AIOSEO site map Cropped images error in Google Webmaster tools
Cropped Images not found on Google Search Console
Cropped images and deleted images can cause a problem in Google search console since they are still submitted by some SEO plugins , especially AIOSEO sitemap that submits taxonomies and creates an attachment page for each image .
Some themes are also automatically creates a cropped image for favicon, site icon , etc.
The problem generally appears in Google search console as 404 or page not found . The origin of the problem is that these deleted photos does not exist in the media library anymore , but their attachment pages are still submitted in the sitemap to google .
There is no information over the web regarding this issue for people who are using AIOSEO xml sitemap.
After extensive research and trials and errors , i have found the solution which can be summarized by the following steps :
1- Install the following two plugins : File Manager and Image Clean Up.
