Enhancement to sitemaps for international selling
Shopify now generates sitemaps that contain all published languages, as well as generating sitemaps for all domains when using the international domains feature. This change helps Shopify stores to be indexed more accurately in regional search when selling into international markets.
Prior to today, Shopify only generated a sitemap for a store's primary domain and language. There is no action required, however:
- Merchants can opt to resubmit their sitemaps, if they are selling in multiple languages
- Merchants using international domains can submit sitemaps for all of their domains now, not just their primary.
