Site:**name of domain** only showing archives

  • HI, when I do a site:(see sensitive data for full search) search in Google I only see archive results via tag or category but no individual page entries (except for a few right at the end that are new).

    The sitemap generated by Rank Math has the pages listed so I am wondering what has happened. Can you look into this or give advice or check my settings and see if there is an issue?

  • Hello,

    Could you share with us some images of some excluded URLs? So we can try to look at your website why those ones were excluded.

    Looking forward to help you.


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

    Thank you.


    Please check the Screencast I shared in the sensitive data section.

    All 4 URLs you mentioned as crawled but not indexed are actually indexed just fine.

    For the pagination pages not being included in the sitemap, that is fine and done on purpose. They serve no purpose int he sitemap.

    Todd, the problem is that Google is still selecting the old URL as canonical whereas the new URL in the sitemap is being excluded.

    I think this is just going to have to be a ‘suck it and see’ time thing until the old ones are properly flushed out.

    That’s why they are currently excluded since Google thinks its a duplicate of the current cached old version.

    You can noindex paginated pages if you like.

    You can do that from WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Links.

    That won’t change the canonical conflict between the old URL and the new URL. We cut out the dates in our permalinks to tighten up things, hence why we resubmitted.

    However, before we did there were still a lot of exclusions that we put down to Google cache slowly churning through post Yoast migration.

    Oh, I see.
