Hey Steve,

I noticed on one of my new client sites, they are using a competing plugin and have split the sitemaps into page-sitemap.xml and post-sitemap.xml.

I looked into this and found this blog post on MOZ: https://moz.com/blog/multiple-xml-sitemaps-increased-indexation-and-traffic

While increased traffic and a boost is not guaranteed, it seemingly can happen.

See the screenshot here for the client’s Search Console sitemaps, whereas two are registered for posts and pages.

Is there a method to do this with AIOSEO Pack?

Okay, thanks. Yes, I knew about that feature, but never turned it on, because of Google’s recommendation. But if the primary site map is an indice and lists sub site maps and those sitemaps are submitted individually, like in the example, do you see a problem with that at this time. And, based on the MOZ example in the article I found today?

Sorry for the confusion. What I should have said is, yes, I am aware of how to toggle on and off “Enable Sitemap Indexes,” but since the recommendation has always been to not enable it under 50,000 URLs, I never actually turned it on myself to better understand what it does (even though I’ve trained others on AIOSEO in the past…oy!)

I’ve always simply left it alone based on the recommendation. But now that I’m reading this MOZ article about registering each different sitemap (when “Enable Sitemap Indexs” is toggled to enabled) related to a post type or category, I was curious to know your thoughts about the article and why they found that strategy to be advantageous in some way – which it says is not guaranteed, but they’ve seen some improvements.

And, yes, I how have enabled sitemap indexes on my tonyzeol.com site and see the full set of sitemaps that are created once the feature is turned on. I am now aware at how sitemaps are handled when “on” or “off” and when compressed.

Do you have an opinion on the MOZ blog results, or do you think that’s overkill for a small site and registering a single sitemap should be fine?

And, when the sitemap is compressed, should you submit “sitemap.xml” to Google Search Console or “sitemap.xml.gz” to Google Search Console?

When do you recommend turning on compression? Seems like that would be on a site where the sitemap files is very large.
