Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Google does not like old links in my sitemap

    Hi,

    Firstly I want to thank you for this awesome plugin.
    I have been using it for many years now.

    I have recently noticed that you are now keeping old versions of the sitemap, but the thing is that some of my old links there are long gone. Google does not really like that and gives multiple 404 errors. Now I am working to setup about 50 301 redirects because of this.

    Do you have a solution for this?

    Kind thanks

    I have the SAME issue and it urgently needs a fix!
    As the new sitemaps are dynamically generated, I cannot even delete the old ones from the server, the old 404 links are kept (in the database probably) for ever and re-send to google again and again with every new submission!

    THIS CANNOT BE guys! It’s really not good!
    I have manually deleted the outdated sitemaps from google, but they will find them again through your dynamically generated maps and I’ll have the 404 problem with google forever. I see this rather as a bug … 🙁

    Any fix please?

    Thanks a lot!
