Error: Your server is not using expires header for your images.

  • Hello guys,

    I get a problem in the SEO Analysis: Your server is not using expires header for your images.

    Can you please check it? I have all the necessary plugins for that case.

  • Hello Daniel,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    If you check your website here:

    You will notice that there are certain files showing up in the non-cached section.

    You might want to fix those cache issues so Rank Math can detect them correctly.

    Hi Todd!
    I have the same problem.
    GTMETRIX Status: ok ok
    Rank Math: Your server is not using an expires header for your images.
    my website:
    Cache deleted and reloaded
    Thanks in advance:

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

    Could you please run the sitewide analysis once again after the cache is cleared and let us know how this goes?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    No changes. I have previously deleted the cace.


    We are so sorry about that.

    We have shared this with the dev. team and we will take a closer look at this.

    @ Todd: Still have also the same problem like Elfoto.

    So this is a real problem. I look forward to the update. The plugin is huge! I like that. I wish you a good job.

    Hello Daniel & Elfoto,

    I can see that the images on your sites have the expires header correctly set. The issue is most probably on our side, there seems to be a bug in this part of the SEO analysis – the Image Headers Expire test sometimes fails to detect the header when inline data URIs are used for the images, or if all the images are offloaded to a CDN.

    Our developers will look into this. Until then, please ignore this test in the SEO Analysis.

    Hope that helps. If you have any question, please feel free to ask.

    Hey Balazs,

    thanks for the answer and we as your customers are here to help you also to improve your plugin with our questions/problems 😉

    When I check by website, all results are ok.

    My website:

    Hi Tu Mai,
