XML sitemap generation and submission#
While search engines such as Google are adept at spidering your forum, you can offer a helping hand and get your site indexed in a more efficient fashion by building and submitting an XML sitemap: essentially a list of all the pages from your site that you want search engines to include.
Naturally, XenForo can do this for you.
Options controlling the manner in which the sitemap will be built, the content types that should be included and whether or not the sitemap should be automatically submitted to Google are available at Setup > Options > XML sitemap generation.
A further Extra sitemap URLs option allows you to list additional URLs that you want to have included in the automatically-generated sitemap.
