Google site maps (6 posts)

    I was reading this codex link about google sitemaps:
    http://codex.wordpress.org/Search_Engine_Optimization_for_Wordpress#Google_Sitemaps

    Since members are telling me that I have a custom permalink structure in which my individual posts are not ranked by google, I'm guessing it'd be a good idea to give google as many alternative ways of getting my site information as possible.

    A google sitemap sounded like a good idea. There are a lot of links in the codex article to plugins that help generate such a map. Can anyone tell me which one/s they like.

    Also, do you think the sitemap really helps?

  2. Sitemaps are still technically in beta over at Google, so it will be probably six months before we see any impact. IMO, the best sitemap generating plugin appears to be: http://www.arnebrachhold.de/2005/06/05/google-sitemaps-generator-v2-final

    Hello All I hope this is the right area to post a question. I recently downloaded the latest sitemap wordpress plugin v2.7, uploaded it to the plugins on the server, and activated the sitemap feature in wordpress. When I hit the "Build Sitemap" button in WordPress I get the following error message:

    Could not write into /home/(my password)/public_html/sitemap.xml

    Could not write into /home/(my password)/public_html/sitemap.xml.gz

    Any ideas on what may be wrong?

    Thanks
