  • Hi Carlos,

     

    Yes. You can use index files. Don't forget to add the location to the index file in your robots.txt file though.

  • Hi Brett,

    Thanks for you answer, I have my robots.txt file like that:
    User-agent: *
    Sitemap: http://www.mysite.com/sitemap-index.xml
    and the sitemap index content like that:
    <sitemapindex xsi: schemaLocation="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9 http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9/siteindex.xsd">
    −
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.mysite.com/sitemap.xml.gz</loc>
    <lastmod>2009-01-01</lastmod>
    </sitemap>
    −
    <sitemap>
    <loc>http://www.mysite.com/sitemap-1.xml.gz</loc>
    <lastmod>2009-01-01</lastmod> </sitemap> </sitemapindex>

    It has given me good results in google and I wanted to know if the same standard was remaining in live search of msn
    thanks,
    Carlos
