Thanks to the other reviewers for explaining how to find the options/preferences menu that contains links to the site map URL's. I was pretty lost until I read those notes.
Its like a one touch magic button, once installed it creates everything in a flash of second, all you have to do is copy the xml link generated in the preference section and paste it on google.com/webmaster tools for your site to be indexed by google quickly.
I wish all joomla extensions were this outstanding!
Some people have trouble figuring out how to link to the sitemap and / or set preferences. It's very easy. Create a menu item linking to the component!
To get the url for the sitemap link to submit to Google, just go into the componenet and click on Options /Preferences. How easy is that?
Thanks again for a great component!
The nice looking TREE like thing (site map) on the site published.
