..Just generated my first sitemap.xml file.

The very first thing I noticed – there’s http://www.mydomain/blog/ link which I do not use at all. 
It probably comes form WP default installation.

How do I exclude that from the sitemap?

Thanks,
Ian

Hi Steve,

Apologies, I’m not sure if my client would approve of posting the site/domain here.
The url of the sitemap is a common one: http://www.xyzdomain.com/sitemap.xml .
In that sitemap file, the very first link listed on top is:

URL Priority Change Frequency LastChange
https://www.xyzdomain.com/blog/ 90% Daily

But the site has actually NO active “Blog” page or category link. As I said it probably comes from the default WP installation.

How to exclude that from the sitemap?

Thank you,
Ian
