[resolved] Draft post vs published post (6 posts)

    I had gotten the bright idea to start posts, save then in draft mode and then when I was ready I would finish and publish.

    well I found my draft post title in google search. When you click it, it just lands you elsewhere.

    How do I prevent drafts from showing up?

    Are you using an SEO plugin?

    I'm using the Yoast Worpress SEO.

    Is that why?

    Anything I can do?

    Hello does anyone know why my drafts are showing up in search results before they are published?

    I do not use this plugin, but my guess is that on post, whether draft or not, the draft post is being added to the generated sitemap file. You can verify this by creating a draft post and reading this file.
