WordPress SEO by Yoast
page-sitemap.xml appears to be 404 not found in Google Webmasters (7 posts)

    Hi there,
    At first I wanna thanks Joost De Valk for developing such a good SEO plugin and host that plugin as free.

    My problem is somewhat complicated. Here it is?
    Yoast XML Sitemap was working fine in my single-user WordPress Installations but when I move my WordPress site multi-site. I saw that the Google webmasters tools was returning page-sitemap.xml as 404 not found and when I visit my sitemap I saw that everything was working fine. Then why did Google Webmasters returning my page-sitemap.xml as 404. Remember that I'm using WordPress multi-site.

    I also read the most recent following thread on WordPress forums which is the same problem that I'm getting but that doesn't work for me.

    What should I do? Any solution. Thanks in advance.

    I am having a similar issue. I noticed Yoast sitemaps are returning 404 in webmaster and for some reason it isn't working for me on my site either. I have looked for suggestions on various forums but nothing is fixing the issue for me.

    Would greatly appreciate any help as Yoast seems a better solution to Google XML Sitemaps with it submitting images.

    I had the same problem. I reverted to 1.4.12 and then updated to 1.4.13 again ......and the sitemap.index magically appear.

    I have the exact same problem, and I'm not using multisite.

    Google Webmaster Tools Tells me about a 404 error, but when I check my sitemap, there is no problem.

    The thing is : when there is "www." before the adress of my site, i can see the sitemap. But if it's "mysite.com/sitemap_index.xml", it works fine.
    "www.mysite.comsitemap_index.xml" doesn't work (I get a blank page).

    It was working good for month until 3 days ago. How to fix that problem without switching to another plugin ?

    Mine has magically started working again too!

    I deactivated then activated the plugin and seems to have done the trick, very strange.

    Emmppp - Seems unusual. Maybe you should check your head tag to see if your canonical linking is working in the right way, and how you initially submitted your site to webmaster (with or without the www.) Don't know if they could cause such a problem really, just a wild guess.

    hi,
    I also noticed the adding of "www" helps in getting the sitemap.

    In WordPress multisite I change the childsite settings. For example I have a childsite: childsitename.mymultisite.com which I changed to http://www.childsitename.com to get the sitemap to work.

    Not sure why this is, but it works in my situation.

    Good luck!
