I used to use Google XML Sitemaps in my wordpress website, now I installed RankMath plugin and want to use its sitemaps, I setup RankMath properly and link it to google search console, but I have an important question :
When I go to google search console I found sitemap like this : /sitemap.xml
which is the sitemap of Google XML Sitemaps, which I added before from Google XML Sitemaps plugin .
and on the other hand I see sitemaps of RankMath like this /sitemap_index.xml
Now should I delete older sitemap /sitemap.xml , from google search console and add /sitemap_index.xml instead of it ? is that right ? and is it affecting my site ranking in google ?
Or should I keep and do not add sitemaps of RankMath ?
Or should I add sitemaps of RankMath, and keep the older one ?
I hope you help me soon .
thank you in advance .
