  • Daily Successful Living: I did my site authentication with google and bing, but am not sure how to do the XML site map. ; Can anyone direct me to some article's regarding this subject?
  • Warren Chandler: Are you having trouble generating one or submitting one? There are many free XML site map generators online and if you're using a CMS such as WordPress, there are plugins that do all the work for you.
  • Daily Successful Living: I'm using WordPress. ; Do you have any recommendations on Plugins?
  • Brent Wildman: Yoast: ;
  • Warren Chandler: Yoast is good as  ;points out, but I tend to use Google XML Sitemaps as a plugin on its own with All in One SEO as my main SEO plugin.
  • Daily Successful Living: Thanks! ; I'll look at both. ; In my adsense account I'm getting slow site notices, so I am concerned about adding more plugins. ; I'm discovering for every solution I find I run into more issues. ; :)
  • Jim Munro: That might be more of a consequence of your site hosting than blame due to WP topheavy code. It's usually possible to run those plugins and many more without appreciably slowing down your site.
  • Daily Successful Living: Good advice! ; I'm just using the basic monthly Godaddy hosting. ; I'll have to look at other hosting services.
  • Jim Munro: GoDaddy is notoriously bad, apparently. Some say there is no service on the planet worse than GoDaddy. :)
  • Neil Cassels: I also use the Google XML sitemaps plugin for WP.
  • Michael Baggelin: Yoast has XML sitemap integrated ;)
  • Daily Successful Living: I just installed the Yoast plugin and have submitted my sitemaps to Google and Bing. ; It was very simple and easy to use.  ;Do I need to register with any other search engines?
