I use the xml sitemap generator for wordpress. It works great but recently I did some pagerank sculpting and made a few sections of my site noindex, nofollow that are more for visitor reference than something I want indexed and ranked.
I am thinking that I probably don't want those pages in my sitemap, especially when they get de-indexed. However, the xml sitemap generator adds these nofollow pages automatically.
Should these pages be in my sitemap?
If not, is there an easy way to edit them out or not added to the sitemap in the first place? Maybe a smart sitemap builder that doesn't add noindex, nofollow pages.
These pages are scattered randomly throughout my sitemap and manually editing them out will take a long time and they would would just be added again next time my sitemap was rebuilt.
