    Hello,

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

    Your sitemap is reporting 1 warning and 2 errors, would you mind logging in to your search console dashboard and checking the kind of coverage errors that are reported?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Within the sitemap – mphb_room_type-sitemap.xml
    Getting this error –

    General HTTP error
    We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.
    Examples
    HTTP Error:
    404

    How to go about it?

    Asked about it on google webmaster forum and got this reply –

    That means the sitemap URL within the “overall” sitemap returned a 404 at the time when Google crawled. It seems to exist now, so I would just ignore it. Search Console presents mostly historic data, not live data, so things it flags are sometimes out of date.

    Sitemaps aren’t necessary for Google to crawl your site (though they make it easier) and mistakes in sitemaps have no effect on your ranking. So if your real concern is your ranking issue, you’ll need to look elsewhere; it won’t have been caused by this.

    The error is for accommodation type sitemap and warnings are for product sitemap. I have turned both accommodation and product off in settings but I still see them in sitemap. How to remove it from sitemap?

    Hello,

    Thanks for getting back to us.

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

    You can refresh the entries on your sitemap by doing the following:

    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.

    That should fix the issue.

    If it doesn’t, please do let us know so we can look at this further.

    Done that, still showing the same

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the response.

    This is related to your page caching plugins.
    I have flushed the cache and the entries have now been removed.

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.

    It is still showing as part of sitemaps. With error

    Hi there

    This is how it looks on my end:
    Sitemap file

    Please clear your browser cache as well.

    Hi, its done. Thnaks a lot for help.
    There is another issue now. When i do URL inspection in google webmaster tools, i get following error –
    Linked AMP version is valid with warnings
    It is eligible for some AMP-specific features in Google Search results, but is not fully compliant with AMP best practices

    Also, when i analyse site with ubersuggest.com, getting following error –
    1 issueswith no sitemap.xml to optimize interaction with bots

    Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I cannot replicate any AMP errors on the homepage, did you test a specific page? This is how this looks on my end:
    Amp test

    When I test the structured data, there’s no error as well:
    Schema
    This could be related to your caching plugin.

    Also, when i analyse site with ubersuggest.com, getting following error –
    1 issueswith no sitemap.xml to optimize interaction with bots

    This tool is only checking for sitemap.xml but Rank Math does not use this file, it uses sitemap_index.xml

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
