Hi Louise, I personally have my google sitemap deactivated. I do believe it causes a conflict with the already built in AIO site map for google. Haven't had any problems in almost two years.

Best wishes,
Michael

Hello Michael,
Thank you,

I haven’t been aware that I have any problems with it, it’s just a message I got when I updated the All in one SEO.
Having investigated further the sitemap on the SEO isn’t activated, so I only have the one from the initial website set up training by Kyle activated which is Google xml sitemap.

I'm planning to grasp this nettle today myself.
I have been using the Google XML sitemaps plugin - as per WA training but it has been causing problems recently so I am planning to dump it and use the sitemap feature within All in one SEO.
I'm a bit concerned about it's effect on my site as the rankings have been steadily improving for a while. Hopefully I wont break that!

I changed it a full weeks prior to my 1& 2 position so it was actually better by that measure not that has anything to do with it apart from to ensure submission to index article in the first instance!! ;

Ok - I've done it.
Google XML deactivated.
Sitemap now supplied by All in One SEO
It has the same URL as the old one so hopefully I dont need to do anything else

Some say yes some say no...I had I suspect as most issues with it so I finally took the plunge and deleted it only not without ensuring that the one inside the SEO three in one was being recognised by Google search console. Google don't really care where it comes from so far as they recognise its from you....

So far I have not had any issues touch wood and certainly glad to get rid of it...it doesn't work properly...ha ha ;

Do you have another active sitemap plugin other than All in One? Perhaps from Kyle's training? If you do you should deactivate one, otherwise they can conflict with each other.

Hello, hope you’re both well.
Yes I have the sitemap plugin from the original training, if I deactivate it do I have to redo all the sitemap stuff for Google to continue recognising my website?
Thank you

Hi Louise. It will depend on which sitemap plugin you prefer to use. It sounds like maybe you were using the Google XML sitemap and then, following the recent All in One update, the All in One sitemap got activated as Trish mentions in her message below. For some reason that did not happen to us so we have no experience of how to deal with it. However, we are confident that whatever solution Trish offers will more than likely work.

Not I. But I did have a site map issue. I went to the WA technical people for advice.
