How will this app benefit my store?
Managing your sitemap is very important for SEO reasons. A sitemap is a document full of links to pages, products, blog articles and other content that helps search engines crawl your store and index it into its search results. It helps with search engine optimisation by making it easier for search engines to organise and find content on your store.
You may not want all pages being indexed because there can be many different versions of the same page which causes duplicate content issues. Your store can be penalised and have its ranking lowered as a result of duplicate content. By using our app you can exclude pages from your sitemap and apply NoIndex, NoFollow meta tags to them so search engines stay away, safeguarding your stores rankings.
