I am using the Rank Math free service. Very happy! Will probably go to the full version once we have enough traffic.
Meanwhile, there is an issue with the indexing of term pages made with the CM Glossary Tooltip plugin. rather than contacting Rank Math themselves, the developers of this plugin advised us to contact you and ask you for a fix (bad service!!! Rank Math is no insignificant plugin… they should contact you themselves, I’d say…).
They emailed this: Our plugin doesn’t get included in the process of creating the XML file. As I can see, the links in the XML files are generated correctly. This file generated by Rank Math WordPress SEO Plugin so I recommend asking this plugin support for help. From our side, we are ready to implement any changes they will suggest.
This seems to be the case:
This plugin CM Glossary Tooltip offers the option to relabel the Glossary term pages it creates. In this case, we relabelled the ‘Glossary’ pages to ‘Explainers’. Rank Math does not create a sitemap with this relabelled term, creating aglossary sitemap instead – thus they are not indexed. We can submit these pages to Google individually.
So: the post type ‘Explainer’ gets the sitemap: https://nextinstitute.org/GLOSSARY-sitemap.xml (which we cannot change), rather than ‘https://nextinstitute.org/EXPLAINER-sitemap.xml’. Or it could be ‘https://nextinstitute.org/EXPLAINERS-sitemap.xml’, because on these term pages use the plural in the URL (example: https://nextinstitute.org/EXPLAINERS/superintelligence).
We tried submitting these sitemaps to Google, but not accepted. So, somehow, the relabelling does not translate into a sitemap. I’d say this is something they need to fix, but they are waiting for suggestions from you guys….
Can you advice a fix.
