The true story about sitemaps

Standard

The funny thing about blogging is that you allways have to write a funzy title even if it has nothing to do with what you are talking about 🙂 Today I found out a possible problem regarding SEO which seems to be the sitemaps. There are many people out there who claim that sitemaps are not really helping, and actually can cause deindexing of your web site from google.

Daniel Lindberg  got his site deindexed and then reindexed with less pages in SEPRs, while the topic is discussed in many webmaster forums.

Personally I can’t really express any opinion as I only used sitemaps once, and I can’t measure the results. Of course the warning is there, and we will wait from someone with more experience to tell us what actually happens when you submit a sitemap to google.
