Including ghost sitemap in your site's sitemap

Hi all,

I have a site and a blog. Blog is hosted in ghost platform and it is accessible through “mysite.com/blog”.

I am new to SEO and I want to add Sitemap to my site. Since ghost generates sitemap automatically for each posts, how can I connect ghost sitemap to my site’s sitemap? also do I have to modify my site’s sitemap often?

please help. TIA

I think your best bet is to link the sitemaps in the robots.txt file. In that case, you won’t have to do any manual maintenance!

Google robots.txt reference

Sitemap: https://example.com/sitemap.xml
Sitemap: https://example.com/blog/sitemap.xml

Thanks for your help.

Also do i have to ping google after i add new blog posts??
and my posts are not showing up in google search even if i search the whole blog titile, any idea whats wrong?

As far as I’m aware, Ghost automatically does this for you :slight_smile:

It can take several days for a search engine to find your content, and there’s no guarantee you’ll be the first hit in Google. However, Google has a Search Console that can show you what it knows about your site. You can learn more about it and connect your site at https://search.google.com/search-console/about. This tool will also take a few days to populate your site data.
