When I tried to index & URL TEST ‘sitemap.xml’ and ‘sitemap_index.xml’ to GSC, the result was ‘x-robot-tag : no index.’ And it doesn’t index.
When I inquired Ticket about this
[[[ that is normal as you should not inspect the sitemap URLs (/sitemap_index.xml and /sitemap.xml) as those are only used for crawling. ]]]
That’s what I got from support ticket before.
However, deactivate the RankMath plug-in in WordPress, I can make crawl and pass URL TEST both ‘/sitemap_index.xml and /sitemap.xml’ in Google search console.
However, if I do active the RankMath plug-in, URL test cannot pass and cannot be indexed.
What’s the problem?
Is the RankMath plug-in disturbing the index?
