WordPress 5.5 Sitemap – Location

WordPress 5.5 was recently released for production use. One interesting new feature with WordPress 5.5 is a built in sitemap. However, by default this feature is turned on.

I was a bit confused as to where this sitemap is located. There are quite a few WordPress plugins that are free or paid for that you can use to create a sitemap. Now this sitemap I am talking about is for search engines like Bing, Google, etc.

You see search engines often times look for Uniform Resource Locators by browsing a website’s robots.txt file. Generally, the robots.txt file is located in the document root folder of a website on the server side. For example:

/home/user/public_html/robots.txt

Now not all web servers have the same directory structure to your websites root folder location. The WordPress 5.5 sitemap is actually located at this example below.

http://www.governmentsucks.com/wp-sitemap.xml

According to this WordPress 5.5 sitemap core blog post, WordPress 5.5 now automatically creates a sitemap by default named sitemap.xml.

http://www.governmentsucks.com/sitemap.xml

However, this file does not exist, because actually I had disabled a free plugin that would create a sitemap.xml file for Bing, Google, etc. search engines. I actually found this sitemap instead, wp-sitemap.xml. You see before WordPress 5.5, you had to either manually create a sitemap or install a plugin in order to have a sitemap for Bing, Google, etc. search engines.

Also, the new WordPress 5.5 is supposed to automatically change your robots.txt file with the new default WordPress 5.5 sitemap. However, this website you are reading this blog post on, did not have an updated robots.txt file after I upgraded WordPress to 5.5. Actually, I had upgraded another one of my websites that I administer, and I found this entry in that websites robots.txt file.

User-agent: *
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Allow: /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php

Sitemap: http://www.xxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com/wp-sitemap.xml

The most important line is the one above highlighted with bold font. I browsed to:

http://www.anetcomputers.com/wp-sitemap.xml

Sure enough the new WordPress 5.5 sitemap had been successfully created. I went ahead and manually edited this domain’s robots.txt file with the correct Sitemap: declaration. Also, I updated my Google Webmasters sitemap declaration for the WordPress 5.5 sitemap.

You do not necessarily need to include information in both your Google Webmasters account and or robots.txt file about your sitemap location. Some search robots will ignore this file. Also, it is well known that Google indexes websites now a days without you evening notifying their search robot about your websites sitemap file.

Finally, I had already disabled the plugin that had created the old sitemap.xml file. I went ahead and deleted this plugin. I am satisfied for now with this built in WordPress 5.5 sitemap. In summation, if you are confused as to the location of your WordPress 5.5 sitemap, look for sitemap.xml or wp-sitemap.xml using my example domain name above.

