    Hello Everyone

    A Newbie here to ask :D

    I've submitting my Blog Sitemap into Bing And Mr.G

    I Use Google XML Sitemap Wordpress Plugin to creating my sitemap

    And now, i've plan to remove my sitemap in Google Webmaster tools and change it with my new sitemap that created with Yoast Seo.

    My Question is

    1. Is It Too Risky To Do That? I Mean is it will changing my Google Rank Position after i remove my sitemap or worsened will my blog will removed on Mr.G and indexed again with my new sitemap?

    2. Is there any something that i need to know before decide my decision?

    3. Or should i not to remove my old sitemap?

    It won't impact your site rankings. You can change your sitemap plugin. Make sure you did not change the url structure.

    it won't affect your site rankings and then better to update your new sitemap in google webmaster tool directly

    There is no risk to change the new sitemap for your blog.
    You have to follow the procedures properly while changing from old sitemap to new sitemap.

    There's no evidence that Sitemap will affect your rankings if you remove your old sitemap and put your new sitemap,
    it will only be indexed and crawled by GWT.
