Manually entering page on Sitemap

  • Is there a way to manually add a page to the sitemap through rankmath? I have one page that is mapped to go to a subdomain for seo purposes and because it is a subdomain it’s not showing on the sitemap, or at least that’s what I believe. Can this be done through RankMath? By the way I just started using the plugin and it’s been great! Wonderful job.

  • Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Hi William,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    You can use this filter to add custom URLs to your sitemap: https://rankmath.com/kb/filters-hooks-api-developer/#add-extra-urls-in-sitemap

    The fields are pretty self-explanatory. If you still need a hand though, let us know.

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

    Thank you for the quick response Todd. What is the best Method / the best file to alter? functions.php? Sorry I’m relatively new to this.

    Hi William,

    Oh, that’s my bad. So sorry.

    You have to add that code in your theme’s functions.php file. Add it towards the very end.

    Let me know if you need further help with that.

    No problem, thanks for the reply again. So I entered the filter into the bottom of theme’s functions.php file yesterday but it’s still not on there. Is there something I need to do to activate it or something?

    I added this right before the end.

    /**
    * Filter to add extra URLs to the XML sitemap by type.
    *
    * Only runs for the first page, not on all.
    *
    * @param string $content String content to add, defaults to empty.
    */
    add_action( ‘rank_math/sitemap/{$type}_content’, function() {

    });
    function rank_math_add_custom_dynamic_url( $urls ) {
    $urls .= ‘
    https://seo.wjb.marketing/
    2019-02-22T18:02:24+00:00
    ‘;

    return $urls;
    }

    Hi William,

    This is the correct code:

    /**
    * Filter to add extra URLs to the XML sitemap by type.
    *
    * Only runs for the first page, not on all.
    *
    * @param string $content String content to add, defaults to empty.
    */
    add_action( 'rank_math/sitemap/page_content', function() {
        return '<url>
    		    <loc>https://seo.wjb.marketing/</loc>
    		    <lastmod>2019-02-22T18:02:24+00:00</lastmod>
    	    </url>';
    });

    This will add the link to your page-sitemap.xml file.

    So make sure to delete the cache before you try to find the URL in the sitemap file.

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

    That fixed it! Thank you so much! Especially for your patients. You’ve been great! I’m going to convert the rest of by clients site over from yoast and when you all make a premium plugin I’ll get it!

    Thanks again!
