    I understand having a sitemap added to your site would help in the ranking of your site in search engines as all your pages will be crawled by Google robots. Can you share the basic steps to add a sitemap to my site?

    1. Decide which pages on your site should be crawled by Google, and determine the canonical version of each page.
    2. Decide which sitemap format you want to use. ...
    3. Test your sitemap using the Search Console Sitemaps testing tool.
    4. Make your sitemap available to Google by adding it to your robots.txt file and submitting it to Search Console.

    If your site is static then you'll have to manually create your sitemap or use a sitemap generator. You have to create google webmaster Tool account first because you will need to manually submit and verify your sitemap the very first time you submit it.

    Many tools are obtainable online, but I recommend the tool from XML-Sitemaps.

    You need to enter the URL of the website and some parameters in the form.

    Now you need to click the start, you need to wait until the whole site is crawled it will give you a link.

    You need to download the sitemap file from the provided link and place it into the site’s domain root folder.

    In the webmaster tool, add the sitemap URL.

    All these tools will give you general (default) sitemap. You can manually change your XML sitemap that is submitted to Search engine to tell them what to crawl and when to crawl. It is always good to check the site map before submitting it to Search engines.

    Exactly sitemap helps your website to get rank as Google crawl of the pages of your website and store in his data base. Below I have mentioned the procedure how you can generate your sitemap.
    1) Search sitemap generator in Google
    2) put your website home page link in the sitemap generator
    3) Later download the file
    4) Sign in the Google webmaster tool
    5) Add it to sitemap.
