A blog sitemap plays a vital role in your page rankings. If it is not configured correctly your blog pages won't be crawled, indexed and ranked properly. Since our Shopify Blog App allows you to configure blog sitemap in a few clicks, all you need to do is submit it to search engines.
However, if you don't want some pages to be crawled and indexed, you simply need to exclude them from the sitemap. And you'll learn how to do that in this article.
Note: this feature is available in the Pro plan.
To exclude pages from the Shopify blog sitemap:
1. Go to Apps > Magefan Blog > Posts and choose a blog post you'd like to exclude from the sitemap.
2. Find the General settings section and switch the Exclude from XML Sitemap option to Yes.
3. Save a blog post, go to the blog sitemap and check if a post is removed from it.
Note: the Exclude from XML Sitemap option is available for blog posts, category and tag pages, so you can exclude these pages from the blog sitemap if you like.
Once you finish configuring the blog sitemap and the pages your want to exclude from it, we recommend paying attention to other SEO features of this app, like blog permalink settings.
