Can anyone give me sitemap help?

Can anyone give me sitemap help?

asked in
Search Engine Optimization

I am so frustrated with this I'm ready to give up. And I've read so much conflicting information on this problem, and none of it has helped.

One of my websites (trackmywe

Update: Site Support fixed the problem in like three minutes after I submitted the support ticket. Yay! Now I have a nice sitemap for all my websites. :^)

I just saw your posting. I would of recommend contacting siteSupport. I had problem with it on one of my websites. They fixed it within minutes.

I am glad you have it resolved. YAY!!!

Do you mean you just activate and deactivate the SEO plugin in the dashboard? If this the case, then you did not activate your sitemap. You just activate the plugin. This is why you don’t have a sitemap. To activate sitemap in All in One SEO, go back into the dashboard and activate the SEO plugin. Then click on the SEO setting, you will see the Feature Manager click on this. In the feature manager, you will find your sitemap, where you have to activate the sitemap. This will turn on the sitemap for you so you can go in an configuring the sitemap for your site.

I include some pictures. Hope this help.

I did add the XML sitemap and activate it. I didn't just add All-in-One SEO. It simply is not working.

OK, did you go into the sitemap setup and configure to dynamically Generate Sitemap and submit it to google?

I went back and double checked, and yes, it is configured to dynamically generate sitemap.

I understand that this is a fairly common problem, but no one seems to agree on how to remedy it. I've asked Site Support for help now. If they can't help me I guess I just have to live without a sitemap for this one website.

It's odd because my other sites have beautiful sitemaps, LOL.

Don't quit!! Just keep plugging along with the help of others.

No quitting in this group! I have had issues with sitemap myself a couple of times and was nothing I did. Contact Site support and they will fix it up for you real quick!

Always reach out before you get to the point of frustration. There are always answers here for you!

Hi Christine, I did put this question out on WA a few days ago. That was when someone suggested I get rid of All-in-One and go with Yoast and deactivate other plug-ins in case they were interfering in some way, but it didn't fix the problem.

It's just interesting to me how there can be no consensus on how to remedy what seems to be a fairly common problem. I've read so many different solutions, but none of them have worked for me.

I also read that you don't need a sitemap unless you have several hundred posts/pages on your website. Could this be true?

I'll watch the video that Mike put up, and if that doesn't work I'll contact Site Support.

All you should have to do is go to as I and click on sitemap. Save yourself some time and contact support. Mine was fine and all of a sudden it wasn't. They will fix it.

Don't quit. That means that fear has won.

Thanks, Mike. I will watch this later this afternoon.

Welp, I looked at the info in the link, Mike. I'm not sure this is the type of sitemap that I can submit to Google to enable more efficient crawling though.

When I go to Google console (or analytics, whatever it is) I'm unable to submit the sitemap URL because there's nothing there.

That's what I'm trying to accomplish with the sitemap.

Why do I have an empty sitemap?

I've searched all over trying to find an answer for this one, but turned up nothing helpful. Mostly I found info on how to use the All-in-One SEO XML Sitemap feature.

Well, this took a little tracking down, Susan. You've got 3 websites listed on your profile page and 2 of them don't have a problem with the sitemaps.
https://yourwordsintomoney.com/sitemap.xml
https://tokinggranny.com/sitemap.xml
Now what did you do that's different with
https://trackmyweightloss.com/sitemap.xml ?

Did you activate the Sitemap section of All In One SEO? Deactivate and delete all plugins that have the potential to create a sitemap. Then Install Yoast SEO plugin and see if that one works. You may have to clear the cache. If you don't know how to do that then ask Site Support.

Thanks, Marion.

Yes, it's just the TrackMyWeightLoss that I'm having an issue with. I had noticed that the XML Sitemap through All-in-One SEO hadn't been activated, so I added it and that's when I discovered the empty sitemap.

So, after researching the problem I deactivated the All-in-One and added the Google XML Sitemap instead but got the same results.

The plug-ins I have are All-in-One SEO (with XML Sitemaps deactivated), EWWW Image Optimizer, Kirki Toolkit, Metabox, Tablepress, WP GDPR Compliance, and the Google XML Sitemaps.

Do you know which ones of those plug-ins have the potential to create a sitemap? I don't. Do I really have to deactivate all of those?

Well, I'll get rid of All-in-one and try the Yoast SEO plug in.

How much content do you have? If all you have are noindex pages, you'll have a blank sitemap except for the main page.

I have quite a bit of content on this particular site, so that's not an issue.
