  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting the support, and sorry for any inconvenience that might have been caused due to that.

    Could you please remove your sitemaps on GSC and resubmit only the main sitemap sitemap_index.xml then allow some time for it to be crawled, this has been known to resolve the issue.

    Let us know how it goes. We are looking forward to helping you.

    I have only submitted sitemap_index.xml

    Still the same issue 🙁


    Thank you for keeping in touch with us.

    Upon checking your link, it seems that it was indexed but not visible to the sitemap.

    Can you please follow these steps?
    1. Flush the Sitemap cache by following this video screencast:

    2. 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:

    After doing so, submit your sitemap once again, give it time for Google to recrawl and see if the error goes away.

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


    Since we did not hear back from you for 15 days, we are assuming that you found the solution. We are closing this support ticket.

    If you still need assistance or any other help, please feel free to open a new support ticket, and we will be more than happy to assist.

    Thank you.
