I'm developing a new Blogger Blog, and I'm about to send its first sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools. The thing is, I've found 2 articles about Blogger sitemaps, in which one is suggesting to send the sitemap through the url:
/sitemap.xml - http://datzo.blogspot.com/sitemap.xml
and the other one is suggesting to send it by:
(source < Article updated July 23 2015)
The thing is, I don't know which one to send and which one will be more efficient.
- The first one seems to be more clean and right to the point.
- But the second one though, seems to contain more information, but
also another links from other websites and I'm concerned if this
won't be too much unnecessary information. The second link also
max-results=500on the URL, which is for the limit of pages indexed by Google I believe.
And now I'm on a dilemma, about which one to go with, because I don't understand much of sitemaps or SEO, so I need the help of you guys to help me chose the better one, and help me understand why.
