  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I do not think that you should be worried about this. The correct last modified time has been set on the individual URL links.
    Please add the following code to your theme’s functions.php file to disable caching:

     * Filter if XML sitemap transient cache is enabled.
     * @param boolean $unsigned Enable cache or not, defaults to true
    add_filter( 'rank_math/sitemap/enable_caching', '__return_false');

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.


    this will change my timezone to +5:30 ??

    Hi Himanshu,

    Thanks for the follow up.

    I have done more testing on this issue and it looks like there might be a bug affecting the timezone setting.
    This has been submitted to our dev team for closer investigation and we will be getting back to you in a short while.

    We appreciate your patience. Thank you.

    thanks .. you are great .. pls solve it .. !! 😊

    Hello Himanshu,

    I cannot view the Sitemap on your site, it’s showing me blank page:

    Can you please check that and add your site’s admin access in the Sensitive Data Section?

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    sry, this is because I have changed my site address its now
    pls see this and solve the issue .. i did this because I am not getting views and reducing everyday .. even I am updating posts regularly and doing SEO.
    and Pls also tell me, Is adding ‘www’ effects the views or not ??


    I don’t see any issue in the Sitemap. We are showing time in the UTC timezone and that’s how it should be.

    As far as site views are concerned, there are many factors which decides this. I would suggest you to first check in the Search console if any errors are reported there.

    Hope that helps. Thank you.

    timezone is not correct my timezone is +5:30 and it is showing +5:00.
    and pls can you check my s3arch console i have already given full access to Mr Davis, pls check it once.
    and pls tell me adding www before domain name wil effect my views or not ??

    Hi Himanshu,

    I have checked your property on the search console and this change is causing some coverage issues. There are a couple of redirection issues on your latest posts. You can see this when you head over to coverage after logging in to the search console.
    Please take a look at the recommendations suggested on this page to fix this through .htaccess file

    I hope this info helps. Thank you.
