Google Console - General Http Error

Yesterday, I linked my website through Cloudflare, After that, I am getting an error in my Google Console. The error is “General HTTP error” And this error is after shifting on Cloudflare. Please help I am not able to solve this issue.

Sounds like Google requests might be challenged or blocked for some temporary reason :thinking:

I wonder if any of Cloudflare security & protection settings like Bot Fight Mode or Browser Integrity Check challenged or blocked the request :thinking:

If yes, then if you navigate to the Cloudflare dashboard → Security → Overview and lookup for Firewall events for the past 24hours or so. Once you find them, click on a particular one to find more details about it (user-agent, IP, HTTP version …).

How does your security & protection options at Cloudflare dashboard for your domain look like?

For my case:

  • Security Level (works when on Medium, no issues)
  • I am under an attack mode (should be disabled and used only in such cases)
  • Bot Fight Mode (works with enabled, no issues)
  • Browser Integrity Check (works with enabled, no issues)
  • Custom Firewall Rules (works with them, even I don’t have in them)
  • Managed WAF Rules (works with them)

May I ask you to post and share your domain name in bracketed dot [.] notation here with us so we could double-check, troubleshoot and provide some feedback information regarding the URL status, canonical, robots.txt file, sitemap.xml file and some other? :thinking:

Maybe the sitemap.xml file cannot be fetched over HTTPS due to some HTTP(S) error or wrong conte-type being served as for it :thinking:

Otherwise, maybe it’s the typical GSC issue as they have had them in the past.

I wonder if the sitemap was generated “on-the-fly”, therefore maybe some timeout occured at the moment when Google was checking it for the first time :thinking:

no, it was all okay before yesterday.
