A sitemap is a great thing to promote the proper links to search engines. So let’s see how such a sitemap is looking like.

This is a general sitemap linking to some others because there should be a limit of 50.000 links per sitemap:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sitemapindex xmlns="">

And here the sitemap file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="">

Details can be found at Build a sitemap.

You can (should) also add the sitemap to your robots.txt file. Be aware that it should be a full URL (unlike the one I used over here):

Sitemap: /sitemap.xml
User-agent: *
Allow: /