all right well i believe

0:00:03.360,0:00:09.040
i am live and these motherfuckers at

0:00:07.040,0:00:13.360
youtube i’m telling you

0:00:09.040,0:00:16.960
they they fucking changed the goddamn

0:00:13.360,0:00:20.400
streaming platform when on the back end

0:00:16.960,0:00:24.160
it you it used to ask you to click on

0:00:20.400,0:00:26.320
go live you would hit your encoder

0:00:24.160,0:00:27.599
and start streaming and then you had to

0:00:26.320,0:00:30.640
click another button

0:00:27.599,0:00:33.920
that said go live well

0:00:30.640,0:00:37.600
when i started the stream

0:00:33.920,0:00:41.600
the button disappeared and so now

0:00:37.600,0:00:44.000
there’s another button called end stream

0:00:41.600,0:00:47.360
and then also i wasn’t able to edit the

0:00:44.000,0:00:47.360
title of this live stream

0:00:47.600,0:00:51.680
normally it asks you to enter in the

0:00:49.920,0:00:53.440
title and some additional information

0:00:51.680,0:00:56.320
before you even start

0:00:53.440,0:00:57.120
i had to click on edit because it

0:00:56.320,0:01:00.960
pre-filled

0:00:57.120,0:01:02.559
from my from some default all right

0:01:00.960,0:01:05.360
so this is my live stream about

0:01:02.559,0:01:08.560
wordpress 5.5

0:01:05.360,0:01:11.600
which is an the most recent version

0:01:08.560,0:01:15.040
up to this you know video creation

0:01:11.600,0:01:18.640
and one interesting feature of

0:01:15.040,0:01:21.119
wordpress 5.5 is a built-in default

0:01:18.640,0:01:22.560
site map so that’s what this live stream

0:01:21.119,0:01:26.240
is going

0:01:22.560,0:01:28.479
to become now

0:01:26.240,0:01:30.799
two live streams ago i complained about

0:01:28.479,0:01:33.840
how atrocious youtube was

0:01:30.799,0:01:37.759
and then

0:01:33.840,0:01:41.520
my last live stream was perfect

0:01:37.759,0:01:43.759
it was archived within an hour

0:01:41.520,0:01:46.159
and i you know that’s why i live stream

0:01:43.759,0:01:48.079
it so it saves me time

0:01:46.159,0:01:50.399
but i was not aware of the new changes

0:01:48.079,0:01:53.280
all right so let’s get into this

0:01:50.399,0:01:54.240
now let me go through my blog post and

0:01:53.280,0:01:57.200
it’s

0:01:54.240,0:01:58.159
basically 100 percent written except for

0:01:57.200,0:02:00.399
i need to

0:01:58.159,0:02:01.520
add it something additional to it that i

0:02:00.399,0:02:04.799
just thought

0:02:01.520,0:02:07.119
but let’s go over that now so maybe you

0:02:04.799,0:02:10.879
were confused or you’re just

0:02:07.119,0:02:14.000
you know similar to me i’m not an expert

0:02:10.879,0:02:17.520
and speaking of experts how are the

0:02:14.000,0:02:20.400
youtube technology shills surviving

0:02:17.520,0:02:20.720
during this alleged pandemic when they

0:02:20.400,0:02:23.120
live

0:02:20.720,0:02:24.319
in their gated communities how are the

0:02:23.120,0:02:26.720
youtube technology

0:02:24.319,0:02:27.920
shills surviving in their gated

0:02:26.720,0:02:30.400
communities

0:02:27.920,0:02:32.560
complaining about how bad youtube is for

0:02:30.400,0:02:34.319
them

0:02:32.560,0:02:36.400
meanwhile the rest of us we’re just

0:02:34.319,0:02:36.800
lucky like myself that i’m self-employed

0:02:36.400,0:02:39.040
alright

0:02:36.800,0:02:40.160
so topic of discussion and i hope i

0:02:39.040,0:02:43.040
won’t digress again

0:02:40.160,0:02:43.680
i was not ready for that i went i i

0:02:43.040,0:02:45.519
clicked

0:02:43.680,0:02:47.120
you know i went into my encoder i

0:02:45.519,0:02:49.280
started streaming and then all of a

0:02:47.120,0:02:51.360
sudden youtube said that it was live and

0:02:49.280,0:02:53.519
there was a counter and i’m like wait a

0:02:51.360,0:02:55.680
minute i didn’t even get to prepare

0:02:53.519,0:02:58.800
all right which i don’t fucking care

0:02:55.680,0:02:58.800
because i do not

0:02:59.840,0:03:03.120
script any of my videos i actually

0:03:01.360,0:03:06.959
freestyle all them so

0:03:03.120,0:03:10.480
but anyways wordpress 5.5 sitemap

0:03:06.959,0:03:13.200
location i had no idea where it was at

0:03:10.480,0:03:13.599
so with the newest version of wordpress

0:03:13.200,0:03:16.800
up

0:03:13.599,0:03:18.560
until this point of this video creation

0:03:16.800,0:03:22.319
which was what two days ago

0:03:18.560,0:03:25.519
or yeah i think two days ago is when

0:03:22.319,0:03:27.760
wordpress officially released 5.5

0:03:25.519,0:03:28.799
into production and i decided to upgrade

0:03:27.760,0:03:31.440
that same day

0:03:28.799,0:03:33.440
or was it the day after anyways whatever

0:03:31.440,0:03:34.720
it’s been like two or three days

0:03:33.440,0:03:37.280
now i’m not going to go through all the

0:03:34.720,0:03:40.400
features but one interesting feature

0:03:37.280,0:03:43.360
that is brand new

0:03:40.400,0:03:44.239
never before used in wordpress is a

0:03:43.360,0:03:47.680
default

0:03:44.239,0:03:51.519
site map now caveat

0:03:47.680,0:03:52.560
mtor i am only talking about the site

0:03:51.519,0:03:55.840
map that you

0:03:52.560,0:03:58.159
use for search engines if you’re

0:03:55.840,0:03:58.959
a webmaster you know what i’m talking

0:03:58.159,0:04:00.959
about

0:03:58.959,0:04:02.239
there are technically two different site

0:04:00.959,0:04:05.120
maps

0:04:02.239,0:04:08.000
