WordPress Compression Plugin and Indexing Issues

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by teejay38, Jul 1, 2016.

    Hello everyone, quick question ... recently (last week Friday) we redesigned our website (just design). We didn't add or redirect any pages... URLs were not touched. However, we used a new WordPress plugin that compressed our files and structured our sitemap differently ... supposedly this was going to help with the speed of our site...

    The point is, we re-submitted our sitemap to Google and only 500 URLS out of 1800 have been indexed thus far... we've noticed that each day that goes by less pages are indexed .... Does anyone know what the problem could be? ... No pages are being blocked ...I know it takes times for pages to get indexed ... just wondering if the new sitemap structure has anything to do with it is all ....

    maybe your xml sitemap is limited by 500. Try to generate sitemap with another plugin (such as: Google XML Sitemaps) and re-submit, this may help you resolve it.

    If you have created custom sitemap, there must be problem while submitting (that is second case)
    If you have created sitemap using online tool, then it supports only 500 pages for free, you should upgrade the option then easily you can submit URL to crawl.

    Coming for problem why all pages are not being submitted is; there must be a duplicate entry or txt blocking issue. this time, allow Google ind.ex completely and let Google crawl all your URL.
