Sitemap Index issue on GSC

  • I have submitted my sitemap into Google a few months back, but I have only realized that the full sitemap has not been indexed.

    When I am checking the sitemap, a lot of the sitemap is empty, hence an error was shown on Google that they cannot process the sitemap. Alot of the pages are set at noindex, but my setting on the site is set to index.

  • Hello,

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

    Have you verified the correct version of your website on Google? Please check if you have verified the www (or non-www) and https (or http) version of your website. If there is a mismatch, please fix that.

    You should also make sure you have cleared the cache and excluded Google bot from seeing a cached version of your sitemap.

    You can use our filter to disable the cache: https://rankmath.com/kb/filters-hooks-api-developer/#enable-disable-sitemap-cache

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Yes, it is verified as a domain property. If you check on each version of the sitemap from pages and listing, there’s alot of empty lines with “/” only. I thin k Search Console is referring to these lines.

    Hi Desmond,

    Thanks for getting back to us.

    The Health check & troubleshooting plugin does not seem to work but this seems to be a conflict between the listing plugin and Rank Math since the Google XML sitemaps plugin seems to work as expected.

    We are currently investigating this further and we will get back to you in a short while.

    We appreciate your patience. Thank you.

    Ok, thank you for checking

    Hello,

    I am trying to reproduce this issue on my setup but I couldn’t. Can you add your site’s FTP details in the Sensitive Data Section so we could check the issue by editing some files?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Hello,

    I am getting write permission denied error when I try to upload the files through FTP. Can you please check and remove all the limitations?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Pratik,

    I’m not sure how to change the permission for that. Did you see any other error, or if it’s my security plugin that is blocking you?

    Hi Desmond,

    Thanks for getting back to us.

    I can suggest that you get in touch with your host about this so that they can fix the permission issue so that we can help further.

    Thank you.
