Custom Sitemaps?

  • Hi,

    I just wondered what is the best way for us to customise the look of the auto-generated sitemap?

    We would really like to add our branding & logo to the header, plus remove the reference to RankMath, and make the colours fit with our site’s style.

    Perhaps this would be a good feature for your Pro version?

    Would certainly upgrade to Pro just for this feature alone!

  • Hello Takemura,

    Sorry to disappoint but that feature is unfortunately not available at this time.

    With that being said, there are existing feature requests, so I’ve added your vote to our internal suggestions lists. If your suggestions are something that we’re able to introduce, I’ll be sure to let you know.

    OK Todd, thanks for letting me know.

    I often use sitemaps on other sites, as I’m sure others do too, so with that in mind it’s important for me that the sitemap is human readable too, not just bots.

    And for that reason, especially as we will publicise the link on our website, it is important that it matches our brand.

    p.s. you’re giving away so much in your core product, so a brandable sitemap readable by humans and bots, is a feature I would be willing to pay for.


    XML Sitemaps are different than HTML sitemaps. I think you are confusing the two. XML sitemaps are only for bots. What value would a bunch of links provide to a user? We would love to change you for a feature like this but I don’t think this feature is very practical 🙂

    You might instead want to look at HTML sitemaps that give some sort of structure to your website and make it easier for users to actually use the sitemap in the way you intend to use it.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    No, that is my whole point: make the sitemap readable to both bots AND humans.

    Sitemaps are useful ways for users to discover stuff.


    We are sorry but that feature is not available in Rank Math.

    We do not intend on changing the interface either. You can use an HTML sitemap for visitors. For bots, the XML doesn’t need to be styled and you can make it either for users or Google – we choose to make it better for Google which is what an SEO plugin is meant to do.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    OK. We will not be using your plugin anyway.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the reply.

    We completely understand and hope that you will consider using the plugin in a future project.

    Thank you.
