The donation progress bar is intended to show how much support we have received and how much is still missing to cover the basic costs, such as hosting and services. The annual costs currently amount to 356€.

Google search Console and htaccess file

9 months 2 weeks ago #437 by Leon
Hi.

Your documentation says:
"Insert this code snippet into your htaccess file, but don't do this if you don't know how to edit your htaccess file!
RewriteRule ^sitemap\.xml$ /index.php?option=com_schuweb_sitemap&view=xml&tmpl=component&id=1 [L] "

If I use sitemap for Google search Console, should I add this line to the htaccess file ?
Or is it enough for Google indexing that I will add a link to 
/index.php?option=com_schuweb_sitemap&view=xml&id=1 
to the Sitemaps tab of Google Search Console? 

Thanks

Hi and welcome Leon,

sorry for the late response I somehow overseen that there is a new message.

Google is changing his behaviour from time to time. So you can just add the long link and see what happens. If google complains, that he wants a xml file you still can do that Rule.

The last time I checked it was ok for google und only yahoo or bing wanted the sitemap.xml file name
