Post-install instructions

Congratulations, you've installed Plone Google Sitemaps product from Quintagroup.

First step
To enable Google Sitemaps on your site, add a sitemap at Google Sitemap settings tab. You can add one of the following sitemap types: content, mobile or news. Different sitemap types index their own content and do not depend on other sitemaps.
Second step
Your site is already Google Sitemaps enabled. Check sitemap id , to see generated sitemap document(s) of your website. After adding Google Sitemap(s), check whether they where generated correctly. They should contain URLs of all published objects. If you see something that should not be indexed by Google, retract objects or exclude sections with robots.txt (that GoogleBot obeys).
Third step
Make Google know about your sitemap(s):
  1. go to Google Sitemaps Central (logging in / signing up as necessary)
  2. add your sitemap URL(s):
  3. This step will display urls to your sitemap(s) after adding it(them) in previous step(s)
It takes a while for your sitemap to be processed by Google. It usually processes the sitemap within 24 hours so do not expect your submission to be processed instantly.
