I am in real confusion regarding sitemaps. I know what a sitemap is but the question here is:
- First option:
- Use a XML Sitemap generator create one
- Upload it to my public HTML directory in my GoDaddy hosting
- Upload it to Google Search Console
- Second option: Use Yoast to do it directly
Now I have tried the first method but I got 404 error when I clicked on sitemaps on my website. Under Yoast, it showed me that sitemap is working.
Can I download the sitemap that Yoast created upload it to public HTML directory?
Update - My Sitemap is changed from websitename/sitemap.xml to websitename/xmlsitemap.xml, how should I change it to correct format to avoid 404 not found error.
