  • Hi Anoop,

    We have already replied to both those tickets. If anything was not working in them, you should just reply and say so.

    Please note that Rank Math is just a tool. It does what you ask it to. If your 404s are redirected, that is because you have chosen to do that.

    Please go to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > General Settings > Redirections.

    Make sure the fallback option is setup as per your setting. If you want 404s to be shown as a 404, just choose “Default 404”

    If you have another sitemap plugin, you should disable that to avoid having more than one sitemap indexes on your website.

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

    I do understand this is a tool and it doesn’t have any magic of AI πŸ™‚ Well AI is not magic it’s just a trained algorithm πŸ˜€

    I don’t use any other plugin for SEO.
    What could be the impact of setting this as β€œDefault 404” pls?
    And also, 404 is bad from SEO perspective?

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Setting this option to default 404 will allow the 404s to be detected and logged in the plugin. Search engines will also be able to detect the errors.
    You can however redirect each of your 404s individually using the redirections module.

    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.
