Sitemap issue in Google Web Master Tool

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by Paresh Shrimali, Sep 20, 2016.

    In google Web Master tool have displayed 2 sitemaps for my websites.
    so which one i remove from GWT?
    I have added a yoast SEO plugin in my wordpress website. one sitemap is created by yoast seo plugin and another manual submitted by developer.
    so its effect is we had shown a xml sitmap url in google search results on my business keywords.
    SEMrush
    My both xml sitemaps are display as a html sitemap in Google Web Master tool.
    i will remove one of them but why google web master tool count xml sitemap as a html sitemap?

    I don't really get your problem but...

    I highly advice you keep Yoast sitemap.
    Delete any others.

    That is more than enough.

    Sitemap is just so your page will be indexed faster.

    What url specificly is google saying is a html sitemap? Have you checked it manually (view source in browser) to see that it is a valid XML sitemap?

    Hi Paresh,

    Could you please elaborate which two sitemaps ? You are talking here . As per my understanding you can enable yoast sitemap and submit it in webmaster tool , sitemap_index.xml, yoast sitemap is effective and well indexed by Google .

    Cheers
    G

    In my opinion you should delete the sitemap created by Plugin keeping the sitemap which has been created manually and uploaded by the developer. I hope it may help. Thanks
