Wordpress XML Sitemap Plugin Images

Image sitemaps are an extension of XML sitemaps which includes image information along side the page. Incuding images in your sitemap can help google find and index your images in search results.

By enabling the setting in our wordpress plugin we will try to automatically parse your page, extract any images and include them in your sitemap.

To enable images simply check the box in the main sitemap settings in the general section.
