  • Hello,

    Thank you for getting in touch with us.

    Before submitting, please check the following:
    1. Is the sitemap working fine in your browser? You can check that by going domain(.)com/sitemap_index.xml

    If the sitemap is working fine, you can try validating it on this link: https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/validate-xml-sitemap.html

    If the validation works, please move to the second point.

    2. Have you verified the correct version of your website on Google? Please check if you have verified the www (or non-www) and https (or http) version of your website. If there is a mismatch, please fix that.

    3. Finally, make sure you have cleared the cache and excluded Google bot from seeing a cached version of your sitemap.

    If you have followed these and you are able to view your sitemap without any problem, then head to your GSC and submit ONLY the main sitemap file: sitemap_index.xml.
    sitemap

    We recommend submitting only the main sitemap as other sitemaps are included within.

    Hoping this helps you. Thank you
