Images do not appear in xml sitemap

  • Hi. I have read through all the previous posts on the topic and don’t see the fix.

    My site images do not appear on my xml sitemap (except for one page, not sure why that one’s working)
    “Include images” is selected in the plugin settings.
    Most pages of the site have several images.
    All have titles and alt tags.

    Support admin access and sitemap url in sensitive data below.

    Any help much appreciated, thank you!

  • Hello,

    I have checked but I was able to find images in your sitemap, as shown in the screencast I attached in the Sensitive Data section. Could you check it?

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thank you for the quick response.

    I see from the image url that images have a separate sitemap. Is that correct? If so why on the regular site map does one of my pages have 5 images and the rest zero?

    Do I submit that image sitemap to google as well?

    Thank you 🙂

    I just added a screen shot. I show zeros where in your screen cast I can clearly see that you are correct and images appear on the sitemap. Why is mine different?

    thank you 🙂


    The image you uploaded seems to have expired, could you check it?

    About uploading sitemaps to Google, you just need to upload sitemap_index.xml file, not any other, since Google will be able to find every other using that sitemap.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hi thank you for all the follow up. Not sure why but now images appear in site map on my end too.
    Closing ticket.
    Excellent support. 🙂
