XML Sitemap

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by bravoman1, Sep 7, 2011.

    If you upload an XML sitemap to your root folder, will Google index the sitemap in the search results where you main domain appears and the it will have the subdomains below it, or do you need a regular sitemap for this?

    You can't mix domains and subdomains in the same XML sitemap file. You need one XML sitemap for each domain/subdomain

    Create separate sitemap.xml for Subdomain and domain. If you mix both in a single sitemap file, then you will face problem while you submit a sitemap in Google Webmaster Tool.

    it gets easier for Google to index all your pages in the website if you have an xml sitemap generator..

    I don't need that having a separate sitemap for each domain and subdomain really matters. You can upload multiple sitemaps, what Google really needs are the URLs and a knowledge of what URLs and what to leave out.

    You need a different site map for each separately for domains and sub-domains use separate site-map. :)
