    Hello! Q: I am creating my webpage in zoho but I have some doubts:
    1. In SEO session, crawlers (User-agent:) What does it mean? What should I fill here?
    2. Also, I think don't have a defined sitemap yet...when I try to see it, I see the following: <sitemapindex xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/siteindex.xsd">

    Hi Ericka,

    I believe that you have completed your DMCA course before starting the project.

    In case you have not then you are requested to complete it before attempting the project. You would have a good understanding of the concepts and you would be able to implement in the project.

    However, please find the answer below:

    1. Robot text directs the web crawlers of various search engines to index the web content in order to categorize search results. The format is, Disallow: /pagename/

    2. Sitemap: It provides easy way of creating sitemap.xml for search engines to crawl the pages with the settings you add. You can also set priority level for each page and change the frequency value. Note: Priority and frequency setting are not specific to Zoho Sites. This can be decided by the search engines too.


    The priority lets the search engines know which pages you seem most important for the crawlers. Search engines may use this information when selecting between URLs on the same site, so you can use this tag to increase the possiblility of very important pages to be present in a search index.

    Note: Assigning a high priority to all of the URLs on your site is not likely to help you. Since the priority is relative, it is only used to select between URLs on your site.


    Frequency value provides general information to search engines and may not correlate exactly as to how often they crawl the page. The frequency value always should be used to describe documents that change each time they are accessed. The value never should be used to describe archived URLs.

    Note: The value of this tag is considered a hint and not a command. Even though search engine crawlers may consider this information when making decisions, they may crawl pages marked "hourly" less frequently than that, and they may crawl pages marked "yearly" more frequently than that. Crawlers may periodically crawl pages marked "never" so that they can handle unexpected changes to those pages.
