  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Is it possible that you have defined the Strip category base option on the Rank Math settings? This option can be found in General Settings > Links > Strip category base. Please note that it is not recommended to change this since the URLs have already been defined on your sitemap and would need that you resubmit the sitemap on Google for the new URLs to be crawled.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Michael,

    Strip category base is off.

    HI there,

    Thanks for the response.

    Would you mind sharing some temporary admin access on the sensitive data section so that I can check this issue for you?

    I am looking forward to helping you.

    Hi Michael,

    Shared in the sensitive data, please check.

    Rahul

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Upon checking further, it does not look like you have set up your categories to be included in your URLs at WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks.
    permalink settings

    If you want the categories to show up in your URLs, here is the permalink structure for that:
    /%category%/%postname%/

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Thanks Todd. Will do. Btw, if I change the published posts to include the categories now, do you think it will affect indexing?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    Yes this will require that you resubmit your sitemap to Google so that the bots can re-index the new URLs.

    I hope this info helps.

    Thank you!

    Hi Rahul,
