I'm with the University of Wyoming's Institutional Marketing Web Service and we are wondering if you could provide us with any information regarding a section that seems to be set up by our predecessor in our custom metadata in the CMS. I have attached a screen capture on the section that I am referring to (bottom section). We would like to know what the determines the priority value (0.1-1.0) for the Google Site Map Priority and how we would be able to explain to our clients the meaning of those values and what would work best for them. Also in regards to the priority, how does the Google Site Map Change Frequency affect it? What would be the best frequency a user should set it to?

We have searched your Knowledge Base and many other articles of yours and can not seem to find any information.

Any help at all, would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

    Hi Morgan,

    Based on the sitemap protocol:

    • The priority is the priority of the page/URL based on others within the Site
    • The change frequency describes how frequently the page/URL is likely to change

    More information about these and other sitemap elements can be found here.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
