Google can't fetch my sitemap

https://crackingdacode.netlify.app/

Google search console says “couldn’t fetch” sitemap. It happened on another netlify website and I was stuck during 6 months. Is there a problem or something I should know about netlify and google search console?

Thanks

PS: very important issue, people can’t find my blog

hi there nicolas,

how are you creating the sitemap? are you using the netlfy sitemap plugin?

No, I have an 11ty and Alpine blog: the sitemap is created by 11ty. I checked it and it’s valid.

Hi @NicolasK,

This is a known issue with Google Search Console. Google doesn’t provide any logs about this and for random reasons keeps saying couldn’t fetch sitemap. If you wish, you can try to contact Google about this, but as long as your sitemap is working, which I can see it is, the issue is on Google’s side.

I’ve experienced this myself on few of my sites and all I could do is wait indefinitely until Google decided to check my sitemap again and saw that it was working.

This is awful news. I waited 6 months on my previous site and it still was in “couldn’t fetch”.

Deployed on Vercel: sitemap success was instantaneous. I don’t understand this problem which has a big impact.
