Yoast SEO
no sitemap.xml in root? (2 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.5.1 latest (not beta)
    WordPress SEO version: latest

    I used the "Google XML Sitemaps" plugin and recently started using WordPress SEO by Yoast and I've noticed the Yoast plugin seems to have a sitemap generator built in - can I simply delete the "google XML Sitemap" plugin and leave sitemap generation all up to the Yoast one? Can I have both plugins running together? Lastly: it appears that, instead of creating a sitemap in the root, the Yoast plugin creates multiple sitemaps (which don't seem to appear when viewing things via ftp)... why make more than one? And why doesn't it create a sitemap.xml file in the root?

    Sorry to bother you (I can imagine you get a lot of questions already..), but I'd really like a quick reply to this if at all possible.

    I think the above questions are valid and me also want some answers on these.

    Furthermore I got the problem with Google Webmaster Tools returning 24 errors in total for the submitted /sitemap_index.xml generated by WordPress SEO by Yoast plugin >
    General HTTP error: HTTP 403 error (Forbidden)

    Any suggestions on what is causing this would be really appreciated.

    Thank you in advance,
