Error in Sitemap (#)

  • Resolved Emilio

    I have looked for this error in the forum and I haven’t found it.
    In my sitemap 3 invalid urls appear with this format:
    <image: image>
    <image: loc> # </ image: loc>
    </ image: image>
    <image: image>
    <image: loc> # </ image: loc>
    </ image: image>
    <image: image>
    <image: loc> # </ image: loc>
    </ image: image>

    What I can do? I have cleared the cache and looked for broken links to images on the page (but there is none)
    Thank you

  • Hello,

    I have checked your linked sitemap but it doesn’t seem to have more than just your homepage. Could you give us more details (or even better, use https://www.loom.com/ to record a screencast showing us where is the issue)?

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hello,

    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    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:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/temporary-login-without-password/

    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.

    Hello,

    I have just checked it and it seems the ‘#’ you see are for three images you have in your website that are taken from external websites (like gravatar) so since they are not from your domain, they are not added in the sitemap of your domain (which is logic) so it is not an issue and you should not worry about it.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hi!

    If you look at the image links I attached (from imgbb) Google Console Search reports the sitemap as “readable but with 3 errors”.

    I think that this may have a negative impact on positioning. It is right?

    Ty!
