XML Video Sitemap Generator Plugin for WordPress

Still, submitting a sitemap to search engines and especially to Google is the real way to get traffic back to your content from search engines like Google. The sitemap actually includes all of your site’s content in a single file which is very helpful for search robots to index the pages/post or links which they might have missed in the past. If you are using WordPress or blogger for blogging then it would be very easy for you to submit a sitemap to Google using your Webmaster Account. However, if you have videos on your site then you might miss them to be completely indexed by Google, because Google can’t recognize your video content without having “” metas. But the good news for you is; you can easily create a video sitemap of your videos by using a simple plugin in WordPress created by “Amit Agarwal”. This plugin actually does a very simple job and creates a sitemap for all videos embedded to your site from YouTube.
