Basic SEO Guide For Create WordPress Sitemap For Your Blog
1. WordPress Sitemap
Sitemap is an XML file. Indexes important links (posts, pages, Tags, categories) on your blog. With the help of WordPress Sitemap, search engine bots engine your blog’s content in a effectively manner and index them in search. In WordPress there are many sitemap plugin.
But I use the Google XML sitemap, which is a very old and trusted sitemap plugin. All you have to do is to activate the Google XML Sitemap by installing it. After activating the plugin, you can generate a sitemap for your blog by going into the plugin settings.
After generating a Sitemap, submit your Sitemap after submitting and verifying your blog by visiting Google Webmaster Tools and Bing Webmaster Tools. After submitting a Sitemap, all the internal pages of your blog will be crawled and indexed.

4. Use The Image Alt Tag And Image Sitemap
I can not say with conviction, but how much you use the image to improve the presentation of your content. If you do not do this then you can now start adding images to the blog post. If you want to know why we add images to a blog post, there are many reasons for this. like-
- Images make your blog post presentation more better.
- Images make pinnable to pin your content to Pinterest.
- Add images lets you get more organic traffic from images search.
- You can find extra traffic and free backlinks by add your original images to Flickr.
Apart from these there are many other benefits too. The best advantage of adding images to the blog post is that the search engine optimizes your WordPress images like text content too. Which gives your blog content a high rank. Search engine bots use alt tag to rank any images.
You can use the SEO friendly images plugin in WordPress. Which creates automatic ALT tags of all the images in your blog post. This is a great plugin. According to search engine bots, you can use this plugin to create all your images as ALT tags.
If you have a lot of images in your blog, you can create a sitemap of WordPress images and submit it to Google Webmaster Tools. By doing so, all the images on your blog will be very well indexed. I have used this method. This method not only provides targeted traffic, but it also has a good ranking in the search engine of many of my keywords. You can use the Smush.it plugin to reduce your image size.
