  • Hello,

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

    The issue with your sites and Yandex bot is not anything to do with the robots.txt file. It seems to be that your sitemap files returns a 403 forbidden status code when Yandex bot tries to access them.

    It might be some rewrite rules on your htaccess file or on your server. You can check with your host to check if they may have something blocking Yandex from accessing sitemap file.

    If not, we might need to take a closer look at the settings. Please edit the first post on this ticket and include your WordPress 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.
