  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math and bringing your concern to our attention. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this issue may have caused you.

    I’ve checked your site, and it seems that your domain is working with and without the www
    Canonical Duplicated GSC

    You can also use this tool to check:

    In this case, please verify and submit only one version of your website, either with or without www, to avoid duplication errors in GSC.

    I hope that helps. Thank you, and looking forward to your update.

    Ah ok. Not sure why that is happening I’ll try change that.

    Thank you


    Let us know how it goes. We will keep this ticket open until your issue is resolved.

    Looking forward to helping you.

    It appeared to be an ‘Under Construction” plugin that was causing the duplication of the non www and www version. This has been deactivated and httpstatus is showing
    What is the best way to get google to re-crrawl and start recognising the content?


    I am glad that your issue is resolved.

    You can submit the URL in Google Webmaster Tool and wait for Google to crawl your site.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    There were over 300 pages that incorrectly returning errors do resubmit them indidually or perhaps resubmit the whole sitemap again?


    Thank you for following up.

    In this case, you will need to remove the sitemap/s you have submitted and only submit your main sitemap. Google will then recrawl your other sitemaps as well.

    To avoid issues with sitemap caching, you can follow the steps below on how to flush and exclude your sitemap from caching before resubmitting:

    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.

    3. Exclude your sitemap from your caching plugin:

    I hope that helps. Thank you, and please don’t hesitate to contact us if you need further assistance.


    Just an addition to this, check some of the affected pages with the URL inspection tool and if all seems okay, then you can ask Google to recrawl your URLs:

    Hope this helps you

    seems to be working just waiting for google to fully recrawl


    Glad that helped.

    Please feel free to reach out to us again in case you need any other assistance.

    We are here to help.

    Thank you.
