Shopify sitemap

To ensure that your website is correctly indexed and ranked by search engines, it is necessary to create and submit a Shopify Sitemap. In addition to making it simpler for search engines to scan and index your material, a comprehensive sitemap can also help you identify issues with your website architecture. These issues may be blocking your pages from being found and ranked. We’ll demonstrate in this article how to rapidly generate a Shopify sitemap and get it certified by Google.

Your Shopify Sitemap Can Be Found Here

The sitemap files are accessible to all Shopify merchants by appending /sitemap.xml to the end of your domain.

For instance, if the domain of my store is, I can see my sitemap at

The parent sitemap, which links to sitemaps for items, collections, and sites, can be accessed using this URL.

The sitemap is automatically generated by Shopify in real time. You won’t be required to edit it manually, and you won’t be able to.

The sitemap files cannot be viewed this way in password-protected stores, it should be noted. If your website is password-protected, neither Google nor other sitemap readers can access it. So, don’t forget to remove your store password, if you have one, before submitting the Shopify sitemap.

Stores that use numerous domains for international sales will have unique sitemaps for each domain. You can set up redirects to the main site if you decide not to use these domains for foreign targeting. You will only need to submit one sitemap because you will have a universal one.

How To Submit The Shopify Sitemap To Search Engines

Different search engines are frequently used by people in various locations when looking for things online. The F4 of online search, which consists of Google, Bing, Yahoo, and Yandex, has remained largely constant throughout time. As a result, we’ll show you how to convince these 4 search engines to validate the sitemap for your Shopify Store.

You must sign in to Google Search Console to request that Google validate your sitemap. You must add domain properties and have your website verified with Google if you don’t already have an account on Search Console.

Check your website with Google

You can pick between 2 different property types in this case.

  • Domain: Google will monitor data from all URLs, including subdomains (m., www., etc.), and all protocols (HTTP or HTTPS). DNS validation is necessary for this.
  • URL Prefix: Only URLs under the supplied address and/or URLs using the chosen protocol will be used by Google to track data. This enables many verification options, including uploading an HTML file to your website. Your website’s home page should have a meta tag. Utilize your Google Analytics or Google Tag Manager account, and link a DNS record to Google.

However, you might try the meta tag option if you are completely new to Google Webmaster Tools.

Following the HTML tag’s copy:

  • Go to Shopify admin “Online Store” Themes.
  • Then select Actions. Edit the theme’s live code.
  • Click theme. Select Liquid from the Layout on the left sidebar and then paste the meta tag below the beginning tag.
  • Return to Search Console by clicking Save, then click Verify.

It often takes several minutes to finish the verification procedure. You must give yourself 15 minutes to fix any mistakes before submitting another verification.

Once your website has been validated, posting your sitemap is simple.

  • Select Sitemaps from the menu on the left.

Add A Shopify Sitemap To Bing And Yahoo

Verifying your website with Bing is the initial step, much like Google Search Console. Once your site has been verified by Google, it becomes much simpler. Importing your site from Google Search Console is an option.

Following the data connection between Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools:

  • On the menu on the left, select Sitemaps.
  • Look for and choose the Submit Sitemap button in the top right corner of the page.
  • Enter your sitemap in the following manner on the Submit sitemap popup:
  • Click “Submit” to complete.

Send A Shopify Sitemap To Yandex

The process of adding your website to Yandex Webmaster is comparable to Google’s verification process. The choices are an HTML file, a Meta tag, or a DNS record.

You can have your site registered on Yandex by following the procedures for Google Search Console verification. It’s critical to remember to double-check the Yandex meta tag because it can be mistaken for the Google Search Console meta tag.

  • Click Check to begin the verification process after adding the tag to the theme. liquid’s head> section.
  • Locate Indexing > Sitemap files in the left-hand menu when Yandex Webmaster has successfully integrated your Shopify Website.
  • Select Add after entering the XML Sitemap URL. I’m done now!
