Product category not in sitemap

  • Hello,

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

    Could you share your website in the Sensitive Data section so we can check it?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



    I have updated the sensitive data as requested. Can you please check further?

    Thank you.


    You seem to have modified your product category canonical from https:/**/kategori/bandager/kinesiotape/ to https://**/kategori/kinesiotape/. Rank math understands pages/posts with user-defined canonical as duplicate pages and therefore they are not added to the sitemap. You will need to remove the custom canonical to have your page added to the sitemap.

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    How do I change this back?


    You can change the canonical of a specific product as I show you in the following screencast:

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hi Alberto

    We are talking about a category site 🙂

    For some reason I’m being told that the site, mentioned in the Sensitive Data is not included within the sitemap due to URL changes. I assume this is a Rank math setting?


    The process shown in the screencast is the same even for categories.

    Just head to your category page and click on edit then remove the custom canonical URL in Rank math metabox under the advanced tab. If you are not certain, we can change it for you. Edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    We really look forward to helping you.

    There is no changes within the advanced tab?

    Can the setting before somewhere/something else?


    Please share your WP access as shown in my previous reply so we can dig further into this.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.



    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.
