Hello Steve,

Yola creates a .xml sitemap for you to submit to Google. Here is a link to a tutorial which will step you through the process of verifying your site with Google Webmaster and submitting a sitemap: Google Webmaster & Submitting a Sitemap.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

if you already know the route to submit a sitemap, the short answer is www.wirral-fisheries.com/sitemap.xml - it's actually viewable, if you view it, it basically says every page your site consists of, the last date that page was modified, the modified frequency and the priority (I'm not exactly sure what the priority is besides my homepage is 1.0 and every other page is 0.5).

but if you need to know certain information, you can view the sitemap. Every once in awhile I view my sitemap and (ctrl+f) to find a page, then determine when it was last modified, it sometimes comes in handy.
