OK I think I get this ([external links are visible to admins only]) and need to be logged in or something to be on the right page.

But now I have gone beyond this program and went to PRO and got that working.

I have  a few questions??

#1- PRO is saying to put the whole file http://a97237.hostedsitemaps.com/3974251/sitemap.xml.gz
including the .gz into the robots.txt file. Problem with the .gz on the end of the string it does not open as a .xml is this correct to have the .gz in the robots.txt file? By the way I did do it this way, just wondering?

#2- I did an Automatic submit to Google and went through all of the steps until it was completed fully. My question is, do I which I did delete the old sitemap.xml that was on the our server? And why after I did the Automatic submit to Google in webmaster tools the automatic submission is not showing up?

TY

Hello,

#1 yes, it's recommended to submit gzipped sitemap - search engines will recognize it.

#2 you can remove old sitemap now that new one is submitted. You can see details for the sitemap under *.hostedsitemaps.com domain entry in webmaster tools.

#3 you can order installation service if needed here: https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/generator-addons.html
