Are tabs and/or steps in a wizard displayed as separate boxes in a sitemap diagram?

I’m creating a sitemap for an enterprise application.

For one section in the application, there is an edit calendar feature. Once clicked on, there are three sections/or different types of calendars to set up.

  1. Start/end dates for the entire project
  2. Blocked-out dates (holidays and nonworking days, etc.)
  3. Start/end dates for specific tasks within the project

We currently use a step wizard to edit the calendar so the user has to set up the dates in that order.

In my sitemap, do I draw out each step as a separate box, or would that go in a separate user flow diagram?

Have custom post type posts show under regular posts in sitemap (Yoast)

I have a custom post type called FAQs, and I’m using Yoast SEO to generate a sitemap. The sitemap gets generated like it should, but it creates a completely separate sitemap for the FAQ post type, so That makes sense, but I’m wondering if there’s a way I could keep the custom post type of FAQ but have the FAQ posts show up under the instead, and then wouldn’t even exist anymore.

Here’s the code to create the custom post type.

function create_faq_post_type() { // Set UI labels for Custom Post Type $  labels = array(     'name'                => _x( 'FAQs', 'Post Type General Name' ),     'singular_name'       => _x( 'FAQ', 'Post Type Singular Name' ),     'menu_name'           => __( 'FAQs' ),     'parent_item_colon'   => __( 'Parent FAQ' ),     'all_items'           => __( 'All FAQs' ),     'view_item'           => __( 'View FAQ' ),     'add_new_item'        => __( 'Add New FAQ' ),     'add_new'             => __( 'Add New' ),     'edit_item'           => __( 'Edit FAQ' ),     'update_item'         => __( 'Update FAQ' ),     'search_items'        => __( 'Search FAQ' ),     'not_found'           => __( 'Not Found' ),     'not_found_in_trash'  => __( 'Not found in Trash' ) );  // Set other options for Custom Post Type $  args = array(     'label'               => __( 'faqs' ),     'description'         => __( 'frequently asked questions' ),     'labels'              => $  labels,     // Features this CPT supports in Post Editor     'supports'            => array( 'title', 'editor', 'thumbnail', 'author', 'comments', 'custom-fields' ),     'hierarchical'        => true,     'public'              => true,     'show_ui'             => true,     'show_in_menu'        => true,     'show_in_nav_menus'   => true,     'show_in_admin_bar'   => true,     'menu_position'       => 5,     'can_export'          => true,     'has_archive'         => true,     'exclude_from_search' => false,     'publicly_queryable'  => true,     'taxonomies'  => array( 'category', 'post_tag' ),     'rewrite' => array('slug' => '%category%') );  // Registering faq custom post type register_post_type( 'faq', $  args ); }  // Hooking up the faq custom post type function to theme setup add_action( 'init', 'create_faq_post_type', 0 ); 

Kind of a weird request, but that’s what the SEO is wanting to do unfortunately.

Google Search Console – Adding Domain/Subdomain and sitemap for each

I have a WP website and created a new subdomain with separate content and URL and I need to register both sites in Google Search Console now. The idea is that both sites are visible on Google and to be SEO optimized for different content they have. What is the best way to do this:

1) Add a new property type (Domain) of a (without http and www) and after that just to submit both sitemaps ( and

2) Add a new property type (URL Prefix) for both sites ( and and a separate XML file for both sites in the correct property where they belong.

3) Or some other way?


How do I update the sitemap in D7?

I want to exclude some pages from the sitemap.

I go to these pages/nodes, edit them, then go to the XML sitemap tab and set it to ‘Exclude’.

I then save and clear cache.

But when I look at my sitemap.xml file nothing is changed – the page URLs are still present.

How do I remove them?

Removed Sitemap, Search Console errors still there

I recently removed an old sitemap from Search Console because it was full of duplicates and pages that no longer exist – and we already have a new, more up to date sitemap. However when I look at coverage errors in Search Console I’m still seeing all the errors that were caused by the old sitemap. A lot of these are 404s for pages that no longer exist and therefore should not be crawled.

I now know that Search Console doesn’t forget about these errors just because the old sitemap is gone, but how am I supposed to resolve these errors? Will Google keep crawling these error pages even without the old sitemap? And how am I supposed to stop it from crawling 404 pages – it’s not like I can NoIndex or 301 Redirect a page that doesn’t exist!
Help would be greatly appreciated.


Sitemap Confusion on Google Console – One website accessible by two URL’s

Help please. I am a novice when it comes to websites, the language and technical side. Excuse if this sounds elementary.

If you have one website accessible by two URL’s (seen below), do I need to add a sitemap for each one? When I sign on to Google Console – I see both url’s and click between the two. Both lead to my new Shopify store but only one has the sitemap.

I recently got rid of my WordPress site and moved URL to Shopify through a secured network since it is now e-commerce – hence the https. Shopify Staff helped me set it up and told me where to paste the site map. I don’t know if they knew I had two url in Console or even if it matters. I just want to make sure I am set up in the best way for traffic and indexing.

I became confused when I looked at Google Console Performance for both and noticed the url with no site map is getting more traffic/performance than the one with the site map.

Below are the details…

This url below has the sitemap but I noticed less performance


The url below DOES NOT have a site map but more traffic- I got this secured network when I signed on when Shopify since it is e-commerce.


Which ever url you enter will take you to the same secured site. I just want to know if I should move the site map to ?

Or just leave well enough alone and be happy.

Also someone told me there are a few sites you can run your website and check the health of it. Recommendations for that also.

Thank you.
