Submit sitemap to search engines

A sitemap is a list of all active pages on your website that help search engines index your website easily. For Professional and Elite members, Point2 automatically generates a sitemap and places it within the robots.txt file in the header of your website for indexing by search engines such as Google and Bing.

There are two types of sitemaps, HTML and XML. HTML and XML sitemaps are generated for you. The HTML version of the sitemap is picked up by search engines because we link to them from the site. 

The HTML sitemap is visible through a link at the bottom of the website.  To locate the HTML sitemap go to your Point2 website and scroll to the bottom of the page. You have the option as to whether you want the page or not. If you choose to disable it you can do so by following these instructions:

  • Sign in to your Point2 account at www.point2.com
  • Click Websites from the top menu
  • Click Agent Site
  • Click Edit in the Agent Site section
  • Click the Manage Website drop down at the top

  • Click Sitemaps 
  • Uncheck Site Map
  • Click Done

The XML sitemap is not automatically submitted for you. You would need to do this through your Google Webmaster account if you have one. The XML sitemap is automatically generated as a link by Point2, however it's not surfaced anywhere in your Point2 account.  

The link to submit is your website address with /sitemap.xml.gz at the end.  

For example:

www.yourdomain.com/sitemap.xml.gz

OR

http://yourname.point2agent.com/sitemap.xml.gz
