My Website have to split on three Sections , Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7 .Now build Three articles which explain how install Virtual Box on Windows 10, Windows 8 and Windows 7 , therefore build a sitemap for every sections;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9"
   <news:title>Wie instaliert Virtual Box in Windows 10 </news:title>
   <news:keywords>Virtual Box, installation, Windows 10</news:keywords>

Name File , sitemap_windows10.xml . Then for Windows 8 and Windows 7. My Idea is to build a sitemap structure as here say .

When the sitemaps_index.xml should to be on Root of the site, where should to be the Sitemaps referenced (sitemap_windows10.xml)?

  • I removed the seo tag from your question. Sitemaps have very little to do with getting your site indexed and ranked. It usually happens without a sitemap. Adding a sitemap gives you additional data in Google Search Console, but doesn't usually help indexing or rankings. See The Sitemap Paradox Mar 30, 2019 at 10:48
  • Unless you have 50,000 pages on you site, there is no need to create separate sitemaps for different sections. You can put all your URLs for all your sections into a single XML sitemap as long as there aren't too many total for the file size. Mar 30, 2019 at 10:49
  • It appears that the example you gave shouldn't have the <news:news> section in it. It isn't a news article. That section is only needed if you have news articles that you want to have included in Google News. Mar 30, 2019 at 10:50

  • <url><loc>http://htmlkurss.xyz/windows10.php</loc></url> without the news section would be fine. There are a few other fields such as lastmod, changefreq, and priority that can be included, but you don't need to. Google ignores those additional fields. Mar 30, 2019 at 11:02
