Can’t generate Sitemap for Tags

  • I don’t know why I am not able to generate a site map for tags. I have already clicked “Included in Site Map” and “Include Empty items” for tags. However, the tags sitemap is still not listed under the “sitemap_index.xml”. My website also returns 404 when clicking on the link for the tags (index.php/post_tag-sitemap.xml).

    FYI, my site has over 80 posts and some of the tags are written in Chinese while some of them are in English.

    Much appreciated if anyone can share me any light.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Please check the following:

    1. Head over to Rank math > Titles & Meta > Tags and ensure you have not set to noindex

    2. Please head over to Posts > Tags and ensure you have not set your tags to noindex.

    If you have checked the above and the issue still exists, then we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    We really look forward to helping you.

    After wait for 1 day, I finally find the sitemap for tags. So now is all good in this one. Thanks! So does the site map refresh automatically or it will take a day to refresh?



    We are super happy that this resolved your issue. If you have any other questions in the future, know that we are here to help you.

    About your question, sitemaps refresh automatically using your site cron jobs. If they run with a slow frequency, it takes more to refresh.

    If you don’t mind me asking, could you please leave us a review (if you haven’t already) on about your overall experience with Rank Math? We appreciate your time and patience.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
