Yoast SEO – 404 Site map – Common Issue

I have seen many people having this issue and asking for help on forums. It is a really common issue and can be fixed within 3 or 4 clicks.

The Yoast SEO extension for WordPress is no question, one of the best extensions available. It can help you improve the SEO value of your content whilst generating XML site maps for search engines such as Google.

Once installed, many people have the issue that their site map is showing a 404 when they try to access it.

Resolving Yoast SEO 404 Site map

Navigate to:

WordPress Admin -> Settings -> Permalinks

The next stage is simple, just scroll down and save your preferences, without any changes.

This will generate the new site map & resolve this issue 99% of the time.
