Site Map Error In Search Console

  • Hi,
    I lately getting lots of sitemap crawling errors on the search console. It happens and clears off when I switch on “Include Empty Terms” on categories and tags. Can you try look into that? It has happened the 3rd time now in a span of 1 month.

    Thank you

  • Hello,

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

    Which crawling errors are you facing? Could you share a screenshot (you can upload it to https://ibb.co/ and share the image URL in the Sensitive Data section)?

    Also, are you using a cache plugin? If yes, remember you need to exclude your sitemaps from caching.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    I already switched the “Include Empty Terms” on and it was solved then I a thought to contact you came to my mind. Mybe I will do it next time when it gives another error.

    It was a 404 sitemap not available error when I inspected the sitemap URL.

    How do I exclude it from the cache?

    Hello,

    To exclude from caching you should find the URL exclusion option on your caching plugin then add all your sitemap URLs, including your post, page and taxonomy sitemaps.

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

    Great!

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    I told you, it won’t take long before the error pops up again. I am now forced to “Include Empty Terms” in the categories and terms setting which often solves the problems.
    Have a look at it and let me know what the issue might be before I toggle the setting on.

    Thank you

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    Did you clear you site cache and exclude your sitemap from being cached? Could you please resave your permalink settings then save your sitemap settings again and check if the issue persists.

    Did you submit only your main sitemap (sitemap_index.xml)? If not please do.

    If the issue still persists we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please 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:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/temporary-login-without-password/

    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):

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-security-audit-log/

    We really look forward to helping you.

    I followed your instructions and it worked again. Let me wait for a few more days and see if it comes again. The error comes like every 5 days!If you still want to check it, I can get you a temporary login.

    Thank you

    Hello,

    Since you did all that my colleague said, let’s wait a few days and if it happens again, just share the temporary link so we can check it.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Hi,

    The Issue came back again. I removed all the sitemaps from the cache but still got an error. I also save the post URL on the settings sections and rank math too.

    Have a look at the error. Thank you.

    Hello,

    You don’t seem to have added your sitemaps correctly to be excluded from your caching plugin. I did this by adding /.*sitemap*. under Performance > Page cache > Never Cache these pages(advanced section).

    That should fix your issue. Thank you.

    Okay. Thank you. Let me see if the issue comes back within a week
