Hello,

I lately noticed that only items at first page are indexed by Google and also found in my XML sitemaps.

I have setup each page to display 30 items and I have both plugins installed:

Another WordPress Classifieds Plugin (3.6 or newer): Installed
Google XML Sitemap Generator (3.2.5 or newer): Installed

Is there a specific settings that I’m missing?

I also just updated my XML settings under the Classifieds-XML Sitemap Options and I get those PHP notices:

PHP Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /wp-content/plugins/awpcp-xml-sitemap/awpcp-xml-sitemap.php on line 143

PHP Strict Standards: Only variables should be assigned by reference in /wp-content/plugins/awpcp-xml-sitemap/awpcp-xml-sitemap.php on line 170

 

Thanks.

Hi sctpfwape,

Which version of WP are you using?

How long has your site been up?

You are using an older version of AWPCP, I suggest updating to the latest version first.

Here is an article as well that should guide you with search engine optimization https://awpcp.com/forum/faq/seo-recommendations-for-awpcp/

Hello,

I’m running all latest versions, both WP and AWPCP and my site is up since 2 years.

I just read your article about Yoast which I use already but don’t well understand why, when I first installed AWPCP, you recommended installing those 2 plugins:

 

Another WordPress Classifieds Plugin (3.6 or newer): Installed
Google XML Sitemap Generator (3.2.5 or newer): Installed

Should I keep them or remove them if I run Yoast?

Sorry I was meaning those 2 plugins:

AWPCP XML Sitemap Plugin

Google XML Sitemap Generator

 

Your indications are quite confusing about Yoast: why we now have 3 plugins generating sitemaps?

Why are the above 2 plugins recommended and what for?

I just checked at Google Search Console and the Yoast sitemap only submitted 31 URLs (my site displays 30 ads/page) and I can’t see any second page ads in there.

Hi sctpfwape,

You must only have AWPCP XML Sitemap with Yoast SEO. In that manner, your ads will get indexed correctly.

The description of your AWPCP XML Sitemap plugin is as follows:

Adds AWPCP’s classified ad entries to XML sitemaps generated by Google XML Sitemaps Generator plugin (http://www.arnebrachhold.de/pr…..generator/).

Now you state that we should use Yoast with this plugin.

Please clarify.

Hi sctpfwape,

We support both Yoast and Google XML Sitemaps. Apologies as the docs need to be updated. However, you should be seeing all ads show up on the sitemap.
