How to exclude certain URL's
« on: October 06, 2014, 05:10:16 PM »
Hello,

I'm having trouble excluding certain URL strings. I tried doing this on the configuration page, but the URL's are still being included in the sitemaps. Any advice?

Thanks!

I was trying to exclude all the URL's below within the "Exclude URLs" box in the configuration page:

You should specify them without domain name in Exclude URLs:
blog/page/
blog/author/

I tried that and re-crawled manually, but the links I requested to exclude were still included in sitemap.xml.

I also tried with sitemap-blog.xml, and that didn't work either.
