    Sitemaps are built to the specification provided here: https://www.sitemaps.org/protocol.html

    As to why this file only has three links, that is by design as specified here: https://forum.vbulletin.com/forum/vb...63#post4455963

    Using Sitemap index files (to group multiple sitemap files)

    You can provide multiple Sitemap files, but each Sitemap file that you provide must have no more than 50,000 URLs and must be no larger than 50MB (52,428,800 bytes). If you would like, you may compress your Sitemap files using gzip to reduce your bandwidth requirement; however the sitemap file once uncompressed must be no larger than 50MB. If you want to list more than 50,000 URLs, you must create multiple Sitemap files.

    If you do provide multiple Sitemaps, you should then list each Sitemap file in a Sitemap index file. Sitemap index files may not list more than 50,000 Sitemaps and must be no larger than 50MB (52,428,800 bytes) and can be compressed. You can have more than one Sitemap index file. The XML format of a Sitemap index file is very similar to the XML format of a Sitemap file.
    It is up to the search provider to follow the same specifications.

          So the issue has resolved when I did a full domain verification.
          The partial URL level ones do a poor job when it come to accuracy.
          Now things are great!
