If you create a Page in wordpress for your homepage it is redirected to the root by wordpress.
But, http://www.wordpres.org/homepage appears in the sitemap.
Google webmaster tools now reports on sitemaps with redirected items. Google does not like to see redirects in sitemaps.
I tried adding the Page id to the exclude list but it did not remove /homepage
I cannot exclude Pages completely as some important content is on them.
Is there a workout for this?