the first site map is xml which is a

0:04:05.120,0:04:08.000
markup language

0:04:08.120,0:04:11.920
sitemap.xml that’s the one i’m

0:04:11.040,0:04:15.599
discussing

0:04:11.920,0:04:18.799
that one is what

0:04:15.599,0:04:21.680
search robots search engines like bing

0:04:18.799,0:04:22.639
and google and others use that is what

0:04:21.680,0:04:24.639
i’m talking about

0:04:22.639,0:04:27.520
i am not talking about the other site

0:04:24.639,0:04:31.680
map that you

0:04:27.520,0:04:33.199
would use for your users

0:04:31.680,0:04:36.320
here’s a here’s a tip i’m going to give

0:04:33.199,0:04:37.840
you a tip right here that i’ve learned

0:04:36.320,0:04:39.199
now i’m not going to discuss maybe

0:04:37.840,0:04:41.199
that’ll be a little bit over time i’ll

0:04:39.199,0:04:44.479
discuss whether or not a site map

0:04:41.199,0:04:47.440
xml the one that search robots use to

0:04:44.479,0:04:48.000
you know browse your domain and then

0:04:47.440,0:04:50.639
gather

0:04:48.000,0:04:53.040
uniform resource locators otherwise

0:04:50.639,0:04:54.560
known as urls otherwise known as what i

0:04:53.040,0:04:55.680
just highlighted at the top of the

0:04:54.560,0:04:58.400
screen here

0:04:55.680,0:04:58.800
ain’t computers dot com slash wordpress

0:04:58.400,0:05:01.039
dash

0:04:58.800,0:05:02.639
five dash five dash site map dash

0:05:01.039,0:05:05.280
location that is a

0:05:02.639,0:05:06.400
url also known as a uniform resource

0:05:05.280,0:05:10.320
locator

0:05:06.400,0:05:11.759
that’s what search engines gather

0:05:10.320,0:05:13.520
and order and then they build big

0:05:11.759,0:05:14.080
databases and then you type in search

0:05:13.520,0:05:17.600
terms

0:05:14.080,0:05:19.919
and then you know boom it displays your

0:05:17.600,0:05:23.120
your link to your website and then you

0:05:19.919,0:05:25.840
land on the uniform resource locator

0:05:23.120,0:05:26.560
a here’s a tip you may want to also

0:05:25.840,0:05:28.880
include

0:05:26.560,0:05:30.000
a separate site map that you can build

0:05:28.880,0:05:33.039
manually

0:05:30.000,0:05:33.759
or with a plug-in for your viewers your

0:05:33.039,0:05:37.039
audience

0:05:33.759,0:05:40.160
somebody browses to ain’tcomputers.com

0:05:37.039,0:05:42.160
and they get the worst you know

0:05:40.160,0:05:43.360
information technology help on the

0:05:42.160,0:05:45.520
internet

0:05:43.360,0:05:46.479
as most of the haters and the trolls

0:05:45.520,0:05:49.680
view my me

0:05:46.479,0:05:49.680
probably possibly

0:05:50.320,0:05:54.320
that would allow them and i actually

0:05:52.320,0:05:56.080
have one right here

0:05:54.320,0:05:57.840
so that that’s a bonus tip but i’m not

0:05:56.080,0:06:01.039
going to talk about that in this video

0:05:57.840,0:06:01.039
but that is a bonus tip

0:06:01.759,0:06:04.800
it may or may not be good for search

0:06:03.520,0:06:06.800
engine optimization

0:06:04.800,0:06:07.840
but this is the other site map which i

0:06:06.800,0:06:11.440
am not talking about

0:06:07.840,0:06:12.800
again okay it just makes if if anybody’s

0:06:11.440,0:06:14.960
interested in your website

0:06:12.800,0:06:16.639
it shows all your posts it shows all

0:06:14.960,0:06:19.440
your pages and it may

0:06:16.639,0:06:20.080
be searching optimize beneficial okay

0:06:19.440,0:06:24.240
now let’s get

0:06:20.080,0:06:28.000
back to the site map that search engine

0:06:24.240,0:06:32.400
robots like bing and google use

0:06:28.000,0:06:35.440
to find out web pages from your website

0:06:32.400,0:06:36.319
so with wordpress 5.5 you they by

0:06:35.440,0:06:39.520
default

0:06:36.319,0:06:42.000
create a sitemap for you and i didn’t

0:06:39.520,0:06:43.919
know where the fuck was that

0:06:42.000,0:06:46.000
i found out about it because i read

0:06:43.919,0:06:48.560
through the new changes i always do that

0:06:46.000,0:06:49.680
well i try to especially the main

0:06:48.560,0:06:52.479
updates you know

0:06:49.680,0:06:52.880
wordpress five to five point one to five

0:06:52.479,0:06:55.840
point

0:06:52.880,0:06:56.800
two to five if it’s five point two point

0:06:55.840,0:06:59.759
one i don’t

0:06:56.800,0:07:01.039
neces i use two but i don’t as much or a

0:06:59.759,0:07:03.919
lot of times i do not

0:07:01.039,0:07:05.360
but this one i went through the new

0:07:03.919,0:07:08.960
features and i was like

0:07:05.360,0:07:11.280
oh they embedded

0:07:08.960,0:07:12.080
their own site map i was like well you

0:07:11.280,0:07:14.160
know what

0:07:12.080,0:07:15.360
i’ve been using a plug-in for like over

0:07:14.160,0:07:17.840
a decade

0:07:15.360,0:07:19.280
and i wonder how good it is and i i

0:07:17.840,0:07:20.240
wanted to see what it looked like but i

0:07:19.280,0:07:22.560
couldn’t find it

0:07:20.240,0:07:24.000
so this is what this video is about is

0:07:22.560,0:07:26.720
where is it located

0:07:24.000,0:07:29.520
now according to the wordpress official

0:07:26.720,0:07:32.720
core blog post pertaining to

0:07:29.520,0:07:33.919
the site map which will be in my blog

0:07:32.720,0:07:35.840
post so

0:07:33.919,0:07:37.759
some people learn in the abstract better

0:07:35.840,0:07:39.599
some people learn visually some people

0:07:37.759,0:07:41.840
learn both whatever

0:07:39.599,0:07:43.039
