    Hi,

    Does anyone know if you must update your site map everytime you change or adjust your links?  Also, with that said do you have to update you site map when you add new pages?

    Thanks,
    Jason

  • If you want to make sure everything is being crawled in a timely manner you should keep your site map up to date.  When you site map changes it also alerts the crawlers that your site has been updated and so it may get back to your site and crawl it again sooner.

     

    It is not a guarantee you will get ranked higher or get crawled as quickly as you might like, but it is better than leaving the site map stagnant while the rest of your page is updating and changing.

     

    Cheers!
