This plugin will generate a special XML sitemap which will help search engines to better index your blog.
It is under Settings > XML Sitemap. I know nowadays many plugins add top-level menu items, but in most of the cases it is just not necessary. I've seen WP installations which looked like an Internet Explorer ten years ago with 20 toolbars installed. ;-)
Not anymore. Since version 4, these files are dynamically generated. There must be no sitemap.xml or sitemap.xml.gz in your blog directory anymore! The plugin will try to rename them to sitemap.xml.bak if they still exists.
Not anymore. Since version 4, these files are dynamically generated just like any other WordPress content.
Please disable automatic priority calculation and define a static priority for posts.
No, only if you want to. Default values are ok for most sites.
This version works with WordPress 3.3 and better. If you're using an older version, please check the Google Sitemaps Plugin Homepage for the legacy releases. There is a working release for every WordPress version since 1.5, but you really should consider updating your WordPress installation!
Please post your question at the WordPress support forum and tag your post with "google-sitemap-generator".
