Who to create XML sitemap exclude URL parameter in Xenu's Link Sleuth
Best practices to using Xenu's Link Sleuth

Hi All,

I have website which is having 3000+ article/links posted on it. And just week ago it's been redesign and now I've been wondering to create latest XML sitemap for the same.

So problem just that when I run the URL in Xenu's Link Sleuth to fetch my website links, its crawling 9000+ links with adding URL Parameter, like "?Action=" and all.

So how can I skip this URLs with addition parameter and just get crawl canonical URLs to create light weight XML sitemap.

Thanks in Advance.

xenu is simply going to discover the urls you link to internally, so if xenu found non-canonical url parameters you have to fix this in your web application.

Ok that's fine, but is't their any way to skip this links in Xenu itself.

Like if you look at the functionality of the ScreamingFrogSEOSpider it's only crawl main pages and totally skip those all link with additional parameter in it.

Truly Appreciate you feedback, Thanks
