Great for WPML Multi Language
By , for WP 4.1.1

I had trouble with SEO YOAST and the Google Sitmap while running on NGINX with WPML. I use Directory mapping for the multiple language. It work like a charm now.

I did upload to Google Webmaster tools both Sitemaps:

/en/sitemap.xml
and
/fr/sitemap.xml

As simple as that.

Thanks

Hi,

I do not like to give write access to plugins. This module does not need it and works directly with Microsoft Internet Server (IIS). Other modules returned 404..or did want to write to disk.

Good tool for long term growth

As the title shows, I think this needs to be installed in all WordPress sites because contributing to the Google news feed is important. I decided to rate this with 5 stars because of the essential functionality, but I wish the directions were more clear for the "Front page settings". I set both the Front Page and the Posts Page category to the "Home" setting and my landing page became the feed.... and then I panicked. If there is a short statement saying what these categories are and what not to do, this plugin would be really sweet.

WordPress has successfully complicated a simple thing - adding a sitemap url to a serach engine.

Works well, fast and easy!

Tried 2 other plugins, but I think xml sitemap gets it right first time. Had no trouble finding the sitemap URL and more important GOOGLE found it straight away.. thanks, you got my blessings!

Best integration for WordPress
By , for WP 3.9.1

I've tryed several sitemap generators. This one, wich include xml sitemap for google news (you can switch on / off) is the easyest and more efficient plugin for wordpress I did find.
Juste becarefull of one thing : Cache plugins will put the mess !!
Cache plugin are mostly not compatible with sitemaps generators....
You will find the XML generator in the "read" section of your admin.
I highly recommand this plugin.
