One of the easiest ways to boost your search engine optimization (SEO) for a WordPress site is to install the Google Sitemaps Generator plugin. It boosts your SEO by creating a sitemap, which is a widely adopted search engine standard that helps search engine robots crawl your site. It was created by Google and adopted by Yahoo!, Microsoft and others in the search engine industry.
In English, it makes it easier for search engines to see what’s on your site and add it to the search results. That’s good.
The best part is that it’s incredibly simple and requires little to no work from you: Download the plugin, upload it and activate it. Done. Sit back and watch your site benefit from better search engine ranking.
We’ve even created a free video tutorial that walks you through installing Google Sitemaps Generator (the video shows how to install two of the best basic plugins, so skip to about 2:30 for the Google Sitemaps Generator).
