Sitemap error on GSC

  • Hi RankMath,

    When I add a sitemap to the Google Search Console, I get an error and the sitemap is flagged in red.

    It happen when I choose to set “Featured images in the sitemaps” OFF. If I choose ON, the sitemap is accepted on the GSC.

    Is it possible to fix this problem because I don’t when set “Featured images in the sitemaps” ON.

  • Hello,

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

    Do you have more information about the issue you face when submitting the sitemap URL to the Google Search Console?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    I don’t have more information.
    When I try to add a new website on the GSC and add the sitemap created by RankMath, I get an error “Impossible to read the sitemap”.

    I inspected the sitemap URL with the GSC tool and it appear that the sitemap is “nofollow”.

    It happened several times and I solved the problem by selected ON for the “Featured images in the sitemaps”.

    It’s not a big problem as I can solve it easily but it could be more better if you fix it.
