    Hello Simple007,

    In my opinion there wont be any issue if you have more than one sitemap on one web site, you will find many websites which have multiple sitemaps like XML, PHP and HTML all in one site.

    Sitemaps shares navigation on your website and provide better visibility to search engines. But may I know why you want to implement two similar type of Sitemaps on one website?

    If your XML sitemaps (generated by different plugins) cover different URLs, no problem. (Even if there are overlaps, it is not a problem, just unnecessary)

    Okay thanks, so what will happen to the indexed pages on the second sitemap? we added some new products 3-4 days ago and they are in google search and must have been indexed on the second sitemap as the original sitemap indexed pages hasn't changed for over a week.
    will these items be picked up again by the original sitemap?
    sorry if it sounds confusing

    Yes it is not a problem at all. You can create different sitemap for different section.Better use .gz format like below
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.example.com/sitemap1.xml.gz</loc>
    <lastmod>2004-10-01T18:23:17+00:00</lastmod>
    </sitemap>
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.example.com/sitemap2.xml.gz</loc>
    <lastmod>2005-01-01</lastmod>
    </sitemap>
    </sitemapindex>

    No it is not an issue to submit 2 site map for one site. But it should be in xml format.
