Hi, I have a couple of issues with my site. I have checked with the theme creators, and CDN support- all should be good on their end, so hopefully you can solve this for me.
1. Images are not being included in the sitemap. I have about 2000 images on my site, but only about a forth of them are in the sitemap. Why? Are my settings wrong or could it be because I use galleries in my blog posts where most of the images are?
2. Of the images in my sitemap only 1 (!) image is indexed.
 
What am I doing wrong? All my images are individually named and could hopefully improve my ranking..
 
 
 
Thanks

Hi Steve, yes I belive that makes sense. I am using a visual page builder and the gallery that is included in my theme. It kinda looks like the photos from pages (where there is a visual page builder) are being indexed, but not the images from blog posts (using a shortcode to a gallery). But the photos from the galleries themselves are not being indexed either. 

All my images are from my media gallery (although I am also using CDN), except for a very few that comes from instagram, but I don’t really care about those I think. Could it be the CDN that is messing this up for me? And would that mean that I need to include the address to the cdn and not *.cdninstagram.com?

I understand I cannot force google to crawl or index, but it has been months and months now and nothing is being indexed (well – almost all my pages, but not images).

 

Thanks!

Thank you. I’ve done that now. Do I need to remake the sitemap, or will it all just happen by itself from now? 🙂

Not sure I understand what I can follow, but when can I expect that this is fixed? 🙂

Hello,

My images are not being indexed and not showing on XML Sitemap. They are hosted on my site. I am using Avada theme, which has Fusion Builder, however I use this on other sites too and the images are indexed on those sites, so I don’t believe it’s the page builder.

I have NOINDEX set for Media/Attachments, however, I believe the NOINDEX only applies to the image attachment pages, not the images file URLs.

Thank you.

Hello Steve,

Thank you for your reply. I didn’t realize the images were listed in a column. I thought they would be listed separately, but I think that’s ok for Google anyway. 

I submitted the sitemap on 2.5 weeks ago. Still my images haven’t been indexed. 

I tried Google Search Console but I can’t find any tool that would be useful. The URL inspection tool is apparently not intended for images (URLs with .jpg etc on the end).

Is there anywhere specific I can check if there’s any other blocks in place or to get some diagnostics on this?

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for your reply Steve.

I have checked Google Search Console sitemap section and there are no issues with the sitemap, however, the console does not show details about any images.

I have found multiple image URLS under the Coverage report for the following:

Soft 404 – Jun 14, 2018

Crawl anomaly – May 9, 2018

I have checked the Google Webmasters community posts and all the answers state that the URL inspection tool is unreliable for image urls (ending with .jpg etc). 

I am concerned that maybe I added code to exclude images from search results (there’s nothing in robtots.txt), or that I have stuffed up in some other way. Do you offer a personalized service to take a look at this closer? There’s just so many variables.
