Do Sitemap Effect Backlinks?

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by acetag, Jan 29, 2013.

  1. #1
    Today, I checked Google webmaster tool, I got a message that"Your Sitemap contains too many URLs. Please create multiple Sitemaps with up to 50000 URLs each and submit all Sitemaps." and I saw that my back-link decreased from 1944 to 421. Please tell me does sitemap effect my back-links? or why my back-links go down so much?
    Thanks

    In short in my opinion: The two things are not related at all. (Do also notice that GWT will only show you a subset of your backlinks.)

    Thanks for all helps. I see that google remove low quality back links and save my high quality back links. And my page rank is increased after google update pagerank on 2/4/2013.

    There is no relationship. Sitemaps just tell the search engines what URLs exist on your site to help with indexing.

    I don't think that sitemap really help to increase the backlinks, its good for indexing all page of a website at a time in SERP.

    what i know about sitemap is, it's a bridging section where in SERP's bot will easily access deeper pages. and i am doubtful that sitemap can affect your backlinks. Backlinks are links pointing towards to your site and and site i an hierarchy of links of your website. so that's why they have no connection at all.

    just my opinion.
