All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
My client has a shop and he want’s me to create sitemap with products.
The problem is that each product has its own subdomain. Every products uses the same layout as homepage and non-subdomain pages.
I cannot change subdomain products to be on directory like:
On non-subdomain pages there is some texts. There a blog, contact page, categories.
If I submit the sitemap to Google Console without links to products on subdomains will it hurt my clients SEO or will it help SEO?
How would you handle situations like this?
How to solve :
I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
First of all, this type of store is not recommended with products in subdomains.
By the way, every subdomain should have separate property in Google Search Console. So, you couldn’t import sitemaps for subdomains in root domain property. It’s better to add separate property for each subdomains.
In this case, from the perspective of SEO, its better to work on product’s blog page in directories and drive incoming users to product’s subdomain by the purchase link in product’s blog page.
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
