sitemap validation error
also getting same error when i upload to search console (sitemap looks to an html page)
can anyone help me to fix it
this sitemap is made with free generator without any 3rd plugin
You cannot use an external sitemap generator because of the restrictions on free hosting. Read more in this KB article:
While sitemap generators can be used on free hosting, they are blocked by the system that @wackyblackie mentioned. You have two options.
- Ignore it and don’t create a sitemap. They are not really needed for SEO since they only tell the spiders where to look, but they will find all your pages through links on your site anyway.
- Use Cloudflare. Unfortunately, you are using a free sub-domain, so this is not possible. If you wish to get a free domain from Freenom, you can follow the guide below
Search engines should just work with the sitemap, even if some generic sitemap validator can’t detect it. Search engine crawlers are a lot more sophisticated than that.
