You must have a sitemap if you’re using the Homestead website, sitebuilder program. If you are not familiar with this feature, you can get a tutorial that will help you create, install and register one with Google through a free webmaster’s account.

The technique of adding one is very simple once you understand how it is to be done. It is really just a six step process.

1) Create a file
2) Create an XML sitemap
3) Upload it into your Sitebuilder
4) Register with Google for a webmaster’s account
5) Add a special code in the advanced section of the properties editor that they provide to you.
6) Verify your website and your done

Here’s a link to a tutorial on how to add a Sitemap to a Homestead Website

This is not anything that is included in your hosting account. It is something that is entirely separate and must be updated every time you make a new post on your site. When I was learning how to add a sitemap to my Homestead website, I asked one of the technical support professionals at the company and they informed me that it must be updated with every new post.

The purpose of the sitemap is basically what the name implies and by having one it makes it easier for Google to crawl or spider your website.
