  • photoarth



    I installed your great plugin.

    I have choosen the wrong page for 404 page and seloected my homepage and saved.

    Now it is excluded from the sitemap.

    I tried to select an other page and hoped my homepage would be included in the sitemap again. But it is still not included. I use Yoast sitemap.

    Is there a way to include the page in sitemap again?

    Best regards

    Hello again. Dont feelrushed, but I have some additional Information:

    First: The page i have this issue is – I put in the wrong page in my first post.

    In this forum I found:
    It is perfectly correct to inform Google that a page does not exist. This is exactly what the HTML code 404 is intended for. This informs Google that the page should be removed from the index. That is not a negative thing.

    I ask myself is the 404 page marked as “don´t show in the index” and how can i remove this mark manually? I changed the 404 site but still have problems to crawl the site which is not 404 anymore in google search console. I get an 404, but the page is ok and not set to be 404-page. How can i tell google it is a normal page or delete the marker on my page?

    Hope you understand? I am not a pro but working on my skills.

    Best regards

    Hi Marcus,

    sorry for the delay. As far as I know all sitemap plugins cache the created sitemap for some time. This sounds like a caching problem to me. Please check how to clear the sitemap cache of the plugin you’re using to create the sitemap.

    By the way, you cam write in German…
