What triggers this issue?

This issue is triggered when an invalid Sitemap format is used in Site Audit.

Why is it important?

A Sitemap helps point our crawlers to your most essential pages. Providing a valid format Sitemap also allows Site Audit to crawl your site efficiently.

How to fix it?

Site Audit has been optimized to process and analyze XML Sitemaps.

For a Sitemap to be considered valid, it must be presented in an XML format. Currently, Site Audit does not support any other Sitemap formats.
