I’m trying to get images, PDFs, infographics etc. from my site indexed as that is essential to my business model. Having read this article ( How to make images from webflow site appear in search engine - #5 by Bessie_Armitage ) I’ve added everything to my sitemap ( https://www.bipbapbop.com/sitemap.xml ). The code passed the audit from Validate XML Sitemap - XML Sitemaps Generator however when I submitted it to Google Search Console I got the message “Sitemap can be read, but has errors” with an error for every URL ending in .pdf, presumably as they are on a different root domain to my website.
- Are there any fixes for the issue with pdfs?
- Even though the images are recognized in the sitemap, what happens if someone links to them? I presume any juice is given to webflow and not to my website?
- Would these issues be fixed if external hosting providers were used?
