I am using Google XML Sitemap plugin for my WordPress website.
I have the option to submit only posts, only categories, or both which update weekly, daily, or monthly. Which combination is healthier for a news website? From personal experience, I use only categories, but I don't know if I'm on the right track?
When I do so and check out Google Search Console I see for I included 40 categories in the sitemap but only 12 are indexed by Google. What does this really mean?
