Step 1. Set the Frequency and Priority of Content Updates

  1. On the Admin sidebar, tap Stores. Then under Settings, choose Configuration.

  2. In the panel on the left under Catalog, choose XML Sitemap.

  3. Expand ![]({% link images/images/btn-expand.png %}) the Categories Options section. Then, do the following:

    • Set Frequency to one of the following:

      • Always
      • Hourly
      • Daily
      • Weekly
      • Monthly
      • Yearly
      • Never
    • In the Priority field, enter a value between 0.0 and 1.0. Zero has the lowest priority.
