i installed the rankmath plugin 3 days ago (its my first seo plugin). i am unable to submit sitemap in google search console. it shows couldn’t fetch error. i tried using url inspection tool and the page fetch shows as “N/A” for https://arivintejalakam.com/sitemap_index.xml.
I verified my domain using DNS method 2 days ago (i don’t know weather it matters).But still to verify that i added https://arivintejalakm.com as another property using url prefix method. i tried adding /sitemap_index.xml to that but that also didn’t work.
I also tried url inspection tool on my homepage address then the page fetch shows as “crawl anomaly”. i posted this issue in many forms and i got the reply “may be it’s due to bad robots.txt”. Then i tryed checking my sites robots.txt (https://arivintejalakam.com/robots.txt) with google’s robots.txt tester (https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/robots-testing-tool?hl=en) . it shows robots.txt not found. but i can see the robots.txt at “see live robots.txt” in the same tool. More over i am unable to edit the robots.txt in rankmath. i have attached all the screenshots below, anyone please help
