My SITEMAPS are getting indexed. Need help implementing the NOINDEX, follow tag.
I noticed some of my sitemaps are getting indexed. I obviously want them followed, ie their links crawled and those pages indexed, but not the sitemap itself. I found the following tag that I'd like to add.
<META NAME="ROBOTS" CONTENT="NOINDEX, FOLLOW">
However, what I need your help with is that I only know a little HTML and I'm used to putting meta tags in html pages, and not sure how or if I can place them in .txt (my yahoo sitemap called urllist.txt) or .xml (my google sitemap) sitemap pages.
In other words, none of my sitemaps have <HEAD> tags, so I kindof doubt I can just paste the above TAG at the top of these 2 sitemaps(?) In summary, how do I add the above index-but-don't-follow tag to my .txt and .xml sitemaps which are not html? Thanks.
