I want to create a sitemap file without the sitemap generator. That is a sitemap file with urls we manually add. I will edit sitemap each time when i add new page. So how to do this and use with my website.

  • See the following Google help doc: Build and submit a sitemap.

  • Why would you need a sitemap if you don't have hosting? Normally you'd place the sitemap in the root directory of your site, or specify the location in your robots.txt. They need to be publicly available regardless.

1 Answer 1

  1. Create a new document file like file.txt (In most OS you can do that by clicking on right button) and edit the extension from file.txt to file.xml or sitemap.xml, whatever you want.
  2. Add your all URL's in simple line. No need to add XML sitemap tags like <loc> <url> etc. Just plain absolute URL name like google use on their sitemap
  3. Upload your sitemap on your server, it can be anywhere, there is no any strict rules like www.example.com/my/folder/sitemap.xml you can also use .txt extension as I said like sitemap.txt
  4. If your server have cpanel, then you may have many editor to edit your file.xml, so just add your new URL anywhere (on top/bottom) and whenever you want.

P.S. please add your comment if I miss understood your question.
