WordPress launches XML Sitemaps


On the morning of 16th June WordPress launched XML Sitemaps.

Nikolay Bachiyski was quoted saying at

"It is hard for search engines to grasp the tens of millions posts at, so we're giving them a hand.

I've always wished to start the week with a new SEO feature. That's why we have an early Monday surprise for you — XML Sitemaps for all blogs.

From the website:

Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling.

Translated that means that search engines have a better idea of your content and might start to send more traffic to you.

The funny thing is that you don't have to inform anybody, because we will do it automatically for you. A sitemap file is available to every search engine that supports the protocol including Google, Yahoo, MSN,, and others.

Now, feel free to write a new post to deserve the increased attention by the search engines."
