Submitting an XML sitemap to Google

Enter the URL for your XML sitemap, you can get this by going to All in One SEO, XML Sitemap and clicking the View your sitemap link.  Note that you only need to enter the last part of the URL as the domain name is already filled out for you.  The default name that Google prefers is sitemap.xml.

Click the Submit button and you are done.

It can take a while for Google to process your XML sitemap.  The length of time they take is entirely up to them and you cannot force them to process your XML sitemap any faster so be patient.
