We noticed that the sitemap generated by WP Meta SEO includes anchor links (i.e. https://toufayan.com/products/#buns).
As far as I understand it, this is indexing the same page (toufayan.com/products) over and over again – which sounds bad. The HTML version of the sitemap doesn’t have the anchor links, but its the xml version that gets submitted to Google, right?
If we manually edit the xml version, we’d have to do that every time a page or post is created, defeating the purpose of the generated sitemap altogether.
Please advise on this and/or let us know how to prevent the anchor links from getting added to the sitemap. We’re hoping to avoid removing the links and restructuring the site to accommodate the index as the page is popular plus the task would be quite large.
The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]
