Empty Sitemap Google Search Console

  • Hi, i have submitted several times the sitemap page on Google Search Console and it always shows 1 error: Empty Sitemap

    Whole error text:

    “Sitemap can be read, but has errors
    Empty Sitemap
    1 instance
    Your Sitemap does not contain any URLs. Please validate and resubmit your Sitemap.”

    And it does contain URLs, 29 to be exact. I have followed the solutions you give in other users’ tickets, upgrading permalinks, and sitemap settings in Rank Math and it does not work

    any other solution?

  • Hello I have the same problem !


    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Could you please check the following:
    1. Is the sitemap working fine in your browser? You can check that by going domain(.)com/sitemap_index.xml

    If the sitemap is working fine, you can try validating it on this link: https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/validate-xml-sitemap.html

    If the validation works, please move to the second point.

    2. Have you verified the correct version of your website on Google? Please check if you have verified the www (or non-www) and https (or http) version of your website. If there is a mismatch, please fix that.

    3. Finally, make sure you have cleared the cache and excluded Google bot from seeing a cached version of your sitemap.

    You can use our filter to disable the cache: https://rankmath.com/kb/filters-hooks-api-developer/#enable-disable-sitemap-cache
