Adding sitemap into Google Search Control

  • Hi,

    I created a sitemap yesterday, I have two questions:
    Should I add it to Google Search control trough their panel?
    Is it possible to create subcategories so it becomes easier for Google to determine which one is the Homepage/Mainpage?

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    To submit your sitemap, just head over to your GSC > Sitemaps and submit only your main sitemap( */sitemap_index.xml as shown here: Google will crawl and update all other sitemaps.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.


    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Thanks Michael, I cannot see the screenshot though, the quality is too low. Am I supposed to add it as in the Sensitive data screenshot?

    Thanks in advance,


    Sorry about the quality of the screenshot.

    The screenshot you have share yourself is correct. Just submit your main sitemap and give it sometime for Google to crawl and update other related post/pages sitemaps. If you face any issues in the process let us know and we will assist you.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
