WordPress SEO by Yoast
Feature Request: Submit External Sitemaps (3 posts)

    I love using Yoast for wordpress sites, and the xml sitemap feature is great. I love how I can use the main sitemap link with webmastertools and all the sitemaps will get submitted.

    One feature request I have would be the option to add a external xml sitemap that get listed with all the yoast sitemaps. Why would this be useful? Well for one site I use wordpress, but also use tumblr for another part of the site. So if I could just input the tumblr sitemap via your plugin, the sitemap would automatically get submitted and updated with the yoast sitemaps.

    Example of tumblr site url:
    http://sitename.tumblr.com/sitemap.xml

    I too would like to add other sitemap references to sitemapindex.xml
    I'm running a non-Wordpress ecommerce section on a couple of sites, and this would be enormously helpful. All the solutions I've seen so far have been far too complicated for my liking.

    My solution:

    Sitemaps with WordPress and Oscommerce
    1) Add line to Robots.txt
    Sitemap: http://ducati-gowanloch.com/sitemaps_all.xml
    2) Create sitemaps_all.xml
    typically:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9">
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://ducati-gowanloch.com/sitemap_index.xml</loc>
    <!-- produced by yoast SEO -->
    </sitemap>
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http:/ducati-gowanloch.com/catalog/sitemaps.xml</loc>
    <!-- produced by Oscommerce -->
    </sitemap>
    </sitemapindex>

    3) Submit http://ducati-gowanloch.com/sitemaps_all.xml to Webmaster Tools
