I was in GWMT and noticed my sitemap is generating pages that are still in draft.  Is that normal?

I know 404’s don’t really hurt SEO, but it concerns me and makes me wonder if my sitemap is setup wrong.

Thanks for any advice.

Hi Chris,

A sitemap generated by our XML Sitemap Module should only included published pages, not drafts.  Will you please post your URL so we can take a look at your sitemap for you?

Thanks,

Nina

I found out it was actually generating url’s for images that were still in drafts.  so i guess the images aren’t actually drafts.

Steve,

I think you’re right.  I have a plugin I’m using on this page only and it’s producing lots of these:
floridafreshpress.com/portfolio/avoid-scams/

Basically every image on this page is getting its own page.
floridafreshpress.com/portfolio/

Is this bad for my SEO?

Should I exclude this from my sitemap?
