Hi, why the opencart 1.5.6.4 does not generate image in opencart sitemap.xml? while other version of opencart +2.0 has image in xml sitemap. Please, how to add image on my opencart 1.5.6.4??

Also, both /sitemap.xml and /index.php?route=feed/google_sitemap works good, but after submiting sitemap.xml to google, nothing indexed, see attached picture, please help how to get my page indexed in google and add image in sitemap, thanks in advance!

sitemap.xml is just a redirect to /index.php?route=feed/google_sitemap (see your .htaccess file)

From the screenshot, I see no errors reported by Google, so it is just a matter of time for some or all of those pages to be indexed, if Googles deems them worthy of being indexed and you have not blocked them in robots.txt or the individual page META content.

Images were only added to the default OC sitemap in version 2.x(something), hence why they are missing in 1.5.x

thanks for reply, do you suggest to me to add image for my oc 1.5.6.4? or keep it without image. Which one is better? also, do you think if I download the sitemap.xml generate by opencart and upload it to my server is good then using the redirect in htaccess?
by the way, my robots.txt is

Code: Select all

user-agent: *
Disallow: /*&limit
Disallow: /*&sort
Disallow: /*?route=checkout/
Disallow: /*?route=account/
Disallow: /*?route=product/search
Disallow: /*?route=affiliate/
do you think it's good or need to allow everything to be indexed?

thanks in advance!

All you need to do is submit sitemap.xml to Google Webmaster Tools

If you want an images sitemap, you will need to add it or download one of the many sitemap extensions available in the marketplace.

already did that as you can see in image. but no page indexed is it because of mu robots.txt do you think my robots.txt is configured correctly? or I need to allow everything to index all page by google for example

Code: Select all

User-agent: *
Allow: /
what do you think? thanks for help

robots.txt file looks fine to me, nothing there that would block any standard product pages etc

Try resubmitting again. Then it's just a matter of waiting a week or so

thanks IP_CAM for your reply, I will try and let you know. is there a way to work with sitemap come with opencart without use extension? for example add image in my sitemap.xml because it's missing in version 1.5.6.4 but included in opencart 2.0.0.

thanks in advance!

Well, I am not yet familiar with this Google imagemap thing, but this extension
just seems to generate an 'actual' Listing of Product Image Links and Product Titles,
as it looks. And since this list is NOT beeing stored somewhere, I assume, that
it will be called by Google, when looking for such images.

Just to let you know :D
