Multiple Sitemaps Headache
« on: January 09, 2010, 05:55:23 PM »
Hi All,

I have looked and can't find on this forum the answers to the following questions.

I just cant get my head ::) around multiple sitemaps submission. Can anybody answer this brainteaser?

I have one domain ([external links are visible to admins only]) and 25 subdomains ([external links are visible to admins only]1), ([external links are visible to admins only]2), ([external links are visible to admins only]3) and so on..

1.How do i submit Sitemaps for multiple hosts from a single host without being penalised by Google?

2. Which location do i submit the (sitemap.xml) for ([external links are visible to admins only])?
3. Which location do i submit the (sitemap.xml) for ([external links are visible to admins only]1)?

4. Do i need to submit a robots.txt file for every host?

5. Do i need a robots.txt file for every host with the sitemap address and uploaded to each host?,

I hope ive explained these questions clearly.

Thanks

Tony

Hello,

if you have multiple websites in those locations (http://www.mydomain.co.uk/1/ , http://www.mydomain.co.uk/2/ , etc), you should create a separate sitemap for every website and submit them as:
http://www.mydomain.co.uk/1/sitemap.xml
http://www.mydomain.co.uk/2/sitemap.xml
etc.

robots.txt is optional and you do not submit it to search engines. Just submit sitemap.xml.
