[[*template:eq=`6`:then=`<link rel="canonical" href="http://onsitenow.co.uk/blog/">`]]

Because in my blog summaries I use the Summary (introtext) field rather than a snippet of article content + elipsis

So on my list of posts page the content is unique, there is no duplication of text with the articles themselves (though I do use the intro text in the meta description of the article, but I don't think this will count as duplication) So I think having this page indexed is quite good because it's got unique content that's changing regularly, has relevant keywords and links to the appropriate articles.

But GoogleSiteMap has never shown the Category, Archive or Author pages because they are like pseudo pages they aren't separate resources. Google picks them up from links rather than the sitemap. Unless you are saying that having a sitemap.xml means the Google crawler will be a more frequent visitor?]]>

It's a snippet which generates an XML Sitemap. Use the snippet on an empty page with page type XML and submit it in Google Webmastertools. This speeds up indexing in Google considerably. Please be aware that both the snippet call and the page where you placed the snippet call should be non-cached.]]>

Please let me know if webmastertools also picks up that noindex and will show you a clean 'HTML improvements' report.

OK, will do, but I expect it will take some time. I've resubmitted the site to Google's index in the Fetch as Google section, so just need to wait for it to be crawled again I think.]]>

Yes, of course, you are right, that is a much better solution!

I shall do it that way.

Thanks for pointing it out to me.
