A Sitemap is designed to help both users and search engines navigate your site.


A Sitemap is made up of links, typically to the pages that make up your website. You can organize your Sitemap by using columns and items. The links in your Sitemap are items and arranging them in columns will line your items up side-by-side. You can name your columns to serve as headers for a group of items.

COLUMN

Start building your sitemap by adding a new column.

 

You can rename the column by pressing the pencil icon to the left of "Untitled."

NEW ITEM

Next, press new item to create a link.

 

The label for your item is what will appear on your site for visitors to click on. Your selections under LINK TO determines where a user will go upon clicking on your item's label. You can choose to connect your item to a variety of areas.

Link options include:

NONE: Your item would not be linked anywhere.

EXTERNAL LINK:  Direct your clients to helpful resources that exist in a place other than your website.

PAGE: Direct your visitors to an existing web page on your website.

FORM: 
Connect to a Custom Form you have created in your FORM BUILDER.

MARKETING: 
Direct users to a Campaign or Landing Page you have created in the MARKETING tool.

FILE: 
Allow users to open a PDF, JPG, PNG, or GIF file that has been uploaded to the DOCUMENTS area of your account's FILES section.

PHONE: 
Connecting your item to a phone number allows users to quickly click to call you.

EMAIL: 
Connecting your item to an email address opens a user's default mail client to easily send you an email.

ADDRESS: 
Allow users to find where you are by opening an address in Google Maps.

VIDEO: 
Add a video embed code obtained from YouTube or Vimeo to play in a light-box.

BACKGROUND

You can customize a background image behind your block to be different from your website background.


PRO TIP!

Use your Sitemap to highlight the important pages from your menu, such as the Contact page, or any current promotions.
