Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Sitemap includes deleted posts

  • Hi, I noticed my sitemaps includes deleted pages. They show up in the sitemap as “URL__trashed”. Of course, these pagess return a 404 error and I get an increasing number of 404 pages when I look up in Google Search Console.
    How can I solve this issue?

  • I have the same problem.

    Also having this issue, would love to have the deleted posts removed.

    have the same problem. anyone got the issue resolved?

    Getting the Index Coverage Issue message on Google Search Console. I’m seeing an old URL for a page that’s changed categories years ago, and thus also changed URL. This page should be in the sitemap with the new URL. So I think it’s not just deleted pages, but also pages with changed URLs. Maybe the plugin doesn’t refresh or purge existing URLs properly?

    Same problem for me.

    Very old (2011) deleted entries or author.
