Yeah I appreciate the way @m_hutley shared the link with you, It has complete details for all your queries. But if you still need help then I would say to submit your sitemap open google search console because you need to create a sitemap in the root folder of your website, register your site with google search console and submit the sitemap’s name in the section. Then leave it to google to process your sitemap and will add new pages to their index.

Apart from the link provided by @m_hutley, I prefer using another site (I’m providing a link) that can help you with generating an XML sitemap if you want to generate first and then submit it.

Hope it helps!

Submitting the sitemap is as necessary as the traffic is for you. Because without submitting the sitemap in search console of Google and Bing, these platforms will not understand about your site and what is about your website. I have recently submitted my round rock roofing blog 2 days ago and my home page is indexed in google and bing as well.

Submitting a sitemap to Google is a crucial step in ensuring that your website’s pages are properly indexed by search engines. Since your website is related to internet speed testing, here’s how you can submit your sitemap to Google using Google Search Console:

  1. Set Up Google Search Console: If you haven’t already, create an account on Google Search Console (previously known as Google Webmaster Tools) using your Google account. Once logged in, click the “Add a property” button and enter your website’s URL.
    2.Verify Ownership: Follow the verification steps provided by Google Search Console to confirm that you own the website. There are several methods available, such as adding an HTML tag to your website’s header or uploading an HTML file to your server.
  2. Access Your Property: Once your website is verified, you’ll be able to access your property’s dashboard in Google Search Console.
  3. Submit Your Sitemap: In the left-hand menu, click on “Sitemaps” under the “Index” section. Click the “Add/Test Sitemap” button.
  4. Enter Sitemap URL: Enter the URL of your sitemap in the provided field. The sitemap URL should look something like this: https://www.xyz.com/sitemap.xml
  5. Submit Sitemap: Click the “Submit” button. Google will now start processing your sitemap and indexing the pages it contains.

By submitting your sitemap, you help Google understand the structure and content of your website, which can lead to better visibility in search results. Keep in mind that while submitting a sitemap is important, it’s just one aspect of search engine optimization. Consistently creating high-quality, relevant content and following other SEO best practices will also contribute to improving your website’s visibility and traffic.

As mentioned in the sitemap introduction that @m_hutley linked above - https://developers.google.com/search/docs/crawling-indexing/sitemaps/overview the vast majority of sites do not require a sitemap for Google to index them, and those that do are in the space of > 500 pages with videos or news content where you may want to often adjust the priority or timing of indexing operations. That makes an automated sitemap generator worthless, and as long as you’ve internally linked your site to all its own pages, you’ve covered the main reason the sitemap exists.

Suggestions that a sitemap is somehow critical to getting your site indexed are overblown.

I agree with you sitemap submission is not essential for most of the websites and that internal linking is a more effective way to ensure that google can crawl and index your pages. Sitemap is a way to provide additional information to google about the structure and content of your pages. Also it can help Google understand the language and location of your pages, and display them to the appropriate users. So I would say it is not all true that an automated sitemap generator is worthless but rather that it depends on the nature and goals of your website. To optimize better and faster your site for google using a sitemap as one of the tools in your toolbox.

To submit your website’s sitemap to search engines like Google, follow these steps:

  1. Create a sitemap.xml file for your website, which should list all the pages you want search engines to index and then sign in
  2. Add your website property to Google Search Console and verify ownership.
  3. Once verified, go to the “Sitemaps” section in Google Search Console and submit the URL of your sitemap.xml file.
  4. Google will then crawl and index the pages in your sitemap, helping improve your website’s visibility in search results.

OP hasn’t returned since posting so there seems little point in continuing to offer help.
