    Hey!
    I'm using Yoast SEO and i checked "noindex,follow" for the categories and tags. Is it a good thing?
    My XML sitemap contains the category and post tag sitemap. Is it better to not include them in my XML sitemap?

    Thanks.

    I believe you can allow the category to be indexed as long as it dosn't compete with your key words your trying to rank your main page. you should not allow the tags to be indexed from what I know.
