First off, I just wanted to say I really love every aspect of TSF. It looks excellent and is so much less bloated than Yoast. I really appreciate the work you’ve done.
I am, however, running across an issue with the sitemap indexing my homepage. I launched the site a couple days ago, and turned off the “noindex” options, but the root / isn’t showing up in the TSF generated sitemap. Here are some of the settings:
Home Page > Robots
Everything is unchecked as suggested.
Robots Meta Settings > Indexing
Unchecked – Apply NoIndex to Category Archives
Unchecked – Apply NoIndex to Tag Archives
Checked – Apply NoIndex to Author Archives
Checked – Apply NoIndex to Date Archives
Checked – Apply NoIndex to Search Pages
Checked – Apply NoIndex to Attachment Pages
Unchecked – Apply NoIndex to entire site
I also just noticed that my category pages aren’t included in the sitemap either. Any Idea why?
It should be noted that I’m using the “Your latest posts” option for the homepage.
I can’t tell if this issue will actually affect my SEO or SERPs because I’m also having issues with robots.
I’ll include this extra info just in case it’s somehow related, but I’m not expecting you to figure out this issue.
When I search Mid Mod Mango in Google, it comes back as being blocked by robots.txt. I checked my Search Console, and this is what Google saw on the 17th of this month:
User-agent: * Disallow: /wp-admin/ Allow: /wp-admin/admin-ajax.php Sitemap: http://midmodmango.com/sitemap.xml
I’ve run the homepage through Google’s robot tested and it came back “allowed”.
I’m hoping this is just a time thing.
Thanks for any help you’re able to provide.
I appreciate it!
