30 Days to a Better Blog: Install Google Sitemap


30 Days to a Better Blog: Install Google Sitemap

Today we’re setting up the Google Sitemap. A Google Sitemap is a file which contains URLs and some additional information for all public pages or documents of your website. Google reads this file and adds the page to their index.

While there’s no evidences that a Google Sitemap will affect your Google rank, it does help search engines to index and crawl your page better, making your information easier to access.

And if you updated WordPress already, this task is only going to take you about 3 minutes!

  1. Click “Add New” under Plugins
  2. Search for Google XML Sitemaps
  3. Click “Add Plugin”
  4. Enter your FTP info
  5. Click “Activate Plugin”

If you’re on Blogger – here are some complete instructions with screenshots!

Please tell us how to reach you and we will notify you as soon as registration opens
