  • Just one question.
    For example right now i have 10 posts, i submit my xml now in Google Webmasters, then after some days if i write more articles, do i have to submit again or it will submit upcoming posts automatically?

    • No you don’t have to submit it again, Because the sitemap updates automatically when you write a new post and Google crawler will crawl your new post once they found it in Sitemap.
