Postd_tag-sitemap issu

  • Resolved Raj

    Hello there, it seems that my post tag sitemap defaults to my main page. I don’t know if there is a redirect placed somewhere.
    on the google console; the erros message for post_tag-sitemap.xml is the following:
    “1 instance
    Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead.
    Line 1

  • Hello,

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

    If you have enabled automatic redirection of 404 pages to your homepage then this would cause the error.

    ​​​​Could you please do the following:

    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 fix the issue.

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

    hello there, i tried your suggestions; and there was a 404 redirect to the main page.
    i fixed that; BUT, google still can’t find the post_tag-sitemap
    i get the same error message as above.


    Hi Raj,

    If your tags are set to noindex, the sitemap will not show up.

    You can check from WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Titles & Meta > Tags.

    Let us know.

    the issue was resolved. I had to do a reinstall; and, this time it worked.
