Hi Rebecca

Would you like to use FTP to upload files? It is not possible to use FTP with Yola. If you would like to upload files, you would use the File Manager.

Take a look at the Uploading and adding files tutorial for more help on uploading files on Yola.

If you have something else in mind, please let us know what you would like to do and we'll be happy to help.

Thanks for the additional information, Rebecca. You can add your sitemap using Google Webmaster. Take a look at Tutorial: Google Webmaster for more details on how to do this.

Please ask us if you need any more help.

Thanks

I have had a look at the link and it says that google provide a sitemap on my behalf, which is great, as I have seen the one you have automatically done for me but what if I want to update this myself with additional information to up my ranking, can i manage the site map myself, say add another site map, if so then i was under the impression I would need the code for my website to do this and if so can I get my website code?.Please can I have further clarification on this. Many thanks.

Hi Rebecca,
Yola creates a .xml sitemap for you automatically and you can find the instructions for how to submit this to Google in the tutorial Nazlie linked to above. It's not possible to alter the sitemap Yola creates for you manually, I'm sorry I don't have better news for you on that.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Thank you Emmy for your reply, I fully appreciate what you are saying, however maybe I did not ask the question in the best way. I understand the sitemap automatically created by Yola is not able to be ammended. Is the sitemap Yola created for me not automatically submitted to google the first time I click my website to become live on the net?

However what I was getting at is, is it possible at all for myself to create a completely new site map and upload this and submit it to google? I know there are pleantly of sites free or otherwise that you can quite easily do this on and If Yola does not allow this, I will feel a little cheated that Yola does not want me to enhnace my website rankiing as much as I first thought.

Further information would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Rebecca

Thanks for the additional information. If I understand you correctly, then you would like to upload your own site map to your site.

It is possible to do this on Yola. Here are the steps to follow:

  1. You will first need to create a txt link for your site map. Google has some instructions on how to do it, here: Creating Sitemaps.

  2. Once you have your .txt file, upload it to the File Manager in your Yola site.

  3. Save and publish your site to the web.



Hope this is what you were looking to do. Let us know if you need more help with this.
