How to Set Custom Priority and Frequency for Pages?

With Google XML Sitemaps Generator Pro, you can customize the Priority and Frequency settings for individual Pages, Posts, Custom Posts using Custom Fields and the Gutenberg Plugin Sidebar settings. Additionally, plugin filters can be employed for more advanced customization. Here’s how to do it:

Besides this, you can use plugin filters to programmatically set custom priority and frequency for pages:

  • sitemap_post_priority
  • sitemap_post_frequency
  • sitemap_term_priority
  • sitemap_term_frequency

Here’s an example of how to use the sitemap_post_priority filter::

add_filter( 'sitemap_post_priority', 'my_sitemap_post_priority', 10, 2 );
function my_sitemap_post_priority( $priority, $post ) {
    if ( $post->ID === 1 ) {
        $priority = 9; // priority from 0 to 10
    return $priority;

* This code snippet sets a custom priority of 9 (out of 10) for the page with the ID 1. Adjust the conditions and priority values according to your requirements.

By following these methods, you can set custom priority and frequency settings for individual pages on your website, enhancing their visibility and indexing efficiency. Adjust the values based on the importance and update frequency of each page.
