About Image Sitemap

How much money are you losing on image search?

Many Shopify stores are missing large parts of their catalog imagery in Google Images — often more than 60%.

Image Sitemap is the first Shopify App that automatically builds, submits, verifies, monitors and updates a fully compliant .xml Google Image Sitemap for all images associated with each product, blog article and page in your Shopify store — all in real-time.

Image Sitemap is also the first app to provide full reporting for your indexed images.

  • 1-Click Install — No Coding Required
  • Submit 100% of Your Product and Blog Images For Indexing
  • 100% Automated
  • Sitemap Updated & Re-Submitted In Real-Time*
  • Real-Time Monitoring of Google Index Performance

*If you update any product content or attributes in your catalog (like images, image ALT tags, product descriptions, variants, colors, sizes, SKUs, etc), we rebuild and resubmit your Image Sitemap to Google immediately in real-time. We declare EVERY image, regardless of how many variants you have per product. So if you have 500 products, with 20 images per product. We submit 10,000 images to Google for you.

Important Concepts

What is an image sitemap?

An image sitemap is similar in format to a normal sitemap.xml, except that it specifies images only. Most people don't know that search engines need an additional sitemap to help find images. The internet is just too big to find everything all the time.

Do I need one?

Yes. While Shopify provides an abbreviated image sitemap with only a single image per product, you need a much more comprehensive document. Our image sitemap includes ALL of your important images and is packed with additional metadata. For example, where Shopify might generate 1,000 lines of XML for you, our image sitemap will be something like 10,000 lines.

Metadata

We load your image captions with all available product variant metadata, like sku, weight, color, size, description, etc. It is essential to provide this contextual information to Google to enable more powerful and relevant searches.

Reporting

Image Sitemap is the first Shopify App to provide full reporting for your indexed images. We also identify potential 'Blackout' products — or products that seem to have no indexed images at all.

How big is an image sitemap?

Image sitemap files can be huge. To give an example, if your site has 3,000 product images, your .xml image sitemap could be more than 20,000 lines of code and more than 2.5MB in file size. Can you imagine editing that file manually, multiple times per day, and re-submitting it to Google by hand? You don't have to imagine. We gladly handle all of the complexity for you.

I highly recommend this app. I wasn't sure where to start with developing an image sitemap, and this app made it super easy. Not only that, my images were indexed by Google VERY quickly. My site went from 0% to 93% images mapped in less than a month.
