tribe-ea-record post type — ignore in sitemap.xml?

    We are looking to make our sitemap files as helpful as possible for search engines, and I see that the Event Aggregator is adding a post type to our sites “tribe-ea-record”. Does this post type have any value to search engines or end users, or should we ignore it in the sitemaps we generate?

    We are using the Yoast SEO plugin for our sitemaps, and I’m not seeing the post type appear in them at the moment, but there may be some backend processing we can optimize by explicitly ignoring that post type from the sitemap generation process.

    Here is an example sitemap generated by Yoast SEO: https://go.umaine.edu/sitemap_index.xml

    Hi Mike,

    Great question!

    There’s no particular reason to expose that in your sitemap. We’ll take a look and see if we can avoid it from being included automatically in future, but in the meantime if WordPress SEO offers a means for you to remove those entries, that would be a good call.

    Let me know if you have any further questions on this 🙂