click on the link in the description box

0:07:41.840,0:07:44.840
of this youtube video

0:07:43.039,0:07:46.160
it’ll take you to my website

0:07:44.840,0:07:50.080
anikapeers.com

0:07:46.160,0:07:53.680
with my blog post about the wordpress 5

0:07:50.080,0:07:55.599
5.5 site map location and it’ll take you

0:07:53.680,0:07:56.840
to the official blog post for the

0:07:55.599,0:08:01.120
fucking

0:07:56.840,0:08:03.039
wordpress core or xml sitemap

0:08:01.120,0:08:04.560
plug it at one time it was a separate

0:08:03.039,0:08:06.080
plugin now

0:08:04.560,0:08:07.840
it’s not a separate plugin that that

0:08:06.080,0:08:09.520
could be also confusing

0:08:07.840,0:08:12.560
now it’s actually built into the

0:08:09.520,0:08:14.000
wordpress core some people don’t like it

0:08:12.560,0:08:16.160
i don’t really fucking care at this

0:08:14.000,0:08:19.120
point and

0:08:16.160,0:08:19.120
so whatever

0:08:19.440,0:08:25.520
according to the wordpress core

0:08:22.560,0:08:27.759
official blog post they claim that the

0:08:25.520,0:08:28.800
site map would be located in the root

0:08:27.759,0:08:32.880
directory of

0:08:28.800,0:08:36.479
your domain name and then it

0:08:32.880,0:08:39.519
the name would be site map dot xml

0:08:36.479,0:08:42.399
well it did not exist on my website and

0:08:39.519,0:08:44.880
i was like well where the fuck is it

0:08:42.399,0:08:46.480
now here is where it could be just me i

0:08:44.880,0:08:48.240
could be an idiot and a moron i’m not

0:08:46.480,0:08:49.920
perfect i’m not an expert i know the

0:08:48.240,0:08:51.680
youtube technology shills

0:08:49.920,0:08:54.080
that live in their castles and their

0:08:51.680,0:08:56.480
gated communities

0:08:54.080,0:08:58.320
while the rest of us are lucky that we

0:08:56.480,0:09:00.320
have jobs or we’re lucky that we’re

0:08:58.320,0:09:03.680
still self-employed

0:09:00.320,0:09:04.800
and you’re gonna see what you know what

0:09:03.680,0:09:06.800
there’s 30 million

0:09:04.800,0:09:08.640
unemployed people in america now because

0:09:06.800,0:09:10.320
of this alleged pandemic

0:09:08.640,0:09:12.640
and they’re not receiving any more

0:09:10.320,0:09:14.399
emergency

0:09:12.640,0:09:16.399
unemployment from the federal government

0:09:14.399,0:09:19.600
because that expired and

0:09:16.399,0:09:22.560
the landlord

0:09:19.600,0:09:25.440
eviction moratorium that also expired so

0:09:22.560,0:09:27.839
you’re gonna see a lot of problems

0:09:25.440,0:09:30.000
in the next couple days weeks months

0:09:27.839,0:09:32.320
years possibly

0:09:30.000,0:09:32.320
all right

0:09:34.720,0:09:40.320
i’m thinking that possibly because i

0:09:37.839,0:09:43.839
think when i upgraded my website

0:09:40.320,0:09:46.720
to wordpress 5.5 i still

0:09:43.839,0:09:48.640
had i think i fucked up i meant to

0:09:46.720,0:09:51.279
disable it

0:09:48.640,0:09:51.839
and i did not that’s what i’m thinking

0:09:51.279,0:09:55.120
so

0:09:51.839,0:09:57.120
it should be located at your domain name

0:09:55.120,0:10:00.480
and i have an example here

0:09:57.120,0:10:04.480
so here’s an example

0:10:00.480,0:10:06.640
of where it

0:10:04.480,0:10:08.720
should be located now this is just an

0:10:06.640,0:10:10.320
example domain name i don’t know if

0:10:08.720,0:10:13.120
anybody has created the

0:10:10.320,0:10:14.640
website government sucks.com if they do

0:10:13.120,0:10:16.240
i would that’d be great

0:10:14.640,0:10:18.000
that would be one of my favorite

0:10:16.240,0:10:21.519
websites ever

0:10:18.000,0:10:23.360
government sucks.com slash sitemap.xml

0:10:21.519,0:10:25.680
that’s according to this official blog

0:10:23.360,0:10:29.600
post that i will show you really quick

0:10:25.680,0:10:33.839
and it show and it stipulates right here

0:10:29.600,0:10:33.839
it says here

0:10:37.040,0:10:40.240
here we’ll just search for it

0:10:44.079,0:10:48.160
it says right here by default the plugin

0:10:47.120,0:10:51.279
creates a sitemap

0:10:48.160,0:10:54.240
index at slash sitemap.xml

0:10:51.279,0:10:55.440
well it did not exist so i thought that

0:10:54.240,0:10:57.120
you know

0:10:55.440,0:10:59.279
they’re trying to pull a fast one now

0:10:57.120,0:11:00.720
this blog post i think may have been

0:10:59.279,0:11:02.959
written before

0:11:00.720,0:11:03.839
5.5 was released and it may have

0:11:02.959,0:11:05.920
referenced the

0:11:03.839,0:11:07.600
the old sitemap plug-in that that

0:11:05.920,0:11:08.079
doesn’t it still exists but you don’t

0:11:07.600,0:11:11.760
need it

0:11:08.079,0:11:15.920
because now with wordpress 5.5 core it’s

0:11:11.760,0:11:19.360
it’s built into wordpress okay

0:11:15.920,0:11:20.800
so then i’ll then i upgraded an another

0:11:19.360,0:11:23.200
one of my websites

0:11:20.800,0:11:25.600
which i will not disclose because of the

0:11:23.200,0:11:29.360
youtube trolls

0:11:25.600,0:11:31.560
and i tried to go to you know

0:11:29.360,0:11:32.720
you know government sucks dot com slash

0:11:31.560,0:11:36.079
sitemap.xml

0:11:32.720,0:11:39.600
it did not exist well then i

0:11:36.079,0:11:44.120
i think i i found it on somebody else’s

0:11:39.600,0:11:47.200
another plugin and they mentioned wp

0:11:44.120,0:11:47.839
sitemap.xml i was like well what the

0:11:47.200,0:11:49.680
fuck

0:11:47.839,0:11:52.160
