  • Hello,

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

    I have checked and validated your sitemap and everything looks in order. Is it possible that your site could be serving a cached version of the sitemap file?

    Could you please purge your server cache & flush your the cache from the caching plugins and then resubmit the sitemap?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I have cleared all caches, including cloudflare and the xml site map on search console is showing success.

    Thank you
