Not able to exclude pages/posts from sitempa

  • Hi,

    How do I exclude certain pages from my sitemap? When I look in the documentation and help files, I’m not seeing the same Rankmath plugin options in my WordPress settings as the help files & screenshots display. I don’t see any option to exclude posts as per the help files.

    There is a link at the top that reads “Change Sitemap settings of single pages. Learn more.”, but when I click here it just takes me to the General settings page.

    I’m currently trying to update my sitemap, as it’s still showing in GSC as no index, even though all tags are off. Is there a way to push an updated sitemap from Rankmath?

  • Hi,

    Please note that some options are only available when you enable the Advanced Mode in Rank Math. We give you an option to choose between the two during the setup wizard and you must have chosen to use the Easy Mode.

    You can switch to the Advanced Mode from the top-right corner at WordPress Dashboard > Rank Math > Dashboard

    Here is a screenshot for reference:

    With that said, the noindex on sitemaps is on purpose and nothing to be worried about.

    If you mark something as noindex, it will be excluded from sitemaps automatically.

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

    Awesome, thanks you – yes that fixed it. 🙂
