Sitemap Concern

by AffiliatingAlan 4 replies
I notice my sitemap has a crap load of useless attachment image id pages. Wordpress seems to make a page for every image you upload.

Am I better off excluding all of these from my sitemap so it goes from 19 urls to about 5 urls, looking neat.

Or am I better off downloading a plugin to redirect all these image attachment pages to the homepage?

    This is common with WordPress; attachments by default have their own pages.

    Have you heard of Yoast's SEO plug-in before? It has the ability to redirect attachment pages back to the main page. That's what I'd recommend you do.
