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 “Schema.org” 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. After creating your sitemap, you can easily send it to Google using Webmaster Tools. Here is how to install and use this plugin.


How to Install and Use “XML Sitemap for Videos” Plugin?

The procedure of using this plugin is very easy, you can install and use this plugin very easily by following simple steps below:

  • Go to WordPress Dashboard
  • Plugins >> Add New
  • Search for this “XML Sitemap for Videos”
  • Install the Plugin and Activate it

After installing the plugin, you’ll need to click the setting page of the plugin, so you’ll see following screenshot:

XML Sitemap for Videos

In above screenshot, you might see there is just a button says “Generate Video Sitemap” which is very easy to be clicked :), while if you want to include the duration of the videos as well then just tick the “Check Box” which says “Include Video length”, but this is not recommended if you have a large number of videos such as thousands of videos. Now just click the Generate Video sitemap and the sitemap will be generated within few seconds of time.

How to submit Video sitemap to Google?

When you generated the sitemap, use the exact method which you use to submit your normal sitemap to Google Webmaster tools, go to your webmaster account, and then to that site for which you have just created the Video sitemap, click add sitemap and paste the link of the video sitemap that you just created which should be looking like this “http://www.yoursite.com/sitemap-video.xml” the yoursite is actually your site :).

If you want to alternatively download this plugin from WordPress plugins directory then here is the link to do so:

  • waleed raza

    nice post/info ; thanks for sharing ; will you plese teach us . how to make a site like tune.pk or tuts2learn.com . give us some basic info . thanks

    • You welcome brother, tuts2learn.com was created with clip-bucket.com script and a VPS (Vertual Private Server) was also taken for it, because on normal hosting it won’t work. You can also create a video sharing website using clip-share.com script, but the VPS hosting is necessary to run a video sharing website. It will cost you around $300 to start a video sharing website in the start, while you’ll have to pay its hosting charges monthly.

      • waleed raza

        O M G ; you will not understand my point ; i sayd write a complete article about it . thanks

        • Brother Waleed, there is no need for complete article because as I already mentioned in my previous reply to your comment that these kind of websites are created with a Pre-script like clip-bucket.com or clip-share.com you should visit these websites and there is complete tutorials on how to install the script on your server, and the second thing is that you need to have a VPS “Vertual Private Server” for it, because on shared hosting it won’t work properly..

          If someone is facing any problem during the installation of the script over their server then the VPS provider helps them to install the script itself and the necessary Add-ons, and I did the same while creating Tuts2learn.com. All of the help was given by the web hosting provider. I didn’t do anything special 🙂

          • waleed raza

            ok thanks

      • shahid

        Thanks wali bhai, i think tune.pk is not like tuts2learn.com. its is totally different one and every one can make easily. Mostly hosting provder provide free script for make these type of sites.

        • you are welcome bro, actually every web hosting doesn’t provide such script to create video sharing websites, but you may get their help to install your script and the necessary plugins in order to run a video sharing website successfully.
