I created a site for an e-portfolio using the new Google Sites. Google sites automatically generates a sitemap for you at sites.google.com/yoursite/system/feeds/sitemap, which can then be submitted via Google's "Search Console". However, I migrated to a custom URL, and so I no longer have a sitemap at that location. Google Sites does not have FTP support, and applications such as FileZilla can't access it. I have heard that SML Cloud can make up for this, but I would prefer not to pay $5 a month just for a sitemap.

One idea I had is to put my sitemap on a different domain from my site, but I am not sure if this would even work, or where I could go about doing that. Also, if I need to finish making my website and then export it to a different host somehow to be able to use FTP, then I don't mind doing that either.

Is there any way to put a sitemap on my Google Sites site that has a custom domain?

  • Not familiar with Google sites but if your custom URL is directing to sites.google.com/yoursite, I guess you will find your Sitemap at your-url.com/system/feeds/sitemap and be able to send it in Search console.

  • Tried it just now, it didn’t work. Thanks though. I haven’t really woked on the issue lately, it’s not that important right now to add a. Sitemap, but I wanted to fix it now if it was an issue I would run into later. Commented May 27, 2019 at 5:15
