Part of the point of this blog itself of course is to improve the quality of information that exists online about me, and outweigh the misinformation brought about by the identity theft incident. As a part of ensuring that this blog remains well ranked, I am trying to submit it to all major engines that accept submission – Google, Bing, Yahoo, Ask; some of which required me to put an authentication file in the root of the web server. A secondary part is including a sitemap.xml file for pre-indexing information. I have installed a plugin to WordPress to see if that will do the job automatically rather than me having to generate one separately and then upload it. Conveniently, the plugin advertises itself in the sitemap.xml file it generates.
