You should create a sitemap of your site. This is usually in XML format.

A sitemap is a file where you can list the web pages of your site to tell Google and other search engines about the organization of your site content.

Search engine web crawlers like Googlebot read this file to more intelligently crawl your site.

A sitemap is especially helpful if your site has dynamic content or an extensive archive of pages that are not well linked together.

Creating and submitting a sitemap helps make sure that Google knows about all the pages on your site, including URLs that may not be discoverable by Google’s normal crawling process.

In addition, a sitemap can provide valuable information about when a page was last updated, how often it changes, and how important it is in relation to other pages on your site.

All of this information helps Google index your site more effectively and improve your google ranking.

While most popular CMS platforms (wordpress, shopify) will create a sitemap for you automatically, you can also generate one using sitemap extensions or tools.

Once you have created your sitemap, you can submit it to Google via the Google search console for improved crawling and indexing.

Generally speaking, sitemaps are used to discover new pages on your site, but they can also be useful for keeping track of existing pages.

For example, by including priority and last-modified information in your sitemap, you can help ensure that search engines are indexing your most important and up-to-date content first.

Overall, sitemaps are an important part of SEO and should be included as part of any comprehensive optimization strategy.
