A sitemap is one of the most important elements that you can install on your website to make it more search engine friendly. As a webmaster, you need a sitemap to help search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ask index your websites pages for better results. The plugin is easy to install and activate, and you don’t even have to change anything, but if you like you can change the settings. Actually, it is very hard to manually index any page or post, which makes this plugin beneficial for SEO. You can also set the time that you would like search engines to crawl your websites posts, author pages, static page, archives and tags, and you can even exclude the pages or posts you don’t want indexed using the Google XML Sitemaps plugin.
