How to generate sitemap using laravel

Generating a sitemap in Laravel can be done by following these steps:


Step 1 - Install the Laravel Sitemap package using Composer. Run the following command in your terminal:

composer require spatie/laravel-sitemap


Step 2 - After installing the package, publish its configuration file by running the following command:

php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Spatie\Sitemap\SitemapServiceProvider" --tag="config"


Step 3 - Open the config/sitemap.php file and configure the sitemap settings as needed.


Step 4 - Create a new sitemap by running the following command:

php artisan make:sitemap MySitemap

Replace MySitemap with the name of your sitemap.


Step 5 - Open the newly created sitemap file located in the app/Sitemaps directory.


Step 6 - Inside the build() method, add the URLs that you want to include in the sitemap.

For example:

public function build()


Step 7 - You can also dynamically generate URLs by fetching them from your database or other sources. For example:

public function build()
    $posts = Post::all();

    foreach ($posts as $post) {
        $this->add(route('', $post->slug));

In this example, we're retrieving all posts from the database and adding their URLs to the sitemap using the route() function.


Step 8 - To generate the sitemap, run the following command:

php artisan sitemap:generate

This will generate the sitemap XML file and save it to the public directory.


Step 9 - Finally, you can submit the sitemap to search engines such as Google by adding its URL to your website's robots.txt file or by using the Google Search Console.
