Here’s the URL to my Sitemap. Designer Developer sitemap

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<urlset xmlns=”http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9″>
<url>
<loc>https://thedesignerdeveloper.com/</loc>
<lastmod>2019-05-10</lastmod>
<priority>1</priority>
</url>
<url>
<loc>https://thedesignerdeveloper.com/web-developer</loc>
<lastmod>2019-05-10</lastmod>
<priority>1</priority>
</url>
</urlset>

The <?xml> and <urlset> will be the same for every website.

All you need to modify for yours is what goes in between <loc></loc>, <lastmod></lastmod>, and <priority></priority>.

<loc> stands for location.
<lastmod> stands for the last time you a made a modification.
<priority> says how important the page is within the whole website.

Once you create this, you save the file as sitemap.xml, upload it to your website and submit the URL in Google Search Console. So that you can start appearing on Google’s search results.