sometimes you have to you have to just

0:11:49.680,0:11:54.959
that’s just how the internet works

0:11:52.160,0:11:55.920
and sure enough it existed so government

0:11:54.959,0:11:59.839
dot com

0:11:55.920,0:12:02.560
and then slash wp

0:11:59.839,0:12:04.000
minus sign or dash sitemap.xml in it and

0:12:02.560,0:12:06.880
it existed

0:12:04.000,0:12:08.079
so here is i don’t know if it’s a fact

0:12:06.880,0:12:10.560
but i think this is

0:12:08.079,0:12:11.760
maybe what has happened or maybe it’s

0:12:10.560,0:12:14.399
you know what i’m saying

0:12:11.760,0:12:15.600
i think possibly because they know that

0:12:14.399,0:12:16.800
there are plugins

0:12:15.600,0:12:18.560
out there already that will

0:12:16.800,0:12:19.920
automatically create a government

0:12:18.560,0:12:23.920
sucks.com

0:12:19.920,0:12:25.680
slash sitemap.xml file which the plugin

0:12:23.920,0:12:26.560
that i had been using for like at least

0:12:25.680,0:12:30.000
10 years

0:12:26.560,0:12:32.000
it did create that file i disabled it

0:12:30.000,0:12:33.360
and once you disable it that sitemap no

0:12:32.000,0:12:36.560
longer exists

0:12:33.360,0:12:39.680
well my logic tells me that they either

0:12:36.560,0:12:40.480
you know may have in the script it may

0:12:39.680,0:12:44.240
actually

0:12:40.480,0:12:47.839
create wp dash sitemap.xml

0:12:44.240,0:12:50.000
if you’re if the plugin is enabled or

0:12:47.839,0:12:51.440
maybe by default or you know what i’m

0:12:50.000,0:12:53.279
saying that’s what i’m thinking

0:12:51.440,0:12:55.360
because i think i still had it enabled

0:12:53.279,0:12:58.800
even though i i

0:12:55.360,0:12:58.800
told myself to disable it

0:12:58.959,0:13:02.560
so that’s it that’s the location right

0:13:00.959,0:13:06.160
there it’s either

0:13:02.560,0:13:08.160
it could be it could be sitemap.xml2

0:13:06.160,0:13:09.680
it may actually create it it could have

0:13:08.160,0:13:10.320
been because i already had a plug-in

0:13:09.680,0:13:12.560
that had

0:13:10.320,0:13:13.600
already created it and so it then

0:13:12.560,0:13:15.519
renamed it

0:13:13.600,0:13:17.120
i just don’t know because i don’t have a

0:13:15.519,0:13:19.279
website

0:13:17.120,0:13:21.200
that did not have that plug-in enabled

0:13:19.279,0:13:23.920
you know what i’m saying

0:13:21.200,0:13:23.920
and so

0:13:24.320,0:13:28.639
here is where the location could be it

0:13:26.320,0:13:31.920
could be government sucks.com

0:13:28.639,0:13:37.279
for slash sitemap.xml

0:13:31.920,0:13:40.399
or wp dash sitemap.xml

0:13:37.279,0:13:42.560
that’s where it should be located and i

0:13:40.399,0:13:45.680
can even show you on this website

0:13:42.560,0:13:47.440
where it’s located and then i’m done

0:13:45.680,0:13:48.959
the rest is overtime you can leave you

0:13:47.440,0:13:49.600
probably probably are i don’t give a

0:13:48.959,0:13:50.880
fuck

0:13:49.600,0:13:52.720
you probably already left alright i

0:13:50.880,0:13:55.519
don’t give a shit

0:13:52.720,0:13:56.399
i never ever record videos for my

0:13:55.519,0:13:58.720
subscribers

0:13:56.399,0:13:58.720
never

0:13:59.600,0:14:04.240
i record videos to try to help people oh

0:14:02.639,0:14:05.199
that’s right the youtube technology

0:14:04.240,0:14:07.680
shills

0:14:05.199,0:14:08.800
they sell coffee mugs and peanuts and

0:14:07.680,0:14:11.839
popcorn

0:14:08.800,0:14:14.720
and tickets as they complain

0:14:11.839,0:14:16.399
about how bad youtube is to them even

0:14:14.720,0:14:19.199
though they live in gated communities

0:14:16.399,0:14:19.920
and while the rest of us you know the

0:14:19.199,0:14:23.519
irony

0:14:19.920,0:14:25.519
the irony the irony the irony of it all

0:14:23.519,0:14:27.519
those that live privileged lives you

0:14:25.519,0:14:27.920
notice yell and scream the most about

0:14:27.519,0:14:31.360
how

0:14:27.920,0:14:33.120
you know they’re being oppressed jesus

0:14:31.360,0:14:36.959
fucking christ

0:14:33.120,0:14:37.839
all right so i’m going to show you that

0:14:36.959,0:14:41.040
indeed and it

0:14:37.839,0:14:44.160
exists it’s not a conspiracy you know

0:14:41.040,0:14:47.120
theory or anything which which

0:14:44.160,0:14:49.279
actually conspiracies do exist though

0:14:47.120,0:14:52.079
they do

0:14:49.279,0:14:54.320
but not everything is a conspiracy but

0:14:52.079,0:14:56.800
yes conspiracies do exist

0:14:54.320,0:14:58.160
if you talk about them you get censored

0:14:56.800,0:15:00.000
off of youtube though

0:14:58.160,0:15:01.360
if you tell the truth on youtube you get

0:15:00.000,0:15:05.440
terminated at midnight

0:15:01.360,0:15:09.440
or earlier wp

0:15:05.440,0:15:13.839
dash site map i’m going to show you my

0:15:09.440,0:15:13.839

0:15:21.279,0:15:28.079
site map for search engines only

0:15:24.320,0:15:32.160
bing google et cetera that is

0:15:28.079,0:15:35.360
built into the wordpress 5.5 core look

0:15:32.160,0:15:36.800
and you know not i don’t want to go any

0:15:35.360,0:15:39.440
further because this is just

0:15:36.800,0:15:40.639
you know technical but this link on the

0:15:39.440,0:15:44.160
top wp

0:15:40.639,0:15:46.720
site map dash posts dash post one

0:15:44.160,0:15:47.440
this is where all your wordpress posts

0:15:46.720,0:15:51.199
are

0:15:47.440,0:15:55.839
listed look 919.

