Title: two sitemaps - possible downside?
Post by: nickyfsh on 05-08-2013, 06:29:37
Dear community,

I am using a web shop software and for some reason the main page (http://www.mysite.com/) is not being listed / generated within the automatic sitemap.xml while every other page is.

My question now: Without dabbling to much into technicalities and why the page is not being generated in the first place I would like to know if this problem can be solved by just simply manually creating an additional sitemap file (calling it sitemap-home.xml) which just contains information related to the index and submit it?

e.g.:

Code:
Only registered users can see contents. Please click here to Register or Login.
Would this approach work and if so, would there be any considerable downsides?

Some expert advise would be appreciated.

Thank you very much,
Nicky
