Search console could not fetch out sitemap: https://algo.monster/sitemap.xml

Please help! Thanks so much good people!

Hello,

Could it be the case that you may be blocking the access of your sitemap.xml from Google bots address?

You may verify that by checking the Web server logs and see if you can find the accesses of GoogleBot to the /sitemap.xml URL.

Hi, thanks for the suggestions.

I checked the log and don't see any Googlebot trying to access /sitemap.xml but i do see Googlebot crawling other pages.

Our https://algo.monster/robots.txt allows all bots so it's not clear to me why Googlebot does not access /sitemap.xml

Hi,

Thanks for the reply. Yes, live test shows "URL is available to Google".

However, it has been in this state for months, and the pages listed in the sitemap are not crawled.
