    Hi,

    I'm working on some SEO basics for my first Multisite network.

    I've got a rocking domain mapping plugin that makes my sites seem "independent" of each other.

    Now that I'm running independent sites, I want to do the basics. Webmaster tools meta tag, Analytics, and sitemaps.

    Hoping that someone might have some experience with this, and could guide me a little bit.

    Thank You.

  2. I only actually use one of those things...

    google analytics:

    http://plugins.spiralwebconsulting.com/analyticator.html is one

    Sometimes themes will provide a box for this too.

    sitemaps:

    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/xml-sitemaps/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wpmu-google-sitemap/
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/google-xml-sitemaps-with-multisite-support/

    I only use these if I can't get a certain page indexed by google. I don't use them on my main sites at all.

    Can't remember what I did (if anything) for webmaster tools.

    Andrea,

    I could not get that analytics link to load any page, are you sure that's the link? I tried spiralwebconsulting.com as well just to be sure. Will this let you track each site?

    I haven't tried Joost's GA plugin in a network, so I'm not sure it works. Here's the link:

  5. I just snagged that other link from a plugin I had installed.

    Will this let you track each site?

    Any of them will if they are set up on a blog-by-blog basis using a new profile for each one.

    Yes, I track all mine.

    Hey everyone, thanks for the help.

    OK, I thought it specifically HAD to support multisite, but if I just activate them on a blog by blog basis, it should work. Ok, I'm getting the hang of it now. ha ha.

    Thanks.

  7. Also in GA, if you have subdomains and use the same code across all blogs, you can drill down in the GA menus to track hits.
