What are the best permalink practices to help in SEO and as well as keeping the website maintenance friendly.
Just recently I installed the google site kit and added my sitemap to the Google Search console. Initially Google couldn’t read the map url as displayed by YoastSEO (it was displayed as https://xyz.in/index.php/sitemap_index.xml) but when I changed it to " https://xyz.in/sitemap_index.xml " it worked! I.e. I only had to remove the “index.php” part of the sitemap url and then Google could read the sitemap. I have a feeling that it has got something to do with my permalink settings but just wanted to check with you guys here before I go about playing with those. Current settings are “Custom”
Thanks for all the help by far guys! You are the best!
