Video sitemap not generating videos
« on: December 03, 2021, 11:52:49 AM »
Hi,

My sitemap is not detecting videos. They are manualy uploaded (.mp4) and have VideoObject scripts added. Tested and valid by Google search console.

Hello,

itemListElement markup is not currently supported, please try the "standard" embed code as in the first example on:

Hi Oleg,

Thanks for the quick reply.

This works, but only the home page video is detected. I also notice that the regular sitemap (sitemap.xml) doesn't detect the posts either.

Regards
Predrag

Hello,

there is a rel=nofllow attribute on links pointing to blog posts, blocking crawling:
Code: [Select]
<a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.yourdomain.co/best-crypto-exchange/what-is-the-best-crypto-to-day-trade/"...
