This question already has an answer here:
I have added a Yoast sitemap which has the default URL
rtye to monitor different aspects of SEO which Yoast referred me to. This tells me that a critical error is not having a sitemap url of
example.com/sitemap.xml so does not appear to recognise the URL of its referral partners sitemap.
I was wondering in the sitemap URL has any impact? I have submitted it to Google and Bing and both are aware of the URL and have indexed the subsequent URLs.
Also I have downloaded a different sitemap plugin which gives me the
/sitemap.xml URL. Google gives the option to add additional sitemaps. would there be any benefit/disadvantage to using both sitemaps? both sitemaps essentially contain the same information
The new one appears, from what I can gather to be the better plugin. If it is recommended to use only one sitemap, would it cause issues with my rankings etc. to delete the old one and replace with the new one?
