Sitemap indexing error

  • Hello,

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

    Your sitemap settings appear to fine and valid. Could you please attempt resubmitting your sitemap and check if this fixes your issue.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    Deleting the sitemap and submitting it again does not change.
    It is the same if I delete the property of my site and register again.

    To prevent sitemap caching in the cache plugin, I also entered the path below.


    Could you please check the following:

    1. Try validating it on this link:

    If the validation works, please move to the second point.

    2. 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.

    If you have followed these and you are able to view your sitemap without any problem, then Rank Math is outputting your sitemap correctly and the error must be coming from Google. You can try and use a 3rd party sitemap plugin to confirm. Just make sure you have disabled the Sitemap module of Rank Math in WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard when using a 3rd party sitemap plugin.

    If the other plugin works, please do let us know.

    Thank you.

    Sitemaps work normally even when using third-party plugins. However, the sitemap is not detected when submitted to GSC.

    It detects normally, but the read result is empty.


    If the issue happens even with third party sitemaps then thee is an issue with your site verification in GSC. Please create a new Google Account and verify your site there then submit your sitemap and let us know how it goes.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    After creating a new account, deleting all site properties from the existing account, registering the site in the new account and submitting the sitemap also causes the same symptoms. Is there a problem with the server?
