Sitemap not detected for domain - how can I add the sitemap?


#1

I’m new to Swiftype, and evaluating the demo version.

I’ve created a new engine and specified the domain, which is a subfolder on my site; e.g. example.co.uk/foo/bar/

There is a sitemap (XML) at that location, but it isn’t detected by the crawler - e.g. example.co.uk/foo/bar/Sitemap.xml

There doesn’t appear to be an option anywhere to manually choose a sitemap location.

So how do I tell the engine where to find the sitemap?

Hi Dave!

You can point the crawler to your sitemap by updating your domain’s robots.txt file. We’ve some additional information here: https://swiftype.com/documentation/sitemap

If you want to keep that URL private, reach out to us via the support form in your Swiftype Dashboard and we’ll guide you through some nifty options.
