Sitemap could not be read

Viewing 7 replies - 1 through 7 (of 7 total)
  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math, and sorry for any inconvenience caused.

    It looks like you are serving a cached version of your sitemap to Google and your visitors.

    You must add all the sitemap file locations to the exclusion list in your Cache plugin so that the sitemaps are never cached.
    See more on this here:

    This is required since Sitemaps are already cached internally by Rank Math and we flush them every time you post something new and with our cache – you won’t see the issue you are seeing in Google.

    After excluding your sitemap URLs and purging your cache, you can remove and resubmit your main sitemap only on GSC.

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

    This is how I realized:
    I need to remove WordPress cache and plugins
    And prevent caching
    Map site again
    Am I right ?!
    ( sorry my eng is bad 🙂 )


    No, you do not have to remove the caching plugin.

    You just have to exclude your sitemap from being cached.

    Please refer to this detailed guide:

    I hope this helps. Please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.


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

    Thank you.
    Again, the problem was not solved


    Thank you for following up.

    I’ve checked your sitemap, and it seems that you haven’t yet verified the correct version of your website www (or non-www) and https (or http) in Google. Please refer to the screenshot in the designated Sensitive Data section.

    Please ensure that only 1 version of your sitemap is working, and the rest are redirecting to it.

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



    We are super happy that your issue is resolved. If you have any other questions in the future, know that we are here to help you.

    If you don’t mind me asking, could you please leave us a review (if you haven’t already) on about your overall experience with Rank Math? We appreciate your time and patience.

    If you do have another question in the future, please feel free to create a new forum topic, and it will be our pleasure to assist you again.

    Thank you.
