  • Hello,

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

    If you have any caching plugin, please exclude your sitemap URLs from caching and purge your site cache then do 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.

    You can test your sitemap in a private browser to avoid browser caching.

    If the issue persists, please do let us know so we can look at this further.

    Hi, still not working.

    Hello,

    The sitemap is now working fine from my end, please check the screencast I have added in the sensitive section. Could you please clear your browser cache or test this in a private/incognito browser.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Other post links are not fetched on the sitemap. Can you check?

    Hello,

    Could you please check your GSC if there are any errors reported and share a screenshot of the specified errors if any.

    Please note that it is completely upto Google if they want to index or not index your website. So, if you haven’t willingly or accidentally made your posts noindex and Google still isn’t indexing your page – it means that either Google doesn’t want to index or hasn’t crawled your page yet because it hasn’t allocated that much crawl budget to your website.

    Please check this website for more details.

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

    Alright, sitemap is working fine now and thank you for the assistance!
