The purpose of this overview document is to give you a highlight of the core improvements and fixes that were made in the Website Builder platform.
HIGHLIGHTS OF NEW FEATURES
BUILD AN XML SITEMAP
XML Sitemap setup is now present in a new separate tab under the Subdomain Settings of the website builder called XML Sitemap. Sitemaps allow users to notify search engines whenever a change takes place on the page.
The URLS of all the pages included in your website are present within this tab and divided into two sections;
Section 1: Included in XML Sitemap - this section displays all the pages that have the robots.txt set to index, follow, or index, nofollow.
Section 2: Excluded from XML Sitemap - this section displays all the pages that have the robots.txt set to noindex, nofollow; noindex, follow.
There are action items visible on the dashboard that allow updating the XML settings to the right of the URLs. You can edit (edit icon) the sitemap entry of the URL and this allows you to change the priority and the frequency. You can also exclude (minus icon) a URL from the sitemap.
Once the user makes the necessary changes/updates, they can select Save Changes and the system creates the XML sitemap URL and places it in the root directory where search engines can access it. The XML Sitemap URL gets displayed to the user so that it can be copied & pasted as needed.
To add ROBOTS.TXT files for your entire website (not just the individual pages), you can find a new section within the Custom Scripts tab for ROBOTS.TXT files. Here you can copy the text within your file and paste it into the appropriate section.
