As long As my WordPress blog has been build. I became confused that, Google always grab my post tags and don’t grab the posts directly. And there are many different posts use same tag. So there will be many repeat search results when I write “site:hppt://www.pda-battery.ca”.
Some days ago, I found a useful sitemap plugin: Sitemap Generator Plugin for WordPress (shot or DDsitemapge). And wanted to use it to get a auto blog sitemap. I’m a beginner of WordPress, and this is the first time I upload plugin, so there are so many problems accompany me until my success.
So, I’d like to write this post to share the Complete Installation Steps for WordPress Sitemap Plugin with beginners as me.
