Enter the Sitemaps

By importing sitemaps, you can skip the process of adding URLs one by one. Your sitemap, usually XML files, will contain all the links in the website you wish to import. In the examples below, I simply put the keyword, sitemap, next to my page’s url. As you can see, now we have the link to the sitemap of the page.

Copy and paste the URLs into the corresponding inputs. Once you are certain with the urls included, Click Add to confirm.

🚨 Note 🚨

Note that not all websites have sitemaps. One of the most common (and simple) ways to locate the XML sitemap of a website is to manually check. you need to do is enter your website URL in the browser and then add sitemap.xml at the end of the URL, e.g. If a sitemap (looks a like a XML file) shows up, then the website has a sitemap. There are more methods to locate your sitemap, please refer to this article to learn more.

Insert the URL of the sitemap

Before Submission

Once you have added the sitemap, SeaChat will automatically parse the XML file and extract the URLs. You can review the URLs before submitting them to your agent’s knowledge base.
