Check my image, you need to submit all sitemaps individually, there is no master sitemap that contains all your site info.

You only need to submit sitemap_index.xml

Here's what yours looks like:

Well, I submitted all 18 individual sitemaps I was provided by Yoast. I think it's a bit confusing that they wouldn't put a disclaimer there to clarify which XML has to be submitted.  :o

You have more control on the indiviual site maps, so I am happy the way I have it set up. When an error comes up you can pin point where it is. And you can resubmit individual site maps. But I am only speaking for myself.

Hey, I'm so confused at this point that I don't know what to do with Yoast.  :'(

However, Leo's SYS sitemap is producing for me already, just a few hours after I uploaded it. My webtools shows 890 URLs and images submitted. I think that's progress.

Back to wrestling with Yoast.

Leo is doing great work.

I submitted his Symbiostock XML sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools and 30 minutes later every single of my 2275 images have been indexed by Google. Talk about doing a phenomenal job!

I had Yoast's one URL sitemap submitted to Google Webmaster Tools last week and it's still not fully indexed.

Awesome stuff.

This is where I control all my sitemaps, its in Google WT


Thanks for that, Ron. It gave me the info I needed.

I've just submitted my Yoast sitemap. Here's what I did:

Copied and pasted the URL that Yoast provided (http://bestnaturestock.com/sitemap.xsl) into a page that Ron's screenshot showed the way to.

Now my Google WT shows that both sitemaps (Leo's & Yoast's) have been submitted. Yoast's contains 4,160 web pages and 1,783 images.  That's more than I thought I had... but it's better than nothing at all.

Leo should be president. Although he doesn't like to hear this kind of stuff, I think he must be some super being or something.

I think if Leo was CEO of Google, he would take every single IT company worldwide out of business instantly.  8)

Awesome stuff.

I too would vote for Leo for president!

I wonder why, tho, your sitemap has an xsl extension and mine has an xml.

Actually, mine has xml too. I just typed it wrong in my previous post. Oops!

Why is there so much difference? I use Leos sitemap and after 6 weeks 70% is indexed of 940 images. You have over 2200 images indexed in 30 minutes. I believe Google takes up to a month to index. Are we talking about the same thing?

I wondered about that too. I already had some images indexed when i added the SY sitemap, but it took another week for almost all of the images to show up.

Here's an update. Approx. 10 hours after I finally got both Leo's SYS and Yoast's sitemaps uploaded to Google, my Google web tools page is showing this result:

Webpages: of 4160 submitted, 1718 have been indexed.

Images: of 1783 submitted, 789 have been indexed.

Some of those may have been indexed already, but still it seems to be going faster than I expected. Pretty impressive, actually.

once submitted, google automatically checks for the latest sitemaps

with yoast, they limit the image xml to 1000 (you can reset this, too), and then create additional ones as needed, so if you pass the next 1000 level, you  need to add the new image  sitemap once
