I have come across this thread and have a similar question. I have installed the plug in Google XML site map. It is active and connected to my wordpress site and seems to be working. What I would like to know is that do I have to do anything else to submit a site map to Google/bing in the Google console not on the website?
If so can you give me some tips on how to get the coding for the site map to be submitting in Google Console.
