WPSSO WP Sitemaps XML with News, Image, and Video Sitemaps

Optionally include images and videos in the WordPress sitemaps XML. Note that video information requires the WPSSO Core Premium plugin for video details.

Select Post Types and Taxonomies:

Optionally include or exclude post types and taxonomies from the WordPress sitemaps XML.

Exclude Noindex and Redirected URLs:

Exclude noindex and redirected posts, pages, custom post types, taxonomies (categories, tags, etc.), and user profiles pages from the WordPress sitemaps XML.

WPSSO Core Required

WPSSO WP Sitemaps XML (WPSSO WPSM) is an add-on for the WPSSO Core plugin, which provides complete structured data for WordPress to present your content at its best for social sites and search results – no matter how URLs are shared, reshared, messaged, posted, embedded, or crawled.
