[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Noindex Images (7 posts)

    Google Webmaster Tools is issuing me with Warnings! as I am trying to hide my images from search engines. My robots.txt has set several image folders as Disallow, however, Yoast SEO indexes these images & adds the URLs to the sitemap.xml. This creates a conflict.

    How can I prevent the images being listed on the xml sitemap? I checked 'Exclude post types - media' but this had no effect. I am also using NextGen Gallery for the images.

    Could please Yoast or someone help or give advice on this one...?

    It is becoming quite urgent and I am not able to find any solution anywhere. It is surprising that this advanced plugin lack some basic capability to exclude images. It is far from everyone that wants images included.
