Tips for creating a successful WordPress sitemap
If you want your WordPress site to rank well in search engines, creating a sitemap is a must. A sitemap is simply a file that contains all of the pages on your site, broken down by category. When someone searching for information about your site visits your sitemap page, it will show them all of the pages on your site in one place, making it much easier for them to find what they’re looking for.
To create a successful WordPress sitemap:
1. Make sure all of your pages are properly tagged and categorized.
2. Include any images and videos you have on your site in the file as well.
3. Make sure each page’s URL points directly to the correct category or content within that category.
4. Keep the file as small as possible – no more than 1 MB should be included.
5. Upload the file to your server and make sure it’s publicly accessible.
WordPress offers built-in support for creating a sitemap, so there’s really nothing to worry about! Once you’ve created the file, just go to Settings > Reading & Writing > Sitemaps and hit “Create Sitemap.” WordPress will take care of everything else from there – including providing you with a link to download the file!
