Exclude url dont exclude the url string
« on: August 24, 2011, 08:46:06 AM »
Hi,
I dont completely understand how to exclude urls.

I have the last month had my sitemap exclude url configurations like this:

component/
index.php?option=com_user&view=register
index.php?option=com_user&view=login
wholesale
faq

However, no matter what i search for in google, its the www.url.com/component/ result string that always appear first.

I have the same content in the parse url field.

Is everything here correct according to how the system works?

Hello,

"Exclude URLs" setting is used to tell generator to NOT include certain pages in sitemap. It doesn't remove anything from urls though.

no no, i realize that. But the products on my site are found in two urls strings. One, in /shop/   and one in a component for new products which i have on my front page. However i did/do not want the urls related to the component to appear in google, at least not at first, so i have set the exclude urls to compoonent/.

Are these URLs still included in sitemap?
