Add URL’s to Ignore and Exclude

Search Knowledge Base by Keyword

Use this option to add any URL’s not to add from alternative home pages to privacy statements etc which often get added to XML site maps during the crawl.

Rules & Format

Enter URLs separated by comma or new line
http://www.mysite.com/directory/ – to exclude exact URL
http://www.mysite.com/directory/% – to exclude full directory

Note:  This does not stop them from being imported into the database – they will not be added to the final XML export.  Also, if they have a robots block they will also show up on the error report.

Recommendation:

Any URL’s that you are excluding in this feature should be removed from your XML site map or URL import source.  This feature is not designed to be a long-term fix.
