Google sitemap checkin

Hey there!

I just wanted to checkin with Google sitemaps. I can see now that the following dynamic sitemap (once posted) in the Google search console is being crawled daily.

/sitemap-posts.xml Sitemap 23 Dec 2021 19 Jan 2022 Success

Is there anything else I need to do?

Thanks
:)

I can also report the same with my sitemap. I submitted /sitemap-index.xml and when I click that inside the search console I also see the following sitemaps:

1VIBE Sitemaps

Im not sure if there is more for us to do beyond this.

Yup, this should suffice.

Once you get past 10k posts you can add paged sitemaps, and they are zero-indexed, so you can add https://dev.to/sitemap-posts-1.xml, https://dev.to/sitemap-posts-2.xml, etc. for every 10k published posts that meet your configured minimum score for indexing.

One more qq here, when a comment is added to a post, does the post get flagged for a re crawl? Or are posts included elsewhere?
