Is there any importance in the position of sitemap keyword in robots.txt?
Specifically my query is, I have some disallow URL's in my robots.txt. But the same links are appearing in sitemap.xml and sitemap.xml is placed at the end of robots.txt file. Will the links specified in disallow section omitted when crawling? Or do i need to add the disallow links after sitemap declaration?
Also, If i add an old url to disallow section, will it remove from the google search index?
