- Publish your website with a proper sitemap
— Sitemaps matter because they are structured for search engine bots to find each of your precious pages and crawl them. If your pages are invisible and cannot be found via the menu or deep in your blog — well that is a lot of wasted effort.
Make sure you have a /sitemap.xml file or a plugin that generates all of those links for you so you can provide that later when time is ready to show off your work!WordPress users can easily generate a sitemap with a plugins such as YOAST or SmartCrawler Pro (Smartcrawler Pro included in our WP Hosting).
