Automatically submit an additional sitemap to Google Console

After creating thousands of new pages in your WordPress site with MPG, you certainly want them to start performing well in SEO and making their way to the top of search engine rankings. One of the tactics to achieve that is to submit a sitemap index file to Google Search Console. Watch this quick video tutorial on how to create and submit your additional sitemap in seconds, with MPG.

Hi, I’m Laura with MPG, the Multiple Pages Generator WordPress plugin.

If you are watching this video it’s because you know that having multiple customized pages in your website is great for SEO and a plugin that generates those pages for you, is wonderful for saving hours of your time.

Now, more than just creating new pages, MPG also has its own sitemap generator that files those new pages and submits to search engines automatically.

Let’s go to your MPG dashboard. After you’ve already set up a template page, you’ll need to reselect your CSV file.

Then tick the box marked ‘Create sitemap file’.

A few more options will appear.

You can rename the file here, to make it easier to spot in the future.

And here you can limit the number of URLs per sitemap.

As of the time of this video, Google and Bing only allow up to 50.000 URLs per sitemap.

But if you created more pages than that, you can always submit more than one.

Google, for example, allows you to submit up to 500 sitemaps for each site in your account.

Then you can also determine how often search engines should revisit the URLs.

Next, decide if you want to add this sitemap to your robots exclusion standard (aka robots.txt).

And if you want to inform search engines about your newly created pages, simply tick this last box.

Click ‘Upload Settings’ and there you go.

Here you see the Success message and link to your sitemap, let’s take a look at it.

As you can see all new URLs are listed as a separate page and already includes the code with the frequency that search engines should revisit them.

It’s important to note that MPG doesn’t add to an existing sitemap, instead, it creates a sitemap only of the pages it generated, this way its easier to keep track of how well your website is performing with MPG.

Back in the MPG dashboard you also receive a confirmation that the submission to the search engines was successful.

This plugin offers a ton of fantastic features that help boost your website and your conversions. One of MPG’s main features is that you create your own individual URL for each new page. In other video tutorials, you can see how easy it is to update or edit the pages even after they are created.

    On the MPG plugin dashboard, make sure you set up the template page and select the CSV file with your variable data. Before you ‘Upload Settings’, select ‘Create sitemap file’.

    The default name for your file will be multipage-sitemap, you can easily change it to suit your business. You can also determine a maximum number of URLs per additional sitemap. Currently, Google and Bing have a limit of 50.000 per index file, but if you have more pages than that, you can easily submit more than one sitemap.
