    Hey everyone.
    My client was using Yoast as a sitemap creator. I am not that impressed with it.
    I then tried Google Sitemap Generator and it was better.
    But what I am really looking for is something like this:

    Does anyone know of a WP Plug-in that can create something that robust?
    My goal is to attempt to get Google Sitelinks on mobile.

    Sitemaps don’t help with sitelinks. Sitemaps are a nice-to-haves, but when I was working with large partners, sitemaps were only used as a sort of “QA” for Google’s crawler, ensuring they got all the links.

    In some cases, Google would look for updates to links already in the index via sitemaps, but sites notoriously got this wrong, so we’d only do that with sitemaps that had been individually verified to be using the lastmod* was used properly.

    *it refers to the last modification of the content of the linked resource, not when describing file was updated.

    Joel,

    Thank you.
    Do you have any helpful hints to get those cute little SERP links that appear below a result?

    My experience has been to be sure that
    1- Your site is well structured with the appropriate pages and relationship between the pages for your most important products, services and contact info

    2- Beside well structure navigation link to the top 4 or 5 pages in the first paragraphs of content from your site

    3- Get some inbound links to those important product and service pages..

    Oh and on the home page body copy links use anchor text that closely matches the page content…
