Multiple Sitemaps (2 erroneous ones)

  • I opened my rankmath sitemap for my website, and i noticed three sitemaps. One of them is the correct sitemap for my website, however 2 of them were dated 2 years before i opened my website. These sitemaps don’t belong to me, as I didn’t own my website in 2016. I am getting an error on my wordpress dashboard which tells me that i have multiple sitemaps. How do i delete these 2 erroneous sitemaps?

  • Hi Joseph,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    Can you please share the file names too?

    1. Disable all other SEO or sitemap plugins on your website
    2. Logon to the root of your website using FTP and delete any sitemap files you see in there.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