0:15:51.199,0:15:55.839
i have written 919 blog posts

0:15:56.399,0:16:02.560
it works it works great look

0:15:59.920,0:16:03.360
i’m happy with it this is only for

0:16:02.560,0:16:05.360
search engines

0:16:03.360,0:16:06.720
this xml sitemap is generated by

0:16:05.360,0:16:08.800
wordpress to make your content more

0:16:06.720,0:16:11.759
visible for search engines

0:16:08.800,0:16:12.720
that’s all it is and you know what i’ve

0:16:11.759,0:16:15.680
done

0:16:12.720,0:16:18.240
on all of my websites i went ahead and

0:16:15.680,0:16:22.480
upgraded to 5.5 wordpress

0:16:18.240,0:16:24.800
and i went ahead and disabled and

0:16:22.480,0:16:26.320
removed that plug-in that i’ve been

0:16:24.800,0:16:28.639
using for over 10 years

0:16:26.320,0:16:31.040
to build a site map for search engines

0:16:28.639,0:16:34.000
that’s how much i like it

0:16:31.040,0:16:36.079
because it’s it’s you know it’s

0:16:34.000,0:16:39.839
self-explanatory it does the job

0:16:36.079,0:16:39.839
i mean it works

0:16:40.160,0:16:45.519
there see so it saves me

0:16:43.519,0:16:47.279
resources actually because now i don’t

0:16:45.519,0:16:49.040
have to have an additional plug-in now

0:16:47.279,0:16:50.079
you could manually build one but you

0:16:49.040,0:16:51.519
know

0:16:50.079,0:16:53.279
that can take a lot you could probably

0:16:51.519,0:16:55.360
script it but i don’t want to go off

0:16:53.279,0:16:57.519
into that

0:16:55.360,0:16:59.680
all right so that’s it it actually works

0:16:57.519,0:17:01.519
anything else

0:16:59.680,0:17:03.040
i have all the details and oh here’s

0:17:01.519,0:17:06.160
some additional tips

0:17:03.040,0:17:08.160
now i found the site map

0:17:06.160,0:17:10.319
i think on another blog post that was

0:17:08.160,0:17:12.799
written but then i also double checked

0:17:10.319,0:17:15.439
it by looking at my robots.txt

0:17:12.799,0:17:18.640
so this is completely over time i don’t

0:17:15.439,0:17:21.839
know why i’m talking about this but

0:17:18.640,0:17:22.240
you know what i’m saying a robots.txt

0:17:21.839,0:17:25.280
file

0:17:22.240,0:17:28.720
is just a text file hence the extension

0:17:25.280,0:17:29.200
that tells search engine robots like

0:17:28.720,0:17:33.679
bing

0:17:29.200,0:17:35.360
and google and ad nauseam at infinite

0:17:33.679,0:17:37.280
and i’m sure the youtube technology

0:17:35.360,0:17:38.240
shields they have robots that scour the

0:17:37.280,0:17:41.280
internet

0:17:38.240,0:17:43.280
as they complain about how

0:17:41.280,0:17:45.039
terribly treated they are by youtube at

0:17:43.280,0:17:47.840
the same time that they live in gated

0:17:45.039,0:17:47.840
communities

0:17:50.720,0:17:54.960
it’s just it it tells the robots what to

0:17:54.320,0:17:57.360
do or

0:17:54.960,0:17:58.960
it tells them what directory is allowed

0:17:57.360,0:18:01.520
it tells them what directory

0:17:58.960,0:18:02.240
is not allowed and and another thing you

0:18:01.520,0:18:06.880
can include

0:18:02.240,0:18:06.880
is the sitemap declaration

0:18:07.280,0:18:12.000
so that’s another and then that’s how i

0:18:09.280,0:18:14.240
found out i died i verified it

0:18:12.000,0:18:16.720
on another website that i will not

0:18:14.240,0:18:16.720
discuss

0:18:17.039,0:18:20.240
it was similar to government sucks.com

0:18:19.200,0:18:21.760
but it was not

0:18:20.240,0:18:23.520
you know i don’t think that domain

0:18:21.760,0:18:25.840
exists not yet hopefully somebody will

0:18:23.520,0:18:25.840
create

0:18:26.320,0:18:31.440
and youtube probably will not allow any

0:18:28.720,0:18:33.280
videos you know uploaded

0:18:31.440,0:18:34.720
you know what i’m saying youtube they

0:18:33.280,0:18:37.120
kiss the government’s ass what are you

0:18:34.720,0:18:37.120
talking about

0:18:37.360,0:18:41.200
susan wojcik is a big commie all right

0:18:39.520,0:18:42.960
all right i better stop otherwise i’ll

0:18:41.200,0:18:46.720
get censored

0:18:42.960,0:18:47.120
all right so wp-sitemap.xml i found it

0:18:46.720,0:18:50.240
and

0:18:47.120,0:18:51.440
and i fixed all three of my robot.txt

0:18:50.240,0:18:53.360
files on all my

0:18:51.440,0:18:55.360
websites or actually on all my websites

0:18:53.360,0:18:59.120
not just three

0:18:55.360,0:19:01.919
okay now some people

0:18:59.120,0:19:03.039
think that you don’t need a sitemap.xml

0:19:01.919,0:19:05.200
for robots

0:19:03.039,0:19:06.080
i’m not sure i’m old school i’ve always

0:19:05.200,0:19:08.160
used one

0:19:06.080,0:19:10.240
i’ve just gotten to the habit you could

0:19:08.160,0:19:13.120
test it you could test on

0:19:10.240,0:19:14.000
a website that you already run run

0:19:13.120,0:19:16.880
administrate

0:19:14.000,0:19:18.720
now and see the differences you could

0:19:16.880,0:19:19.600
test the website how much traffic you

0:19:18.720,0:19:22.440
receive

0:19:19.600,0:19:25.840
without a sitemap.xml without a

0:19:22.440,0:19:30.240
robots.txt file

0:19:25.840,0:19:33.600
declaration with the sitemap you just

0:19:30.240,0:19:35.280
sitemap with a capital s colon space and

0:19:33.600,0:19:39.280
then you tell them where the sitemap is

0:19:35.280,0:19:42.640
located take that out

0:19:39.280,0:19:43.760
