    Tried the Google-News-Sitemap Plugin mentioned above (italian language) and it seems to be a little bit buggy. I refer to use another news sitemap google plugin für wordpress blogs till this plugin is bugfree.

    have a nice day

    Hi Lazy can you tell me which bugs did you find ?

  4. Marko says:

    Nitpicking: technically, Ecwid Shopping Cart isn’t a plugin, but a hosted service you can include in site/blog.

    For google-news-sitemap you can find English details in the official wordpress plugin page.

    Hi Andrea,

    yes i can, of course :) but if it remember your changelog(s) from yesterday right, all of the bug(s) should be fixed.

    primary i recognized that it stayed with the language it_IT and doesn`t used my de_DE input in the sitemap, but i thinkt this is fixed by you yesterday, so i have to clear up, everybody can use it if he wants to.

    nice greetings to italy ;)

    have a good day

    Hi Chris and thanks for feedback.

    The language problem can be simply fixed following the google guidelines and I put some example before the text field…and the only way to limit errors is to put a select box with correct values.

    thanks for greetings to Italy ;)

    I am very interested in this WP-TTFGen because I am currently building a site for some beauty product related topics and I badly needed to use script-like fonts. Of course, these are not available.

    I have yet to explore this plugin, hoping that this will not impact negatively seo-wise. (Imagine losing the power of h1 tags when using images in its place).

    Post-ordering is also worth bookmarking as I’m pretty sure this will come in handy in the near future.

    I wonder how you get to know about these useful plugins so quickly. Thanks.

    I’m curious about the google news sitemap. Seeing that it’s not in english makes it a little hard to understand what it does. You’re saying that by using the plugin it will submit articles from my blog to google news?

  11. Andrea Pernici (4 comments.) says:

    Hi Darrin on the official wordpress plugin page at you can see all in English.

    With this plugin you can make a request of inclusion in Google News if your url doesn’t respect google news requirements.

    The first step is to ask google for inclusion in google news and the sitemap is only one of these steps.
