    Did it work in the past? Have you recently changed anything in the robots.txt or .htaccess files? You may be blocking the Google spider from crawling your site properly, or even at all.

    Log into Google Search Console and look at the warning messages. Fetch the sitemap and see what happens. If you still get a 403 error, follow Google's recommendations to try to resolve it.

    So if you added h-t-t-p:// and you're trying to get webmaster tools to scan h-t-t-p-s:// you might have issues.
