    I have a question about the XML sitemaps. This is kind of dumb, but I was told I needed to write a paragraph in each sitemap for it to work. Also, do I need to submit my sitemap to google webdeveloper tools or no?

    • James (184 comments.) says:

      No need to add anything to the sitemap, the plugin does everything for you there, but you do need to submit it to Google’s Webmaster Tools yourself.

    I’ve started to use the XML sitemaps plugin and its works great! I did what you mentioned above and submitted to Google’s Webmaster Tools myself and all seem to be working fine.
    Definitely a lot easier than making your own
