  • I have the same issue. I thought it was cleared when I hit enter on permalink then saved setting in rankmath in the sitemap section. But I just waited for it to be reminded and still getting noindex from the sitemap.

    Additionally – the rich snippets are showing up for everyone at the bottom of all pages. I hid them on main pages – but you can see it here https://californiacaviar.com/newsletter/

    I cannot seem to get either issue to stop

    Any suggestions? Would reinstalling Rank Math plugin help?

    Hello,

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

    The three pages should be set to noindex by default because they should not be present on the SERP. It appears that Rank Math is incorrectly adding these pages to the sitemap and causing the error.
    Please edit each of them and ensure that they are set to noindex. Next, perform these steps:

    1. Head over to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks

    Hit the save button once.

    2. Go to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings

    Hit the save button once.

    That should remove these pages from the sitemap and fix this issue.

    If it doesn’t, please do let us know so we can look at this further.

    Hi Micheal,

    I have made the changes. Waiting to Google Console Results

    I asked Google Search Console to validate but I have not received email back from Google. Also when I try to index my website, not sitemaps are showing up on the result page. Is this normal?

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    No this is not normal. Could you please add me as a property owner on your search console and then 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):

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-security-audit-log/

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    I added you to my site as a property owner in Google Console

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I am sorry I forgot to share my email address, you can find this info on the sensitive data section. I have just realized that this statement was not very clear:

    When I try to index my website, not sitemaps are showing up on the result page.

    Are you trying to have your sitemap appear on the SERP or this problem affects the search console dashboard?

    Kindly also share your site URL as well.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    I am trying to get my website indexed on Google. I was thinking if the sitemaps are not showing up on the url inspection that could be a problem.

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Please create a new ticket for the new issue.
    In regards to the problem, there is no indexing problem on your site. All your submitted sitemaps have already been fetched but the process of indexing will take a while and you should give this upto a few weeks.
    I have also checked the index coverage tab and the only error reported affects a single page that has been set to noindex. You can fix this error by editing the product category https://domain.com/product-category/tasty-hemp-oil/tasty-hemp-oil-capsules/ and set the indexing options to “Index” on the advanced tab of the Rank Math metabox.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I have the same issue I applied every method that you suggest me in upper article but I am facing this issue now, please
    suggest me what should I do?

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Is your problem related to indexing of your pages or fetching of the sitemap?
    If it is latter, this has been isolated as a bug on Google’s end. Please read here
    https://support.google.com/webmasters/thread/3280971?hl=en

    It’s happening with other SEO plugins as well.

    The most prominent reason behind that seems to be the introduction of the Indexing API
    https://rankmath.com/blog/google-indexing-api/

    Google has plans to drop the use of Sitemaps and allow indexing API.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
