XML Sitemap Checker

XML Sitemap checker uses sitemap files such as sitemap.xml, sitemap.xml.gz or sitemapindex.xml to check a website. It is a way for webmasters to tell search engines about available sites for crawling. A sitemap is an XML file that shows URLs of a site with extra metadata about them.




An XML sitemap lists URLs that can be crawled and may offer other information such as how often you update, when your last update occurred and importance. With an XML sitemap, search engines can index your website more accurately. Although it's been debated, we suggest that you submit an XML sitemap to Googleâ„¢ Webmasters Tools.

Use the sitemap validator tool to ensure that your sitemap is working correctly and can be read by search engine crawlers. You can either enter a URL of your sitemap or copy a sitemap document into the box to run the tool.
