Hi Currently my site is in 3 languages:- English, French, Dutch.

My main sitemap file is example.com/sitemap.xml

I have 2 questions:

  1. Since I don't have a root folder for other languages (I only have one root folder), my question is how do I implement a sitemap for other languages?

Should I just add my URLs into the main sitemap.xml file? ( which includes English language URLs)

  1. If I use Google's 3rd method of implementing href lang tag via sitemap method like mentioned here.

Should I still add my URLs into the main sitemap file ( sitemap.xml)?

  • What does a root folder have to do with a sitemap file? Dec 23 '20 at 9:50
  • Since sitemap file has to be in the root folder right? I dont have root folders for my other languages
