My forum topics is not showing on Google

I turned WordPress into wpforo, copied the forum sitemap and submitted it to google search console, I waited for days but my topics is still yet to be shown on Google

I installed "rankmaths instant indexing plugin" to index some topics, then went back to google search console after days to check if is been indexed but is not

I'm currently using yoast SEO

Only few topics shows on Google if I search with using my site domain 

For example site:vijiki.com

Here is my site url: https://www.vijiki.com

Hi @vijiki,

I see a few dozens of result in google. If one topic has already been indexed, then the forum is accessible for google, so there is no any issue with the forum. I checked all SEO tags and all works fine.

https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awww.vijiki.com

 

I'd also recommend you insert the forum sitmap to your Google Webmaster Tool sitemaps: https://www.vijiki.com/sitemap.xml

 

So all works fine, there is nothing to do from wpForo side.

 have over 70 topics but is not showing them, is only showing few topics which I forced indexed using "rankmaths instant indexing plugin"

Why can't I get indexation naturally from sitemap?

Even if paste those indexed link on Google search console it'll appear as not indexed

 

Lots of backlinks pointing to this domain but non is visible when searched

What could be wrong,

 

Here is a screenshot of Google search console

Thanks.

@vijiki ,

Again, there is no any issue from the forum side. All questions with "Why" should be referred to Google or to your WordPress configuration. All wpForo topics are accessible and all of them have correct SEO metadata.

I didn't get any response about the forum sitemap, please make sure it's put in your Google Webmaster Tools. Here is your forum sitemap: https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awww.vijiki.com put this URL in Google Webmaster Tool> Sitemaps section.

You can ask google to force indexing of certain pages in Google Webmaster Tool.

Yeah about the sitemap, I added it correctly to the webmaster

But some urls are having issues like "found but not indexed"

@vijiki,

All is correct, there are some pages with GET variables which should be excluded. The excluded ones are not topics.

Most ome of those search results showing on Google have been there before I installed Wpforo
