Sitemap includes deleted post

  • The post sitemap is showing a deleted post (hello-world). I have cleared cache, rebooted the server, restarted Apache and there are no caching plugins installed. Even tried in incognito mode.

    Additionally Google says the sitemap is html and reports a general HTTP error. I have followed the steps in your site with the various fixes. I have tried the purging caching, re-saving the permalinks,…. I have checked the sitemap in several browsers and they all appear to produce proper XML.

  • Hello,

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

    It looks like the “hello world” post was not deleted on your site but was just renamed with a new title “Best Baby Monitors” as shown below:
    Please edit the permalink and enter the new post URL to fix this.

    In regards to the second issue, your host is caching the sitemap file. Please get in touch with your host so that they can help in bypassing this file.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
