Google (XML) Sitemaps Generator for WordPress

This plugin generates a XML-Sitemap compliant sitemap of your WordPress blog. This format is supported by Ask.com, Google, YAHOO and MSN Search.

More information about what XML-Sitemaps are and how they can help you to get indexed by the major search engines can be found at Sitemaps.org.

If you have questions about XML-Sitemaps or run into problems, have a look at my Sitemaps FAQ.

Note: The XML-Sitemap format was introduced in 2005 by Google and adopted in 2006 by YAHOO, Live and Ask.com so that’s why it’s often called “Google Sitemaps”.
