Hi, I have noindex on my tag and author pages, however, if you have noindex pages that are on your site map, google search console shows them as errors. Is there a way to remove tag pages and author pages from the automatically generated sitemap? As most don’t have enough content to be in any way beneficial for SEO.
I have looked on the forum and in 2018 there was a response to a similar post saying that this functionality was being built at the time and to track it here. However, that appears to just exclude tag & author pages with no posts, not those with very few posts.
So is there any way to completely get rid of tag and author pages from my sitemap?
I also have the same issue. I need to remove author pages from sitemap, but there is no option to achieve that. I used nofollow, noindex in the header to let Google know. But GSC complaints with errors :(
Crazy isn’t it @Madusanka - when you use a site map plugin for any jamstack language like react or vue, you can choose which pages to include and which not to include, along with using wildcards like all pages with …/pages/*
