Published in Joomla
To add a sitemap to your website so that search engines will find all your content, you need to first create an XML site map. Once you have that you will want to add it to your website robots file so that the search engine can find the site map and then follow all the like it provides.
 
In the root directory of your site, you should have a text file called robots.txt    If you don't already have one, you can simply create one. The put the word "site map:" (without the quotes) followed by the URL of your site map. Here is an example:
 
sitemap: http://www.neuropool.com/index.php?option=com_xmap&view=xml&tmpl=component&id=1
 
After that any search engines that visit your site will follow the robots.txt file and easily arrive at your sitemap.
