  • Resolved Sharunas

    (@bumerangas)


    WordPress version: 3.3.2
    WordPress SEO version: Version 1.1.9/development version

    I did this: Enabled Sitemap XML functionality

    I expected the plugin to do this: My posts have 1 image and sitemap xml should show 1, but instead post show 2 or even 3 images in post sitemap?

    I disabled all plugins, but that didn’t help. My site: best job center dot com

    It shows the featured image too.

    Hmm, my all post has feature images, but this problem persist not on all posts.

    Plugin just on some post duplicating images in sitemap.xml

    Dude, write complete sentences and show me the issue…

    bestjobcenter dot com/post-sitemap.xml

    Post: bestjobcenter dot com/2009/11/finding-uk-legal-jobs/ has 2 image, but sitemap shows 3 for exampl.

    Your replay “It shows the featured image too.” – wrong:

    bestjobcenter dot com/2011/03/part-time-job-search-tips-for-seniors/ has 1 image and sitemap shows 1 as it should be.

    Both posts has featured image enabled.

    On other sites exact same bug, sitemap for some post shows correct image count on others +1???

    Why are you obscuring those links? You can just add normal links right?

    Please try the development version and see if that improves the situation. You can find it here: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordpress-seo/developers/

    As I mentioned above, I already tried the development version.

    Tried once more, no success.

    + in Google webmasters I see 31 images submitted instead of 24 on other site.

    This is some kind of bug that duplicating images, is there an option to remove images in the sitemap at all?

    Looks like it is major issue on other sites that using WordPress Seo By Yoast – exact same problem.

    First of all, it’s not a major issue. It might be an issue, but a major issue would be if it was detrimental to your rankings, which it is not. Second, I’m still not clear on what you think the bug is. Show me what it is in the XML and what you expect it to be.

    I expect my sitemap show correct image count on post. To some posts it shows correct image count on others shows more, instead of 1 shows 2 or instead of 2 shows 3 (+1).

    Please check my post and sitemap.xml above if I’m not clear enough.

    Thanks for trying to help. Your plugin is great anyway!

    For that second post the featured image and the image in the post are the exact same. For the other post, the featured image is of a different size than the image embedded in the post, resulting in the plugin adding both to the XML sitemap. It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    Ok, thanks.
