How to ping your sitemap using AllFetch SEO: Image Optimizer

A sitemap is a file where you provide information about the pages, videos, and other files on your site, and the relationships between them. Pinging sitemap can improve SEO practices because it makes things easier for search engines to find all the contents that need to be discovered and ranked on your website.

To start, click Ping Sitemap to ping your shop’s sitemap to Google

The sitemap of your shop will be shown on the right side of the form

In case your store is password-protected, there will be a notification that says “Your shop is under password protection. Cannot get the sitemap information. Please disable storefront password.”
