XML update question (4 posts)

    It's a great plugin no doubt, but I have a question which to I can't seem to find the answer and it seems a really crucial and obvious one...

    I've created my XML sitemap and uploaded it manually to Google Webmasters, so that's good.

    Question: When I add a new page to my site as far as I can tell the site map updates automatically. However, if I have the Notify Google box ticked does this mean Google is updated automatically without me doing anything more, so I can kick back and drink my tea? Or do I have to put my tea down and actually click Update Sitemap every time I want Google to be updated?

    Thanks in advance.

    You do have to click Update Sitemap when you want to notify Google again; however, keep in mind that a) Google will re-crawl your site anyhow, and b) while clicking that button will notifly them, it won't necessarily cause them to do it any faster, it depends on the individual site. You can also check on this with Google Webmaster Tools.

    Hi Peter

    Thanks for your reply, that's great I understand now how it works.

    One more question, can I create a video sitemap with All in One SEO?

    If not can you recommend the easiest way (plugin?) to do that?
