The problem is that Google hates pages in the sitemap that do any kind of redirect. So, try something from this few options that crossed my mind: Don't let the page in the sitemap to redirect (the pages must give status code 200 - OK) Change the pages in the sitemap with the landing pages. Exclude redirect pages in sitemap.


The first option was added about a year ago - see more about it here: http://blogging.nitecruzr.net/2014/11/blogs-to-have-automatically-generated.html The other option still works AFAIK, and there are many advice articles out there written when the first option didn't exist, which therefore recommend the 2nd.
