Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Google XML and SEO by Yoast

  • Resolved 82Ale


    Hello community,
    I am like a newborn baby to wordpress and would like to ask one question about this plugin and in general XML. I want to install the Google XML sitemaps plugin on my site but I also want to use the WordPress Seo by Yoast one, which has also a XML option.

    1) Would the contemposary use of 2 plugins performing the same action be a source of problem or reduce speed?
    2) The best indexing of images would be an important factor for me. Which one should I choose if I have to?
    3) Using the Seo by Yoast for SEO but disabling the XML option and using the Google XML sitemaps plugin for the google indexing would be a smart decision?

    Thanks for your help!

  • 1) Simply deactivate XML sitemaps of Yoast. Have no sense have two plugins doing the same.

    2) Google XML sitemaps not create a sitemap for images. You will need to use another plugin for that.

    3) It´s exactly what i do.

    You can easily disable the Sitemap function in the Yoast plugin and use the Google XML sitemaps plugin.
