I have a rare error. I have translated my website in to multiple languages, using Magento, like www.example.com/de Now, I have added www.example.com/de in Search console and I want to send the sitemap, Google tells me to add the name of the sitemap that the page has to have structure of www.example.com/de/... but I can't do that because I have to create a folder in the root /de and if I go to www.example.com/de I see an error 403. Please suggest how I could do this, Thanks!
Google allows you to add multiple sitemaps for each domain. You are not required to have these maps in different sub-folders. You will need to create ones with different names for each language. for example
- In your Magento admin navigate to Catalog -> Google Sitemap
Create a sitemap with different names for each language. A language is usually associated with a store view. For example:
Filename => sitemap-de.xml Path => / Store View => German
Add the sitemap for each language to your Google Search Console. In our example it would be
Magento can update your sitemap regularly. Go to System > Configuration > Catalog > Google Sitemap > Generation Settings. Enable Generation and set the frequency as desired.
