Sitemap link errors

#77768
  • Hey,

    I don’t know if it directly has something to do with Rankmath but I don’t know where else to turn as you generate the sitemaps. Google search console shows errors in the sitemap:
    This is not a valid URL. Please correct it and resubmit.
    Examples
    URL:
    http://off||||
    Line 3936
    Parent tag:
    image
    Tag:
    loc
    URL:
    http://off||||
    Line 3940
    Parent tag:
    image
    Tag:
    loc
    URL:
    http://off||||
    Line 3944
    Parent tag:
    image
    Tag:
    loc

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    I checked and validated your sitemap here: https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/validate-xml-sitemap.html and I couldn’t find any issues. Could you please share screenshots of the error as seen on your GSC. You can upload the screenshots to https://imgur.com and share the affected URL in the sensitive section.

    Looking forward to helping you. Thank you.

    Hello,

    I think we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WP 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:

    https://wordpress.org/plugins/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):

    We really look forward to helping you.

    Hello,

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

    Thank you.

    Hi,

    I am sorry but you should have mentioned that it is a NSFW website.

    We have seen this type of issue before and it happens when you are using the Blurp feature in Divi and use a BG image in the blurp.

    We recommend that you contact Divi team and ask them if they have a solution for this where these BG images of blurps are not included in the sitemap. The functionality of Rank Math being able to see Divi images and adding them to the sitemap was added by the Divi team and that is why it is recommended that you contact them directly.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.

    Elegant Themes told me this:
    It must be something else, because I just tested that plugin with a Blurb which has a background image and the sitemap is detecting it:

    So if the results is not the same on your website, some other 3rd parties might be influencing that, but from Divi’s point of view, the background image of the Blurb module is detected by the plugin’s sitemap.

    I suggest you to get in touch with Google or Rank Math and show them my above screenshots with the results.

    I can forward you the email if you want to see the screenshots. Do you have any other idea what could help me?

    Hello,

    Please forward that to support@rankmath.com
