How do I authorize my sitemap?

While our search engine submission feature is fully automated and submits a sitemap to major search engines, we recommend authorizing your sitemap for best performance.

  1. Log into your account at mcafeesecure.com
  2. Select Sitemap in the top navigation bar.

  3. Click on “Authorized: No”


  4. Copy the code.


  5. Access your site's code base.
  6. Open your robot.txt file. This should be in your website's root directory, e.g. example.com/robots.txt. If your website doesn't already have a robots.txt file, you can simply create one using a text editor.
  7. Paste the code into the robot.txt file.
  8. Once the code is updated, go back to your account at mcafeesecure.com.
  9. Click the "Check If Installed" button in the "Authorized" menu to confirm that the code has been added.
