  • Hello,

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

    It is completely normal for the sitemap file to be set to noindex since you do not want its contents to be indexed on search engines.
    Would you mind sharing a screen shot of the HTTP errors reported on the search console?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hi Josef,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    This error is quite odd. Could you please check your server logs for any errors that may shed some light on what is causing this?

    Please let us know how this goes. Thank you.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the response.

    We might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP and FTP logins in the designated Sensitive Data section.
    Sensitive Data Section

    It is completely secure and only our support staff has access to that section. If you want, you can use the below plugin to generate a temporary login URL to your website and share that with us instead:

    Temporary Login Without Password

    You can use the above plugin in conjunction with the WP Security Audit Log to monitor what changes our staff might make on your website (if any):

    WP Security Audit Log

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    If you are looking in to the dashboard of word press you can check, why i must self click the update button to update the datas from the search console.

    This is not automatic.

    Hi Josef,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I cannot find any issues with displaying the search console on the WP dashboard. The data displays as expected as shown below:
    IMG

    There are also no errors on your sitemap that could be causing the HTTP error. Please clear your site cache and resubmit your sitemap on the search console. You might also want to exclude your sitemap file from your caching rules.

    Let me know how this goes. Thank you.

    hello,

    that i have all made, nothing is solved.

    if i made with a other plugin the sitemap this sitemap have the header index and in the search console the sitemap was signed at ok, but this sitemap not.

    i have resubmitted the sitemap ever 2 days since one month and it´s always the same.

    Hi Josef,

    Thank you for the follow up.

    You have only excluded the default sitemap path that is used by most plugins ie http://www.domain.com/sitemap.xml from your caching rules. The one used by Rank Math is not excluded.

    I have done a test by installing Google XML sitemaps plugin and this is how the header response looks like for the sitemap created:
    IMG

    Here is the difference with the sitemap index from Rank Math:
    IMG

    Please get in touch with your host so that they can help in excluding the RM sitemap URL from your caching rules.

    We are looking forward to helping you. Thank you.
