    Hmmm, I wonder if this is because the urls are in non-standard characters

    Anyone have any experience with this?

    There's a lot of discussion about this going on... Around 7 January 2020, google ran some sort of an update and people are reporting problems with indexing.
    Supposedly, google doesn't read the sitemap and de-indexes pages for no reason... But people manage to re-index the pages using indexers.

    This is because you have added the wrong URL to Google Search Console.

    You added
    http://shqiptech.com/sitemap_index.xml
    which is the index of your sitemaps.

    when you should be adding the actual sitemap URLs

    https://shqiptech.com/post-sitemap.xml
    https://shqiptech.com/page-sitemap.xml
    https://shqiptech.com/category-sitemap.xml

    So remove the /sitemap_index.xml and add the ones you want and it will be fixed.
