Support » Plugin: Yoast SEO » Sitemap empty Google Search console

  • Resolved marcelabohorquez


    Hello there,
    I have a question regarding a sitemap generated by YOAST. I have an error of the type “Sitemap can be read, but has errors” in google. Looking into it, it is to do with a type of data that won’t necessarily have content all the time. So it is empty now but it might have content next month. YOAST was working properly, but my question is, should a sitemap like that be included and submitted to google search or should it be kept out or just not generated at all.

    Could you please clarify if you are using the latest version of WordPress 5.4.2 and Yoast SEO for WordPress 14.5?

    The error ‘Sitemap can be read but has errors’ from Google Search Console can be very broad. Could you please provide us with more information and details?

    When you mean you have a type of data that doesn’t have content all the time, do you mean one of the sitemaps underneath the main /sitemap_index.xml?

    This is now sorted. Thanks for your help
