What is the difference between the HTML sitemap and the XML sitemap?

seo – URL modified for a page indexed by Googlebot. Will redirect 301 from the old URL to the new one. But what to do with my sitemap?

I plan to change a URL for one of the pages of my site.

Example:

Of: https://www.example.com/old-post-slug

AT: https://www.example.com/new-post-slug

The point is, Google has already indexed the old URL: https://www.example.com/old-post-slug

And from these DOCs, we see that to avoid losing page ranking, we have to answer with a 301 - Moved permanently from the old URL pointing to the new URL.

QUESTION

I get that I should redirect (301) from the old URL to the new one. So when Google re-explores, it will see this change. But what should appear on my site map? The old URL or the new one? Or both?

I tend to think that it would be better to keep only the new URL on my sitemap. But what if Google crawls the new URL before seeing the redirect from the old one? Wouldn't the new page URL start as a new page (from a Google index point of view) with zero ranking points? How does Googlebot handle this? What is the recommended practice?

Is a sitemap required for 3 to 4 page Google websites? Will it change him at all?

I just uploaded my new website to Google. Before working on a sitemap, I was wondering if you could take a look and see if I needed a sitemap. Google has not yet indexed my site.

In addition, do sitemaps even have an SEO advantage in addition to making Google aware of your web pages? Adding a sitemap to my website would give me any advantage in the ranking or location of the website on Google search.

Thank you!

Find out if the website has a sitemap

Hi,

check the protocol as indicated on:
http://sitemaps.org/protocol.php

A good place to look is in the robots.txt file – an informed webmaster will include the path in their robots.txt file:

http://domain.com/robots.txt

or a good guess will always be

http://domain.com/sitemap.xml

I cannot generate an .XML sitemap via xml-sitemaps.com

I want to generate an XML sitemap for my website. Since the CMS of my website is PHP custom and the CMS of the blog is WordPress. Here is my website provided below:

Website: https://www.unifiedinfotech.net/
Blog: https://www.unifiedinfotech.net/blog/

My problem is that I am not able to generate an XML sitemap for my blog via https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/. I don't understand what is the reason behind this. Since the CMS of my website blog is WordPress, I installed the Yoast plugin where I can generate the sitemap for the blog.

I don't want to generate sitemaps via Yoast or manually, especially blog pages. There are over 250 blogs published on my site. I would like to generate a sitemap via xml-sitemaps.com. Will it be possible to generate other online tools? Why am I not able to generate the blog sitemap? An idea??

One last thing when I run the audit on SEMRUSH, SEO Powersuit, SF. There are almost 400 pages and blogs on my website. But the Semrush bot only covered 54 pages as well as SF and Powersuit.

I haven't done any nofollow, noindex on meta, robots or any other area and there are no broken links present on the site.

Can someone tell me what the problem is? why does my website crawl only 54 pages instead of 400 pages and how can i fix these?

Please watch an attached screenshot.

Google Search Console was unable to retrieve my XML Sitemap

I have an asp.net web form project.
To create a sitemap on this project, I didn't use standard asp.net Web.sitemap file in Visual Studio, like doing:

File menu -> New file -> Web.sitemap of Visual Studio.

Instead, I used the website below to create a sitemap:
https://www.xml-sitemaps.com

Here is my sitemap created:

sitemap – Sitemap: display of animations in a sitemap that the user must browse

I need to make a sitemap for a microsite.

To add some details, the site will focus on the increase in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). I'm still new enough to write sitemaps.

The idea is to keep the site "simple". The user will land on the site, he will be promoted to start a patient journey. They will then be presented with animations for 3 patients at different stages of their COPD condition. The three patient stories will be presented one after the other. After that they will be sent to a page which contains the information and links to other pages etc. The client wants the user to be able to replay each story afterwards if the user wishes.

My question is this: are there any special ways to show it or what would be the best way to present it?

At first, I thought I would make a branch of the landing page, list the three profiles, then on a second branch of the landing page, list the page with information. Although I think it covers all of the content, I don't think it's clear that the user will see the animations first.enter description of image here

Then I thought why not start with the landing page and then separate each patient profile branch according to the image below. I think it's a little clearer about the structure of the site. However, it seems like you have to go through a lot of pages to access the content and I wonder if it sounds more like a user feed than a sitemap. I could condense the patient profiles into one box and write down the contents.

Are there special ways to show it or a good way to show it?

Where is the best location for an XML sitemap for dynamic pages in Laravel

I am trying to create a dynamic sitemap for a learning site that contains a series of videos, but I am wondering where to place the sitemap on my shared hosting.
The Laravel app has different folders for logged in users, guests and administrators. Invited pages have the number of learning series that can be viewed there and logged in users have other attached series that they can see and also special subscription series.
Pages have a master.blade in the layout folder (resources / view / layouts) with guest app.blade, app.blade and app.blade admin users who retrieve their final layout from the master .blade. The master.blade only contains the meta portview tag and the token csrf tag, but the remaining tags and links are provided by the application panel that extends it.
So please from the details provided, where would be appropriate to add the sitemap for all series for guests and users and how can I make it dynamic to retrieve the details of the image and video

Google does not index the sitemap

Hi,
I have a big problem. Google does not index the sitemap, you can look at the picture

See attachment 247906
