I need a suggestion regarding sitemap creation of our company Website.
Our company has N number of pages and honestly speaking we are not getting a proper info of how many pages we have.
Recently I have been given the charge to supervise the SEO Activities. The first thing I discovered that in GSC a huge number of pages are de-indexed due to redirection issues. I am working with the developer to solve that.
Another huge problem our website has is no Sitemap submitted in GSC. I have suggested to have a proper sitemap so that Google can crawl our site through that. My idea is until we solve the redirection issues (de-indexed pages by Google) dont want Google to crawl those pages. Those pages (having redirection issues) are linked from within the site and outside the site as well.
My concern is; if we submit xml sitemap in GSC Google will crawl those listed pages only and ignore the pages not listed there?
Any suggestion can help me to move forward with the sitemap issue.
