I have a site that I want to exclude certain urls from the xml sitemap. I have tried to add part of the url string that I do not want indexed to the exclude url list, but it isn't. Not sure if i am doing something wrong or if this is outside of the possible parameters.
For example I have domainname.com/folder1/results.html that I do want included, but there are multiple pages in that results page that I do not want added for now as the site is just far too large.
So I do not want to include: domainname.com/folder1/results_page1.html, domainname.com/folder1/results_page2.html, domainname.com/folder1/results_page3.html, etc etc.
I thought if I added "_page" (w/o quotes of course) to the exclude url list it would not spider those, but this doesn't seem to be the case. Does anyone have any suggestions on what I can do. Do I need to add like a * parameter to end of _page, like _page* ? Is this even possible?
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
