Amos Bastian

Seznam.cz is a prominent Czech search engine, and ensuring your website is indexed on Seznam.cz is crucial for reaching the Czech audience. In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore effective strategies to help your website get indexed by Seznam.cz.

Set up Seznam Webmaster Tools

We’re written a guide about setting up Seznam Webmaster Tools and everything you can do with it, so we won’t go into too much detail here, but here’s a quick overview of the steps you need to take to get your site indexed on Seznam.

1. Create a Seznam Webmaster Tools account

Go to https://reporter.seznam.cz/wm/ and sign up.

2. Add your site to your account

3. Verify your site

Once you’ve entered your site’s URL, you’ll need to verify that you own the site. There are two ways to do this:

  1. File upload - Download the verification file and upload it to your site’s root directory. Then click Verify.

  2. HTML tag - Copy the HTML tag (e.g. <meta name="seznam-wmt" content="ABC123" /> ) and paste it into the <head> section of your site’s homepage. Then click Verify.

Add a Robots.txt file

A robots.txt file is a text file that tells search engines which pages they should and shouldn’t crawl. It’s a simple text file that you can create in any text editor, and it should be placed in the root directory of your site. Here is an example of a robots.txt file:

User-agent: *
Allow: /

Sitemap: https://indexplease.com/sitemap-index.xml

Submit your sitemap

There isn’t a way to manually submit your sitemap to Seznam Webmaster Tools to help Seznam discover your pages, so you’ll just have to wait. If you don’t have a sitemap, you can create one using one of many sitemap generators available online.

That’s it. If you don’t want to go through the tedious process of submitting all your URLs in your sitemap for indexing on Seznam, you can sign up for IndexPlease and we’ll do it for you. We’ll also submit your pages for indexing on Bing, Yandex, Naver and Google.
