    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, I'm afraid we won't be able to help you any further – it seems your sitemap is showing up correctly and there is no error in it. The "Last read" date and the "Pending" message suggest that this is a temporary issue and it will be resolved on the Search Console soon. Please note that sitemaps are not a critical part of indexing. A site can and will be indexed even without a sitemap. We recommend asking about the issue in Google's Product Forums: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!forum/Webmasters Hope that helps.
  2. Hello, Thanks for letting us know. We are glad that the issue has been resolved. If there's anything else, please feel free to open a new ticket. Thank you.
  3. Hello, I have accessed your site through FTP and made a small change in the plugin code so that the SEO Analysis module can now correctly detect the canonical link present on your pages. Hope that helps. If there's anything else, please let us know. Thank you.
  4. Hello, I have logged in to your site to check this issue, and it seems that the redirections in Rank Math are working correctly, for example it redirects: https://www.genuineonlinefreejobs.com/2015/04/top-10-genuine-paid-online-jobs-survey-panels.html To: https://www.genuineonlinefreejobs.com/paid-online-survey-jobs-sites-list-home/ Furthermore, when I try a URL that is not redirected by Rank Math, the same issue happens: http://www.genuineonlinefreejobs.com/aaaa It's the HTTP to HTTPS redirection that fails, it's not related to the redirections in Rank Math. What method are you using for that? There might be a mistake in the htaccess rule or something. Looking forward to helping you.
  5. Hello, I have checked your site and I can see that the canonical URL tag does in fact appear in the source code of all of the pages. So, the issue is only in how the Analysis feature tests your site, there is no actual SEO problem on your site. You can ignore that test for now. As we could not reproduce the issue on a test install, we would like to take a closer look at it on your site. Could you please provide FTP access to your site so we can try some changes in the plugin code? Thank you. Looking forward to helping you.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, Thank you for pointing out the URL issue in the test. Your site seems to load correctly now for me. The sitemap problem is still kind of a mystery though: all third-party tools show that your sitemap files are readable and do not contain any error. https://monosnap.com/direct/1bb4Ma0NYxcUHYFdmDPoAGEBcvAChC Furthermore, we did not encounter such issues on other user's sites, even though we passed 10,000 installations with Rank Math. I see on your screenshot that the last time Google tried to read your sitemap was 3 days ago, and perhaps the server issues were still happening at the time. Can you please try to submit your sitemap again and see if the "Last read" date gets updated? Please let us know the results. Thank you.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] homepage title problem

    Hello, I just tried logging in to your site, however, the username and password provided in the Sensitive Data field are not working. Could you please check and correct the access details? Also, please share the FTP access details as well, so we can try some changes in the plugin code. We don't necessarily need root access, you can also create an account with the plugin folder as home directory. Thank you. Looking forward to helping you.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, Thank you for letting us know, I'm glad the issue with CloudFlare has been sorted out. Is the sitemap issue still happening in the Search Console or is that also solved now? Looking forward to your response.
  9. Hello, If the robots.txt file is empty now, then it definitely cannot be blocking any of the URLs – for that it would need to contain a rule such as Disallow: *. The issue might be caused by some cache mechanism on Google's side. Please check the accessibility of one of the faulty URLs using the Search Console robots.txt Tester https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/robots-testing-tool At the top you should see a text box with your current robots.txt content (it should be empty at the moment), while at the bottom you will see a text input field where you can test if a specific URL is accessible or not. Try it with one of the URLs that was flagged as blocked, to see if it is still blocked or not, and to see which robots.txt rule is blocking it. Hope that helps.
  10. Hello, Thank you for adding the login details. This is a strange error because your robots.txt does not seem to be blocking any of the URLs present in the sitemaps. Nonetheless, I tried editing your robots.txt in Rank Math > General Settings > Edit robots.txt, but my changes are not being applied when I visit your /robots.txt file. Are you using any cache or CDN on your site that might be causing this? Please try the following: upload an empty robots.txt file in the root folder of your site. Then, when you visit /robots.txt on your site, you should see a blank file. Then please try submitting the sitemap again in the Search Console. Let us know how that helps. Thank you.
  11. Hello, Could you please add your WP login details a well in the Sensitive Data field so we can take a look at the plugin settings? Thank you. Looking forward to helping you.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, Thanks again for the screenshots. It seems that Google is simply unable to fetch the sitemap, i.e. the request fails when they are trying to download it. I just checked it and I was also unable to open your site: I'm getting "HTTP error 522" (this is probably the general HTTP error Google mentioned in the Search Console). I tried to load both your sitemap and your homepage on multiple occasions, and I keep getting this error. I added a screenshot of the error in the Sensitive Data field. Please ask your hosting provider about the issue. Thank you.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, From your screenshot it appears that you have submitted your sitemap for indexing in the search results. Normally that is not something you want to do: you don't want your sitemap_index.xml to appear in the search results. I have accessed your site again and added back the noindex header to prevent that from happening. Can you please tell us or show on a screenshot what you see in the Sitemaps tab in Search Console? That's where the sitemap is supposed to show up when it is submitted. Thank you. Looking forward to your response.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, Thank you for your cooperation. I have accessed your site through FTP and I made a small change in the code responsible for the sitemap module in Rank Math. Please try submitting the sitemap again and let us know the results. Looking forward to your response.

    [Rank Math SEO Plugin] Sitemap HTTP Error

    Hello, It turns out I was wrong in my previous response: the XML sitemap is supposed to have the noindex header, as we don't want it to appear in the search results and compete with other pages on your site. This means that the header can't be the source of the problem. Where exactly are you trying to submit the sitemap URL in the Search Console? The sitemaps are automatically submitted by Rank Math so normally you don't need to send it manually. You should see the sitemap(s) listed under Index > Sitemaps in the newer version of Search Console. If the error is still happening, please create a screenshot of it and share it in the Sensitive Data field. Thank you. Looking forward to your response.
