• Resolved Goingfor2


    I’ve had some major issues with the sitemap, and I’ve been able to fix all but one. All of the sitemaps have been “Fetched” with discovered URLs, but the /sitemap_post.xml will not Fetch for some reason and I’m pretty sure that’s the most important one. See the 8th line down.

    /sitemap_addl.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 2
    /sitemap_archive.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 51
    /sitemap_attachment.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 15,003
    /sitemap_author.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 116
    /sitemap_category.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 87
    /sitemap_feedzy_categories.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 1
    /sitemap_page.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 89
    /sitemap_post.xml Couldn’t fetch 0
    /sitemap_post_format.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 4
    /sitemap_post_tag.xml Mar 3, 2019 Success 10,448

  • Same here.

    I use compression for my sitemap and the three post.xml files are all empty as shown in Google Console.

    @barrelleaf please don’t crosspost as this issue has nothing to do with yours. I already told you how to fix your issue.

    @goingfor2 I’m guessing that your sitemap is timing out due to the large amount of URLs in there. I suggest changing the amount of URLs per sitemap to 1,000.


    I don’t think it has nothing to do with my issue cus what you’ve told does not fix the error…

    And the reason I post here is that I got the same sitemap error as @goingfor2 described here, so I think it’s probably a good idea to report here so as to indicate that it’s not a single incident.

    1) My issue fixed itself. It just took some time for it to be indexed.
    2) @barrelleaf, stop using the compression sitemap. That’s what my original problem was. Google said they were all empty, but they weren’t. Once I turned off compression, everything indexed (except for the post.xml, but it eventually did)

    Thank you for sharing the info with me. I will give another try to turn off the compression and wait for a little bit longer to see what’ll happen.

    Sorry for bothering you guys but I just got pretty worried since everything was fine with the original setting. 🙁
