Changing sitemap in Magento 1.9

Changing sitemap in Magento 1.9

Hello, I am trying to remove some pages in my sitemap that are causing google crawl errors. Is there anyway to change the auto-generated sitemap? I'd rather not create a new one because my site is so large.

Hey,

If you can't re-generate sitemap.xml then add urls in robot.txt to tell crawler to ignore that urls.

Example:

Disallow /my/url/here

You should start url with /

 

If don't know robot.txt then try this tool to validation: http://tools.seobook.com/robots-txt/generator/

We've already done that but the URLs are still indexing and we are getting an error from Google Search Console.
