XML Sitemap

XML Sitemap is a .xml map of your website, and the map will show a list of the page that the visitors can access.

Product

In the Product tab, you can configure settings for the product links.

Here you can specify Frequency of updates (hourly-daily-weekly-monthly). As a rule, it used to set at least weekly for the product pages.
