 If you have important static content pages (landing pages, texts about services/​institutions,​ etc.), you may wish to include these in a base sitemap as a complement to the record list build by VuFind'​s sitemap generator. If your VuFind instance serves content in multiple languages, you may also wish to take advantage of the ?lng= GET parameter to provide multiple language-specific versions of the link in the sitemap.

 +=== Understand Crawling Budgets ===
 +
 +A VuFind site can easily have hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of pages in its sitemaps -- it's all dependent on the number of records in your index. Search engines will take a significant amount of time to crawl all of these pages, and even more time to detect changes. Be aware that publishing a sitemap will not instantly lead to full visibility of all of your content.
