Impossible to read Sitemap from GSC

  • Hi,
    When I check the Google Search Console, sitemap-index works correctly, while for all sitemaps (eg pages, articles) it tells me that they cannot be read. Furthermore the sitemap for a taxonomy I’ve created for a custom post type works fine as well. Any idea?

  • Hello,

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

    Can you please follow these steps?

    1. Please delete the sitemaps from the Google Search Console.

    2. Flush the Sitemap cache by following this video screencast:

    3. Clear all cache and exclude the Sitemap files of the Rank Math plugin in your caching plugin. The cache could be via a plugin or from the server. For plugins or Cloudflare, please follow this article:

    4. Add sitemap_index.xml file again to your Google Search Console.

    That should fix the issue. Please let me know if that does not. We are here to assist.

    Thanks that worked!
