For all thos wondering why I'm using this blogspot for Wordpress entry heres my little explanation.

XML Sitemap Generator for WordPress 4.0.2

It is awkward to blog about wordpress plugin here in my blogspot website. But I'd like to organize my blogs. Here in blogspot I will blog about techniques in SEO that can help my sites - whether wordpress blog or blogspot, to gain traffic, link building, and google adsense and earning thru blogging. I pick SEO here as my blogging niche Yeah, that's blogging niche for you :)

Anyway last time I mentioned about sitemap generator, having said I'd like to add a wordpress plugin that could generate a sitemap instantly. If you have a wordpress sites this might help you.

Here the plugin site.

Google XML Sitemaps with Multisite support is just modified Google XML Sitemaps plugin, originally written by Arne Brachhold.

Some time ago I was employed to work on site, which needs to drive two sites on one WordPress installation – one for Croatian version and another for the English one. Everything seemed fine until I realized that Google XML Sitemaps isn’t working with Multi site installation.

My modification changes this – you can have numerous sites on one installation and each of them can have own sitemap.

* Install “Google XML Sitemaps with Multisite support” through the WordPress admin (or download)
* Create “sitemaps” directory in directory where you’ve installed WordPress
* Make “sitemaps” writeable”

That’s it. 99% percent of work is done by Arne so, thank you Arne. I hope that our projects will merge into the one in the near future.
