Hi, Kinsta community, I am new here, I need your help. I am facing this error in the Google search console
“Sitemap can be read, but it has errors, Sitemap is HTML Your Sitemap appears to be an HTML page. Please use a supported sitemap format instead”
please help me to sort out this my site is on WordPress and link is (redacted)
Thank and regards
Hi @John128 and welcome to Kinsta Community!
My best guess is that the URL you submitted in the Google Search console was not .XML page/URL but HTML page/URL. Similar to what’s reported/suggested here.
As I can see your sitemap is accessible (looks like you have Yoast plugin installed) and you could just add
/sitemap_index.xml after your WordPress domain URL (e.g.:
https://yourwpdomainanme/sitemap_index.xml) and you might want to use this URL format to submit in the Google Search console. This is not something that we (Kinsta) can control though.
Hi, I am Emmanuel Katto from Africa and I’m facing the same problem in my WordPress website.
Are you facing the same problem in your WordPress site with the SiteMap error issue as reported in this post/thread (is there any specific error message you got)?
Have you tried the suggestion I shared above?
Hi, not yet will try this method and let you know about this. Thank You!
