Your site’s caches will be warmed by our crawler visiting the pages of your website. In order for our crawler to behave correctly, it needs to know which pages your site contains. There are three ways of letting our crawler know your page URLs:

  1. By entering the URL to your site’s sitemap.xml.
    Many site’s already already have a sitemap.xml in place, generated by Google’s webmaster tools. You can enter the sitemap.xml in your project configuration page. The sitemap is usually located at http://example.com/sitemap.xml.
  2. By uploading a CSV file containing URLs.
    By uploading a CSV file containing a list of URLs. This is the recommended option if you wish to warm a specific set of URLs on your site. The CSV file should contain one URL per line. Your CSV file can be uploaded on your project configuration page.
  3. By using our automatic crawler.
    When option 1 and 2 are not an option for you, you can use our automatic crawler. This is a best-effort solution that will try and determine your site's URLs automatically. You can enable this option on your project configuration page.
    Configuration of query string handing is possible here (see under "Advanced" on your project configuration page).

Don't forget to click the save button to add your new project.
