Element Name Description

URL

Displays the URL of a Web site, or the location of a Sitemap that you want to edit.

Last Modified Date

Use the drop-down list to specify the date when the Web page or Sitemap file was last modified. Possible values are Do Not Set and <Choose Date>. Selecting <Choose Date> opens a small calendar that you can use to pick a date.

Change Frequency

Choose a value from the drop-down list that indicates to search engines how frequently the selected Web page is likely to change. Possible values are Always, Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, Yearly, Never, and NotSpecified. The default is Weekly. "Always" refers to pages that change each time they are accessed, while "Never" describes archived URLs. For more information, see the Sitemaps XML format page at Sitemap.org.

This attribute applies only to the URLs listed in Sitemap files. It does not apply to Sitemap files themselves.

Priority

Use the drop-down list to select a priority for the Web page. Valid values are from 0.0 through 1.0, with 1.0 being the highest. The default priority is 0.5. This priority is a way for you to indicate to search engines which pages of your Web site you consider most significant. The priority that you choose will be relative to other URLs on your site and will have no relationship with pages on other Web sites.
