Sitemap missing a category and 2 translation

  • Resolved Trembol
    Rank Math free

    Hi, i use RankMath sitemap in my site TREMBOL.COM
    I’ve never looked into the sitemap thinking that i would do it correctly, but today i noticed in Google Search Console, that some URL where not indexed.
    It’s just a few, these 3:

    I read somewhere that RankMath was not responsible for the translation version (in my case English “en”), but i ask you just in case.
    The first one is a Category (“canciones”) in my original language has the Meta Robot INDEX selected, but doesn’t appear in the sitemap:

    Any clue why and how to include it?
    And with the other two?

  • Hello,

    Thank you for contacting Rank Math today.

    Your URLs seem to be indexed by Google

    Could you please ensure you have not excluded the URLs from sitemap intentionally.

    You should also ensure none of the URLs defined explicitly in Rank math metabox under the Advanced Tab

    If none of the above is the issue, then 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:

    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.


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

    Thank you.


    We do not see any issues with your website.

    Moreover, if there was an issue then even manually submitting the indexing request would not get your website indexed.

    The manual request may speed up the indexing time but it does not get your pages indexed if there is an internal issue with it.

    So, the pages are indexable and working fine as far as Rank Math is concerned.

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


    That page is marked as noindex and that is why it is not showing up in the sitemap.

    Please make it indexable and then it will show up in the sitemaps.

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

    Dear Uzair,

    thanks, but in such case i don’t know how to change it because i have everything configured as INDEX
    Let me summarize you the pages that are not in the sitemap:

    – HomePage in English (second language translated with WPML):
    – Categories pages:
    – Categories pages in English:

    In this screenshot you can see my RankMath Categories configuration (the homepage is configured in the same way):!AmT5s81HarWGgvZW7ZI-Vh5WrVl_bg?e=qZacLb

    Here “” configuration:!AmT5s81HarWGgvZXg3PY5IZU3km5dQ?e=Pxhvbo

    And here the “tunes and canciones” categories configuration:!AmT5s81HarWGgvZbq6t8XN3zQDI0Pg?e=clKmDl

    All of them are configured as INDEX, same as all the other categories that are correctly added to the sitemap.

    That URL is a category without any post added and you had in Rank Math the following function enabled:

    So it was being set as no-index. I disabled it and as you can see in the page’s source code, it is now set as index.

    Looking forward to help you.

    Thanks Alberto, i didn’t realize that fact as both are categories with subcategories that aren’t empty, so i thought they would be considered as not empty, anyhow, as you said, changing that configuration, the sitemap index them.

    Then, the only mistery is about the english version of the homepage that is still not shown in the sitemap:

    Any clue why this could happen?

    I’ve built the homepage with a feature that DIVI EXTRA includes called CATEGORY BUILDER, that doesn’t include any RankMath configuration inside opposite to Posts and Pages that do include the RankMath configuration. By this, i mean, that i don’t really know what can i modify to make it appear in the sitemap.

    thanks again for your support!


    You can easily access your english version of sitemap by heading to : and if you go to the page sitemap you will find the english home page added in the sitemap:

    Hope that helps. If you have any further question(s), please let us know. Thank you.

    It does help, i didn’t know that an independant english sitemap was generated.
    Know i understand.
    Thanks for your help.
