Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Sitemap Index Pending

  • I will try and be as thorough as I can be here.

    I was using Yoast SEO’s site map for a very long time. However, I found a few bugs and issues so I decided to DEACTIVATE and go with Google XML MAPS.

    Heres what is odd:

    I checked and at https://www.usedpart.us/robots.txt nothing is blocked on there at all.

    So I go to my search console as well as Bing Webmaster Tools:

    I input “https://www.usedpart.us/sitemap.xml” for almost 8 days now just says pending.

    I have 21,380 or so urls. So, I go and remove the usedpart.us/sitemap.xml url, and replace with all the sub folders of the sitemap. Now, it shows how many urls were submitted per each folder in the site map, but pending (I know it take a day or two)

    Heres where I’m confused: why didn’t it even show how many urls were submitted when I just put the https://www.usedpart.us/sitemap.xml?

    I did notice one of the sitemap folders had almost 14k urls, should or could I break those into other folders to reduce the amount or does that not matter?

    I would send a screen shot of all options I have selected on my settings, but it doesnt give me the ability. The upload sitemap into virtual robots.txt is UNCHECKED because in my FTP files I have a robots.txt.

    Should I remove and reinstall the plug in? Anyone see this this before?
