If you’d like to submit your site map to Google, go to Acabado Settings > SEO and look for “XML Sitemap Location”. You can choose to submit this sitemap to Google via your Google Webmaster Console.
Post & Page SEO Settings
Under then content creation area of each post there is a section titled Meta Description. The Meta Description area is where you can type a suggested sentence about your post for Google to use in the Google search results.
