We are seeing versions of our xml sitemaps appear in 2nd and 3rd position for searches like this:

faith lutheran case study company name

I can see if we searched using site: but having the xml sitemap appear with such high ranking is really not what we're after.

Is there a way to block this from appearing in serps but still allow the xml sitemap to be indexed?

Thanks

Rosemary

Why do you want it to be indexed?

I used the wrong word Jill, I didn't mean indexed. I meant for the search engines to be able to read.

When we create these sitemaps we upload them into GWMTs. And then they are getting automatically indexed.
