I have just installed a sitemap generator script for wordpress at my blog. It can dynamically generate a simple sitemap for all your posts, Google Sitemaps in xml format and Google Sitemaps in gz format.
The installation is pretty simple:
- Download and extract so that you end up with wp-content/plugins/google-sitemaps/google-sitemaps.php in your blog filesystem.
- Activate it.
- Refresh your permalinks rewrite by accessing it the admin panel (Options -> Permalinks). Repeat this step when you change your template, if you want to see the changes reflect on your old school sitemap.
These are the sitemap URLs after the installation:
- Sitemap –
- Google Sitemaps (xml) –
- Google Sitemaps (gz) –
Anyway, what is Google Sitemaps?
Google Sitemaps is an easy way for you to help improve your coverage in the Google index. It’s a collaborative crawling system that enables you to communicate directly with Google to keep us informed of all your web pages, and when you make changes to these pages.
