Important: It can take a while for Google to process your sitemap. The length of time they take is entirely up to them and you cannot force them to process your sitemap any faster, so please be patient.
Note: The XML Sitemap created by All in One SEO automatically includes all your images, so it means you don’t have to submit a separate Image Sitemap.
