[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Do I need submit sitemap manually on "Webmasters" (2 posts)

    I do all of the backend of all of our company's sites and although I have this plugin installed - Do i still need to manually add the sitemaps to my Webmaster accounts on Google and Bing? I don;t want to confuse the crawlers as to the correct sitemap but don't want to miss out on the stats on my webmaster account.

    Any help is awesome - Thank you!

    I have the same question. In his article XML Sitemap in the WordPress SEO plugin, Joost says "The index file, sitemap_index.xml, should be submitted to Google Webmaster Tools automatically if you have the ping setting for Google on."

    However, I have not found this true for the sites that I administer. The sitemap_index.xml files look fine, but Google Webmaster Tools shows 0 sitemaps for the sites. Is there any way to fix this, or do I need to manually submit the sitemap?
