The sitemap.xml file is usually saved in the root folder of your domain, e. g. Some websites, however, save their sitemap.xml file to a different location to hide them from their competitors. In that case, you should send your sitemap to search engines to make sure your sitemap can be found by their crawler bots. The best way to do this is to add your sitemap.xml to your robots.txt.

Our crawler checks the default root directory for the sitemap. So if you have multiple sitemaps, or if they are named differently or in a different directory, you should enter the exact URLs of your sitemaps in the project settings. First open the project settings and select the tab "Advanced Analysis". There you can select "What is analyzed" > "Sitemap URLs" to specify the sitemap URL(s).

Entering custom sitemap URLs is available from the Basic Suite onwards.