i don’t know supposedly google and maybe

0:19:42.640,0:19:45.919
bing and i don’t know

0:19:43.760,0:19:48.240
quite a few them they will automatically

0:19:45.919,0:19:49.840
find your website however

0:19:48.240,0:19:52.480
there’s a lot of complaints on the

0:19:49.840,0:19:54.720
internet when you have people that are

0:19:52.480,0:19:56.640
trying to become affiliate marketers

0:19:54.720,0:19:58.960
and they claim that their fucking

0:19:56.640,0:20:02.080
website isn’t receiving any traffic

0:19:58.960,0:20:03.520
even though they used and this is

0:20:02.080,0:20:06.720
another part of overtime

0:20:03.520,0:20:08.720
the google webmasters tool and declared

0:20:06.720,0:20:10.159
the site map there and they still

0:20:08.720,0:20:12.480
weren’t getting traffic

0:20:10.159,0:20:13.200
so it’s up to you and then i’ll give you

0:20:12.480,0:20:15.520
a warning

0:20:13.200,0:20:16.960
you may not want to make any major

0:20:15.520,0:20:19.919
changes

0:20:16.960,0:20:20.880
to certain features like a sitemap that

0:20:19.919,0:20:24.400
xml

0:20:20.880,0:20:25.280
or a robots.txt file or a dot htaccess

0:20:24.400,0:20:27.120
file

0:20:25.280,0:20:28.400
if you’re if if you’re worried about

0:20:27.120,0:20:31.520
traffic

0:20:28.400,0:20:32.240
if you rely on your website for you know

0:20:31.520,0:20:34.240
income

0:20:32.240,0:20:36.919
you may not want to go around fucking

0:20:34.240,0:20:40.400
around with the sitemap.xml

0:20:36.919,0:20:42.159
robots.txt declaration or

0:20:40.400,0:20:45.679
you know without you know thinking it

0:20:42.159,0:20:48.200
through or you may not want

0:20:45.679,0:20:50.080
you may not want to disable your

0:20:48.200,0:20:51.440
sitemap.xml plugin that you’ve been

0:20:50.080,0:20:54.799
using all these years

0:20:51.440,0:20:57.760
just yet i’m i’m satisfied

0:20:54.799,0:20:58.240
so here’s another bonus tip what you can

0:20:57.760,0:21:01.200
do

0:20:58.240,0:21:02.159
is you can go to your to bing also has a

0:21:01.200,0:21:05.440
feature but

google webmasters and i this is where i

0:21:05.440,0:21:10.159
need to

0:21:06.159,0:21:13.200
edit my blog post and add to it

0:21:10.159,0:21:15.520
i’m not going to go deep into it but the

0:21:13.200,0:21:16.880
google has what’s called google

0:21:15.520,0:21:20.159
webmasters

name

0:21:20.480,0:21:24.559

0:21:22.799,0:21:28.400
tell google

0:21:24.559,0:21:33.240
where your site map is located the exact

0:21:28.400,0:21:36.440
location government sucks dot com slash

sitemap.xml or slash wp

0:21:36.440,0:21:43.520
sitemap.xml and then google

0:21:40.320,0:21:46.720
they will browse that right away because

0:21:43.520,0:21:49.600
i know because all my websites now

0:21:46.720,0:21:50.760
i went ahead and changed it to the new

0:21:49.600,0:21:53.600
wordpress

0:21:50.760,0:21:55.520
sitemap.xml and

0:21:53.600,0:21:56.960
it it already found it and it already

0:21:55.520,0:22:00.080
browsed it and i already

0:21:56.960,0:22:01.760
listed i didn’t get well one

0:22:00.080,0:22:03.679
i think one website it was still working

0:22:01.760,0:22:06.640
on but

0:22:03.679,0:22:07.360
one other website it found all of them

in using google

0:22:18.080,0:22:24.240
webmaster tool okay

0:22:21.200,0:22:27.840
anything any other bonus tips that i can

0:22:24.240,0:22:27.840
go through

0:22:28.960,0:22:32.320
if you’re satisfied you may want to test

0:22:31.200,0:22:35.280
it like i said i’m not

0:22:32.320,0:22:36.559
here to cause problems i’m here to help

0:22:35.280,0:22:38.640
people

0:22:36.559,0:22:39.600
so you may want you know caveat emptor

0:22:38.640,0:22:43.039
you may not

0:22:39.600,0:22:45.600
want to do what i do and i when when i

0:22:43.039,0:22:47.360
if i can save resources by disabling a

0:22:45.600,0:22:50.159
plug-in

0:22:47.360,0:22:50.960
i will generally you want to shy away

0:22:50.159,0:22:54.000
from using

0:22:50.960,0:22:55.600
plugins on wordpress the more you

0:22:54.000,0:22:57.200
have the more problems you could have

0:22:55.600,0:23:00.720
all it takes is one plugin

0:22:57.200,0:23:02.960
this is a fact one plugin could be buggy

0:23:00.720,0:23:06.400
it could be slow and it’ll fuck up your

0:23:02.960,0:23:08.960
website and it’ll slow down your website

0:23:06.400,0:23:10.320
so i’m always looking now you can you

0:23:08.960,0:23:13.280
know program a lot of it

0:23:10.320,0:23:14.240
in which is what some people do but so

0:23:13.280,0:23:16.480
once in a while

0:23:14.240,0:23:18.000
in my case i have to i have to try to

0:23:16.480,0:23:20.159
find a plug-in

0:23:18.000,0:23:21.440
but if i can limit the amount of

0:23:20.159,0:23:23.200
plug-ins oh yes

0:23:21.440,0:23:24.880
so i was kind of happy that wordpress

0:23:23.200,0:23:25.760
decided to have their own built-in site

0:23:24.880,0:23:27.840
map

0:23:25.760,0:23:29.840
now i don’t debate i don’t argue i know

0:23:27.840,0:23:31.600
you goddamn fucking nationalistic

0:23:29.840,0:23:33.440
americans that’s all you do is argue

0:23:31.600,0:23:33.919
with each other the the left versus the

0:23:33.440,0:23:37.200
right

0:23:33.919,0:23:39.840
when it’s a pale skinned european

0:23:37.200,0:23:41.679
military dictatorship supremacy society

