Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Sitemap appears to be an HTML page

  • acekin


    I have recently switched to XML Sitemaps from another similar plugin. However, Google Webmaster Tools reports that my “Sitemap appears to be an HTML page.” I have since removed the checkmark from the “Include sitemap in HTML format” option and resubmitted the sitemap. My site on GWT is with the https protocol and I am looking at the right site.

    I have noticed a couple of other similar posts that did not have an answer to this question. It would be great if we could find out how to fix this problem. I turned the previous plugin off since it had not been updated in the last couple of years, but may have to go back to it, because it worked.

    Thank you,

  • I could not make this plugin work at all. Google Webmaster Tools simply did not see any sitemap file. So, I removed it. Clearly, it is a popular plugin but, … Not for me, and the support forum did not change that. Although I am not seeking help anymore, I am not marking this as resolved either, because it is not.


    aynı sorunu ben de yaşadım. Çalışan bir eklenti bulduğunuzda paylaşır mısınız?

    @raozkardes ben sonunda JetPack plugin’in “Create XML Sitemaps” secenegine tikladim ve calisiyor gibi. Googl Webmaster Tools sikayet etmiyor.


    Teşekkür ediyorum.
