Adding a Sitemap

The last step is to tell Google about your sitemap. You do that in the Add Sitemap screen.

  1. In the Webmaster Tools Dashboard (Figure 7), click the Add a Sitemap link for the site you want to add a sitemap for.
  2. In the Add Sitemap screen (Figure 8), choose Add General Web Sitemap from the pop-up menu.

  3. Enter the complete URL for the sitemap created by the Google Sitemap Generator plugin in the "My Sitemap URL is" box.
  4. Click Add Web Sitemap. Google displays a screen that lists the site's sitemaps (Figure 9). It will probably indicate that the sitemap's status is "Pending." You're done.
