Hi guys, I recently deleted some members from my siteΒ Β 

This has caused some issues on my google search console.Β 

Each one of the deleted members is "marked no index". Some other pages are showing in there too, maybe after deleting them.

Am I right to assume this sis something to do with the sitemap? If so, how can I fix this?Β 

Thanks in advance πŸ™‚Β

It takes time and Google and other search engines will remove these empty links themselves. Don't worry, it takes time. You do not need to go to the sitemap

@percysgrowroom,

Why you don't disable the user profile indexing? It'll be removed from sitemap as well, so next time google will not index profile pages. You can disable indexing of profile pages in Dashboard > Forums > Settings > Features Tab.
