Import Individual Sitemaps for each country/language
If you have individual XML sitemaps for each country, you can add them via the Auto Update function that is available from the main heading. This function should have already been set up when the project was created. You can update the sources at any time.
Step 1 – Click Auto Updates
You will see “Auto Update” from the main header. Click this link to open the Auto Update Management screen.
Step 2 – Click the Sitemaps Tab
If you are adding XML sitemaps, click the Sitemaps tab to open the sitemaps box. If you are adding an XML SItemap Index file, click that tab and go to Step 3.
Step 3 – Paste Sitemaps
Paste any new XML sitemaps into the box. Add one XML sitemap per row. If you need to remove an old source files, simply delete them from the box. When you add sitemap files from Dropbox, ensure you change the ending extension from -0 to -1. Then go to Step 4.
Step 4 – Import and/or Update the Project
There are two options once you have added your new XML sitemaps to the field.
Option 1 – Add to Import Update (Don’t Update Project)
With this option, you can add or remove XML sitemaps and save them to the import process. It will save the new sitemap XML URLs and import them during the next scheduled update. This option is good if the project does not need to be updated.
Action: Click the blue UPDATE button at the bottom to add the link(s) and files to the import system. You can always manually run them using the “Run” option on the main Auto Update screen.
Option 2 – Import/Add XML Sitemaps and Rebuild Now
With this option, you will save the XML sitemap URLs to the system AND rebuild the project. This step will trigger the system to go to each XML sitemap and import them.
Action: Click the blue “Update and Run” button to start the import and rebuild process.
