reubmitting site maps after converting to smartcrawl

Hi,
After setting up a new smartcrawl on a site do I need to reubmit the site maps tot he search engines? I'm switching sites from yoast to smart crawl.

    Hello Corn,

    I hope you're well today and thank you for your question!

    The Yoast SEO plugin by default creates sitemaps under the "domain.com/sitemap_index.xml" URL while SmartCrawl puts them under the "domain.com/sitemap.xml" URL.

    That means that you will want to inform search engines about that new sitemap location because otherwise they'll be reading old sitemaps created by Yoast that are no longer updated.

    I hope that helps!

    Best regards,
    Adam
