<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84">
   <url>
    <loc>http://www.example.com/</loc>
   
<lastmod>2006-01-01</lastmod>
    <changefreq>monthly</changefreq>
    <priority>0.8</priority>
   </url>
</urlset>

lastmod: The date of last modification of the file.

changefreq: How frequently the page is likely to change.

priority: you set the priority you want Google to place on that page in your site. You can prioritize your pages: 0.0 being the least, 1.0 being the highestPsychology Articles, 0.5 is in the middle. This is ONLY relative to your site. It will not affect your rankings.
