Not able to exclude pages in sitemap

  • I want to exclude some pages so that google cannot fetch them again when I submit sitemap again. I have added page IDs like 1478,1238,1849 in post exclude section and hit submit button but still I am able to see these pages links on sitemap page.

  • Thanks for getting in touch with us.

    You must add all the sitemap file locations to the exclusion list in your Cache plugin so that the sitemaps are never cached. These are the files you must add to the exclusion list:

    This is required since Sitemaps are already cached internally by Rank Math and we flush them everytime you post something new and with our cache – you won’t see the issue you are seeing in Google.

    Hope that helps and please do not hesitate to let us know if you need our assistance with anything else.
