    Hello,

    I submitted my sitemap in Google Webmaster tools, tested it, fetched it, did all those type of things and only 1 URL out of 67 submitted is being indexed. Is this normal or have I done something wrong?

    Thanks

    Hi

    The site is 5 years old. I have recently refreshed it, moving from a Dreamweaver design to a wordpress theme and have used the All in One SEO plugin to build the sitemap and robots.txt. I waited a day from fetching to checking. The 67 urls are not all pages, in fact the site only has 14 pages, the other urls are made up of pictures and attachments. Is it better to remove those from the sitemap or shouldn't it matter?

    Do you want visitors on pics and attachment pages?

    Not particularly. I've just looked at All in One SEO again and unclicked all boxes apart from "pages" and that has reduced the sitemap down to just the 14 pages now.
