Sitemap not updating

Viewing 3 replies - 1 through 3 (of 3 total)
  • Hello,

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

    Your sitemap seems updated from my end with 38 URLs, here is a screenshot:

    To make sure your sitemap is constantly updated, please add exclusion rules to exclude all your sitemap URLs from being cached then 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. You can test your sitemap in a private browser to avoid browser caching and let us know.

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

    Thanks, yes, it seems to have been a cache issue. Where do I add the exclusion rules?


    The settings are usually different with different caching plugins. You can try checking your caching plugin documentation for where to exclude pages and/or URLs. This is where you should add all your sitemap URLs to be excluded from caching.

    If the caching is managed at server level, please share your sitemap URLs with your host and ask them to exclude them from caching.

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


    Since we did not hear back from you for 15 days, we are assuming that you found the solution. We are closing this support ticket.

    If you still need assistance or any other help, please feel free to open a new support ticket, and we will be more than happy to assist.

    Thank you.
