Wordpress Sitemap with lots of noindex nofollow

 7:13 pm on Jul 9, 2010 (gmt 0)

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.

Any Suggestions?

There are many sitemap generators for wordpress. Some of them allow you to exclude certain pages, others do not. If you search for "wordpress sitemap generators" you should be able to find one that can help your specific situation.

I have been doing some searching at the wordpress plugin site and can't find one that specifically says it will not pull in noindex, nofollow pages. Perhaps one of these plugins does this but does not specifically mention it.

If anyone knows of one specifically, please PM me.

I may need to use a more powerful non-wordpress plugin site map creator.
