  • 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 URL in the Sensitive Data section so we can check it? Also, keep in mind Rank Math generates a sitemap called sitemap_index.xml and not one called sitemap.xml.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    But rank math doesn’t create sitemap for my posts automatically. Every time i need to refresh the page. Why this happnin? When i upload any new post it doesn’t show in sitemap. When i refresh the sitemap page only then it shows new post sitemap. This happen everytime when i publish new post.
    My sitemap is also not get updated in Google search console automatically.
    Before using rank math plugin, i use Google sitemap plugin which creates sitemap properly and automatically update my sitemap also without refreshing any page.
    But When i use rank math sitemap i need to refresh my sitemap page for any new posts.
    Plesae solve this problem.


    Could you please check the following:
    1. Is the sitemap working fine in your browser? You can check that by going domain(.)com/sitemap_index.xml

    If the sitemap is working fine, you can try validating it on this link: https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/validate-xml-sitemap.html

    If the validation works, please move to the second point.

    2. Have you verified the correct version of your website on Google? Please check if you have verified the www (or non-www) and https (or http) version of your website. If there is a mismatch, please fix that.

    3. Finally, make sure you have cleared the cache and excluded Google bot from seeing a cached version of your sitemap.

    If you have followed these and you are able to view your sitemap without any problem, then Rank Math is outputting your sitemap correctly and the error must be coming from Google. You can try and use a 3rd party sitemap plugin to confirm. Just make sure you have disabled the Sitemap module of Rank Math in WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard when using a 3rd party sitemap plugin.

    If the other plugin works, please do let us know.

    With that said, let us know which URL is not included in the sitemap so we can check.

    Also, make sure to exclude sitemap URLs from your cache plugins.

    Thank you.

    No it didn’t work. As per your recommendation i installed third party plugin for generating sitemap by disabling your rank math sitemap and that third party plugin works properly.
    After sometime i uninstall that sitemap and again enable rank math sitemap option but still rank math didn’t create sitemap for my new posts as other sitemap plugin properly works.
    What can i do now?
    Please solve this problem? or
    Can i use other third party plugin for generating sitemap?
    Please reply?


    The temporary access provided doesn’t seem to work for me.

    I checked your sitemap and the posts sitemap seems to be updated on 16th, check the screenshot in the sensitive section.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    No sir. It will get updated only when i refresh my page. If you don’t belive just any demo post in my site and check it will not get update automatically. New post sitemap shows only when i refresh my page. And my sitemap is also not automatically get updated in Google search console. How ever, google sitemap plugin properly creates sitemap and also automatically update it google search console. I don’t use any third party plugin for sitemap but still rank math doesn’t create sitemap automatically. Please help.
    Rank math team take too much time to reply. Please solve query as early as possible.


    I tried to create a new post and published it. After that, I just loaded the sitemap and immediately the new post show there. Could you check it?

    I attached a screencast in the Sensitive Data section.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Why i need to refresh my sitemap page every timr. Also that sitemap is not get updated in Google Search console. Every time i need to delete the sitemap and need to resubmit it. Why this happenin?
    If rank math sitemap doesn’t work properly then can i use other sitemap plugin?
    Is it Ok?

    Hello rank math team, please solve my problem. Rank math sitemap page also not found in my site. Plese solve this issue.
    I gave you temporary access to my site.
    Please solve this error.

    Hello Omkar,

    I can’t replicate the issue either. To help us understan,please record a screencast with https://www.loom.com and share the URL in the sensitive section.

    If you wish to use a different sitemap plugin, please ensure to disable Rank math sitemap module in Rank math dashboard to avoid related conflicts.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    My problem is sitemap of my latest posts is not automatically get created by rank math.

    Everytime i need to refresh page. Also when i go to submit it in search console it will not get updated.

    I need to delete my sitemap and need to resubmit it only then it shows my latest sitemap of my posts in search console.

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

    Thank you.


    Please check the screencast I created for you.

    It shows that a test post I created was included in the sitemap instantly.

    The reason you might not be seeing that is because of the Sitemap cache in your browser. To counter that, do a hard refresh to check:
    Windows: Ctrl + F5
    Mac/Apple: Apple + R or command + R
    Linux: F5

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

    Sir that’s what i wanted to explain you. When i published new post it will not get updated in Sitemap. I need refresh it then sitemap get updated. But my sitemap is not automatically update in search console. I need to delete rank math sitemap and need to resubmit it. Then it shows my new post sitemap.
    Instead of rank math sitemap, other third party plugin sitemap work properly and also get updated in search console also.
    So can i use such third sitemap plugin? By disabling rank math sitemap.
    As such sitemap plugin work properly.
    Hope you reply quickly and my issue.
    Rank math team don’t reply quickly and the problem was more than 5-6 days but still you don’t solved my problem.
    Very disappoint with rank math.


    If your sitemap is being updated in Rank Math generated sitemap but Google Search Console takes a little to crawl it, there is nothing we can do since it is up to Google to increase or decrease the crawl rate. Just keep in mind new sites usually have a slow crawl rate so you don’t need to remove and add again the sitemap, just wait a little more. Eventually, once you have a site with more age, Google will increase the crawling frequency.

    Looking forward to help you.

    But other sitemap plugin works properly. Google xml sitemap is automatically get updated in search console.
    can i use third party by disabling rank math sitemap by keeping other SEO features?
