  1. Is this a coincidence? I just added mine now before seeing your post. Our thoughts are on the same wavelength 🙂 View my site, ObinnaOnyenali.com, and let me know what you think about it. Thanks.

  2. Have added my sitemap to Google and Yahoo but not this type you shared here. The Atom sitemap or something are they different? Is one more effective than the other? Haven't start seeing results from Yahoo anyway.

  3. I got this message after adding the sitemap format you shared above. Message from Google Webmaster Tool. "We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit". I discovered the sitemap format myblog.com/sitemap.xml doesn't work on my blog why?

  4. Thank you for this great tips! However, I just opted for Jetpack sitemap functionality and turned of Yoast sitemap functionality for my website https://www.searchngr.com please tell me if I am on the right track.
