Can Sitemap damage listings?

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by iluvm, Jan 24, 2006.

    Hello,
    My site www.iluvm.co.uk was never into top ten pages on google for any of my keywords, it was listed on about page 14! :mad: . Then I appeared on page 13 and slowly crept up to page 5 where it seemed to stagnate.
    SEMrush
    I then created a google sitemap and within 3 days my site was back on page 13 :confused: Anyone else experienced this?

    Can the sitemap cause this? I can not see how but strange how after a few days my sites back to the dark pages no one looks at!

    Can anyone see anything on my site that Google hates?

    I dont think it was the site map since google suggest creating a site map. I believe what you are seeing is the datacenter reverting back to old data.

    Rankings fluctuate all the time.

    Sitemaps help google find all of your pages without you having to worry about making a link to all of them. They won't affect anything else.
