    I just added a WordPress install for blogging on my current site and it is located in
    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 ( and paste it into my wordpress Ultimate SEO plugin?
    Q3, is there anythign else i should be aware of

    thanks in advance,

    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
    Note is html/css site, is where WordPress is installed
    If I Create an xml Sitemap using one of the online generators and enter 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 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.

    please ignore above,
