    @nuprn1 I just noticed something last night, the files that we’re creating are all named something like “bp-sitemap-activity.xml” and “bp-sitemap.xml”. But aren’t the search engines looking for a file named “sitemap.xml”?

    On Google webmasters tool you can specify the name and location of your xml sitemaps. It also shows you how many links are indexed by google on the sitemaps you use. I believe Yahoo has a similar feature.

    @antonrsa is correct, you just point webmaster tools sitemap location to bp-sitemap.xml which is the parent for all the child maps.
