What is a sitemap?

A sitemap is a document that links to every page on your site. Search engines like Google and Bing use sitemaps to discover and index pages on your site. You can learn further about it in our article What is a sitemap?.

By default, Shopify generates a sitemap file that includes all links to all of your pages. In some cases, you may want to remove a page from the sitemap and hide it from search engines.
