    Adding few more details to my previous comment.

    Lets say a post is associated with multiple categories named obiz, obiz-development and obiz-ecommerce.

    obiz(Parent Category, It is also Primary Category)
    — obiz-development(Child Category)
    — obiz-ecommerce(Child Category)

    So how does wordpress seo plugin will pick which category in sitemap? I think it should take primary category when it does create URL in Sitemap but it is not doing that. Instead of it, it is taking obiz-development.

    Two question:

    1) How does yoast seo plugin creates URL in sitemap suppose some post is associated with multiple category.

    2) Do we have any option so that we could tell which category to pick for sitemap URLs?

    Recently you guys have introduced the concept of Primary Category and I liked it. https://yoast.com/yoast-seo-3-1/

    One simple question: How do you generate the XML sitemap when a post is associated with multiple categories?
    For example one of my post is associated with three categories and out of those three categories I made one category as a primary category. Now I was expecting that Yoast plugin will consider primary category and make the URL accordingly in sitemap but it is not working like it.

    I couldn’t understand how you guys picks the URL in sitemap if some post is associated with multiple categories.

    Please help, Your help will be greatly appreciated!
    Thanks in advance.

      Hey! If it’s not using the primary category in the URL in the XML sitemap, that’d be a bug…

        Yes, I also thinks that this is a bug. It will be of great help if it is taken care quickly – may be in next plugin upgrade.

        Thanks Joost for your quick help – I truly appreciate that.

    Yoast is used so much out in SEO Land, but this is really the best how to if seen so far. Have watched a many videos but your blog drives it home. There are still some thing I don’t fully understand. But that’s not the plugin, it’s my limitations.

    I replaced my seo plugin with Yoast. Within one month I have started getting good traffic to my blog. I’m following all the metrics recommended by yoast such as keyword density, h1 tag, etc. Thanks for such a superb plugin
