WooCommerce products sitemap link not opening

  • Hey, Rankers!

    My WooCommerce products sitemap link not opening, as a result, submitting the link to GSC resulted in couldn’t fetch sitemap. However, all my pages and product categories have all been indexed. That took a few hours. Just that I’m having issues getting my products to work.

    Your biggest fan,

  • Hi Banjo,

    Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    You can split your product sitemap into multiple parts to avoid these type of issues.

    You can do that from WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings > Products.

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

    your feedback solves no problem 🙁 WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings > Products.

    that’s the same route i took and the product sitemap link is not opening.

    Hello,

    Did you change the limit of the items per sitemap?

    You can change that from the default 200 to anything you like at
    WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Sitemap Settings > Global.

    Then, your product sitemap will be split into smaller sitemaps like
    product-sitemap1.xml
    product-sitemap2.xml

    Etc.

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

    THAT MAKES A LOT OF SENSE!

    Hi there,

    I can see that you have now been able to split the product sitemap into sub sitemaps of 1000 links and all the sitemaps are working as expected.

    Please let us know if there are any problems with fetching on the search console.

    Thank you.

    Yes, I am not sure if the products have been indexed in the GSC yet. However, it’s in the coverage with error status 🙁

    We encountered an error while trying to access your Sitemap. Please ensure your Sitemap follows our guidelines and can be accessed at the location you provided and then resubmit.

    Hi,

    Thanks for getting in touch.

    Could you 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 Rank Math is outputting your sitemap correctly and the error must be coming from Google. You can try and use a 3rd party sitemap plugin to confirm. Just make sure you have disabled the Sitemap module of Rank Math in WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard when using a 3rd party sitemap plugin.

    If the other plugin works, please do let us know.

    Thank you.