0:23:39.840,0:23:43.440
based on racism

0:23:41.679,0:23:44.720
you know what i’m saying i know you love

0:23:43.440,0:23:47.840
to argue i don’t

0:23:44.720,0:23:49.679
some people will say well you know

0:23:47.840,0:23:51.360
don’t ever use the sitemap sitemap.xml

0:23:49.679,0:23:52.799
well you don’t need to worry about it

0:23:51.360,0:23:54.799
google will take care of it it’ll find

0:23:52.799,0:23:56.320
your website anyways well you’re just

0:23:54.799,0:23:59.440
wasting resources however

0:23:56.320,0:24:01.760
you must know that some robots

0:23:59.440,0:24:04.159
some search robots they ignore the

0:24:01.760,0:24:06.400
robots.txt file did you know that

0:24:04.159,0:24:07.360
yeah i found that out some search engine

0:24:06.400,0:24:10.400
robots

0:24:07.360,0:24:12.159
they don’t heed your instructions you

0:24:10.400,0:24:14.000
tell the motherfucker what to do

0:24:12.159,0:24:16.159
and they ignore you they don’t follow

0:24:14.000,0:24:17.840
the robots.txt file which i include in

0:24:16.159,0:24:18.880
my blog post which is this is a simple

0:24:17.840,0:24:22.559
declaration

0:24:18.880,0:24:25.200
user agent call star disallow

0:24:22.559,0:24:25.919
and it tells you what directory to

0:24:25.200,0:24:27.679
disallow

0:24:25.919,0:24:29.200
allow it tells you what directory or

0:24:27.679,0:24:32.000
directories plural tool

0:24:29.200,0:24:32.640
to allow and then this one the site map

0:24:32.000,0:24:34.320
declaration

0:24:32.640,0:24:35.600
some fucking robots ignore that well

0:24:34.320,0:24:37.440
then what’s the point of having a

0:24:35.600,0:24:39.360
robot.txt file

0:24:37.440,0:24:41.200
i don’t know does google and bing do

0:24:39.360,0:24:43.679
they lie to you like they do a lot

0:24:41.200,0:24:44.880
and ignore your robots.txt file they may

0:24:43.679,0:24:46.799
or they may not

0:24:44.880,0:24:49.120
you may have to test that so that is

0:24:46.799,0:24:51.279
that’s another additional tip

0:24:49.120,0:24:53.039
and then but i don’t argue and i you

0:24:51.279,0:24:54.400
know it’s up to you

0:24:53.039,0:24:56.960
you could test it like i said you could

0:24:54.400,0:24:58.480
test it before on a brand new website or

0:24:56.960,0:25:00.559
or website that you already receive a

0:24:58.480,0:25:03.279
lot of traffic it’s up to you whether

0:25:00.559,0:25:06.480
you use a sitemap.xml for your

0:25:03.279,0:25:09.200
for your you know for search engines it

0:25:06.480,0:25:10.480
you know what i’m saying i’ve i’m just

0:25:09.200,0:25:12.720
old school i’ve always gotten

0:25:10.480,0:25:14.520
under the habit of having a goddamn

0:25:12.720,0:25:17.760
fucking x

0:25:14.520,0:25:18.480
sitemap.xml file and now wordpress has

0:25:17.760,0:25:23.520
it built in

0:25:18.480,0:25:23.520
anything else that i included uh

0:25:23.600,0:25:27.360
oh another before i run finally in some

0:25:26.080,0:25:30.720
well not summation but

0:25:27.360,0:25:35.840
in closing if if you’re not

0:25:30.720,0:25:35.840
familiar with maintaining a website

0:25:36.480,0:25:44.000
you know what you may want i don’t know

0:25:41.360,0:25:46.000
but if you’re interested in learning how

0:25:44.000,0:25:48.400
to maintain websites this might be

0:25:46.000,0:25:48.400
useful

0:25:48.640,0:25:53.840
if you’re confused about where the

0:25:50.200,0:25:53.840
robots.txt file is

0:25:54.880,0:26:01.760
it’s in the root folder

0:25:58.400,0:26:05.840
of your domain so government sucks.com

0:26:01.760,0:26:08.960
slash robots.txt

0:26:05.840,0:26:12.640
now that is the domain name

0:26:08.960,0:26:14.880
that’s what the the real world sees

0:26:12.640,0:26:15.919
on the server it’s not that that

0:26:14.880,0:26:18.400
location

0:26:15.919,0:26:20.159
now it can depend on the type of web

0:26:18.400,0:26:21.200
server you’re using if you’re using

0:26:20.159,0:26:23.360
nginx

0:26:21.200,0:26:24.480
if you’re using apache if you’re using

0:26:23.360,0:26:27.200
something else

0:26:24.480,0:26:29.520
it may not be the exact folder that i

0:26:27.200,0:26:31.600
but i gave you an example

0:26:29.520,0:26:32.720
you want to go to the root folder of

0:26:31.600,0:26:35.360
your website

0:26:32.720,0:26:37.200
where wordpress is installed or if you

0:26:35.360,0:26:40.000
know what i’m saying

0:27:16.000,0:27:18.720
you know what i’m saying

0:27:19.679,0:27:23.200
this is an example slash home slash user

0:27:22.720,0:27:28.880
slash

0:27:23.200,0:27:31.200
public underscore html slash robots.txt

0:27:28.880,0:27:32.640
that is an example where the robots.txt

0:27:31.200,0:27:36.399
file is located

0:27:32.640,0:27:38.960
on the server when you log in via

0:27:36.399,0:27:39.520
secure shell like ssh through a command

0:27:38.960,0:27:41.039
line

0:27:39.520,0:27:43.120
you know i’m saying that’s where it

0:27:41.039,0:27:44.000
would be located you can manually edit

0:27:43.120,0:27:47.279
it

0:27:44.000,0:27:49.440
and you can learn what veri variables to

0:27:47.279,0:27:50.399
include in your robust text file but

0:27:49.440,0:27:54.640
like i said

0:27:50.399,0:27:54.640
i know that some robots ignore it

0:27:55.120,0:28:01.760
ah don’t you just love

0:27:58.559,0:28:03.760
