    im using the simple sitemap plugin. i loaded it over a week ago, and it said that google was automatically notified. this is my first sitemap, and google is not acknowledging it on my google webmaster tools page. what do i have to do/where do i have to go to have google acknowledge it?

    thanks for your help….

    From your Google Webmaster Tools page, where you see Overview, Settings, etc., you will also see Sitemaps. You submit it from there.

    Google may take 10-12 days to start and generate sitemaps for your blog…but please remain active with the plugins..

    yes, that is what i am confused about. i see the place to enter the URL for the sitemap, but i cant find if the plugin created a URL. i assumed that there would be a link to “sitemap” somewhere but i cant find it. if it did, where can i find it?



    I am using Blogger and Google automatically detected the blog. I entered atom.xml in place of a sitemap and I am fine.

    I also used a plugin to create the map (Google XML Sitemaps), and in the url, I entered sitemap.xml (the domain part is already there in bold).

    Looking at the instructions from the plugin you are using, you are supposed to create a page (called sitemap), using a template.

    Try pointing your blog to, and see if it’s there.

    I can recommend this plugin:

    The plugin author has good documentation about update notification etc.

    The plugin creates the sitemap.xml and/or sitemap.gz where google and the other search engines expect to find that file (

    Have the plugin create the file, check to see that it is there, then update your Google webmaster account settings to point to/confirm the location…



    Simple: enter wp-content/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/sitemap.php

    How do I find my sitemap address so I can submit through webmaster account? I have Karailiev’s plug in already but google is not finding
