Best Google News WordPress plugin
To be honest, I really should be experimenting with more WordPress plugins than I currently do. I focus (as you would expect, considering it is my job) most of my efforts on SEO, but there are some really cool plugins that can make your job a hell of a lot easier. Over the weekend I experimented with a number of different Google News plugins, but the best one was by 4visions.nl.
I installed the plugin on my Manchester United blog and it worked perfectly. All verified through Google Webmasters Tool with no errors. So, I thought I would do a tutorial on here for SEO Trench. I currently have a static sitemap here, which I will have to keep under a different format due to the rel=alternate sitemap tests I have been doing
I’ve now deleted the sitemap file and renamed sitemap1.xml to sitemap-area.xml. Once the plugin has been installed it gives me the following results:
The process is totally automated and I can now verify both sitemap through Google Webmaster Tools. Best get blogging more for Google News now!
