Sitemap is generating 2 links that lead to 404.

  • Resolved Brent

    Hello, it seems rankmath is generating 4 sitemaps and two of them lead to 404. Can you tell me how to remove or correct the non functioning links?

  • Hello,

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

    Could you please do the following:

    1. Head over to WordPress Dashboard > Settings > Permalinks

    Hit the save button once.

    2. Go to WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings

    Hit the save button once.

    That should fix the issue.

    If it doesn’t, please do let us know so we can look at this further.

    Thank you this did fix this issue. Additionally though, is there anyway to get our page sitemap to also include the posts vs two separate links?

    Thank you

    Hi Brent,

    Thank you for the question.

    No this is not quite possible since sitemaps are created according to the post type and the two are classified under different post types.
    Please note that you only need to submit the sitemap_index.xml file to your search console and not individual sitemaps.

    I hope this info helps 🙂

    Sounds good, thank you.
