Google Sitemap Duplicates on Google Search

  • Answered
Simple question. If I remove the Google sitemap files from my website, will Google crawl all my pages?

Briefly, I have a Prestashop site and had to disable friendly URL's. Now Google keeps showing duplicate pages, one with friendly URL and one without. It seems even though I turned off friendly URL's, Prestahsop still generates those pages for the sitemap.

(more on Prestashop in my next question ... please take a look ... thanks!!!)

Hello,

Sorry for the problem with the Goolge Sitemap in your PrestaShop site. Even if you remove Google sitemap, Google will crawl your pages. If you are having problems with the plugin, we highly recommend that you contact the author of the plugin in order to see if they can correct that issue. Google will generally not crawl your site only if they have identified problems with malware, have purposely blocked certain pages, or given you reason for specific issues.

I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance.

Regards,
Arnel C.
