    hi,
    I just added a WordPress install for blogging on my current site and it is located in http://www.mysite.com/blog.
    The original site is in my google account and analytics is installed on the html pages but not yet installed on the WordPress pages.
    Now that it is ready and I have a few posts I have turned on the site visibility in the Privacy settings.

    Q1, do i need to generate a new sitemap.xml that will include the /blog directory?
    Q2, will i use the original google analytics code that i am currently using on the top level pages (www.mysite.com) and paste it into my wordpress Ultimate SEO plugin?
    Q3, is there anythign else i should be aware of

    thanks in advance,

  2. You can use the same google analytics account.
    You can generate a new sitemap if you want, it won't hurt.

    Ok this is where I am confused.com
    Note http://www.mysite.com is html/css site,
    http://www.mysite.com/blog is where WordPress is installed
    If I Create an xml Sitemap using one of the online generators and enter http://www.mysite.com as the starting url, it creates an xml but there is no reference to the WP blog sub-directory, i.e. looks like the WP blog is totally ignored. This is in effect what my current Sitemap (pre-WP Blog).

    So following that,
    I have installed Sitemap plugin for WP and have generated one, I can view the xml at http://www.mysite.com/blog/sitemap.xml no problem.

    So now I have 2 Sitemaps, one in root and other in /blog directory

    Should I combine into one sitemap and submit that to Google via webmasters tools (webmaster used very loosely there ;-)
    or should i submit 2 of them to Google, one for root and other for WP blog.
    Thanks
