    so far i have not noticed any difference, maybe it helps it find pages it wouldn't otherwise. but i dont think it has anything to do with getting you indexed faster..

    sorry guys, it got my site de-indexed within hours. I was having a valid PR-2 and after submitted a sitemap and after its verification and NO WARNINGS though, my site lost the PR-2 to PR-0

    I couln't upload an XML sitemap so I did one in text and google accepted it. It helped me get some more of my pages indexed in google.

    @affcashgains,
    I don't think it is attributable to submission of a sitemap. Maybe de-indexing was due to another
    tweak made simultaneously.

    According to
    google dot com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?answer=40318
    "Sites are never penalized for submitting Sitemaps."

    I don't think it indexes you faster, but it just ensures Google doesn't miss any of your pages. This is especially useful when a lot of your pages are dynamic (google bots struggles to read them)

    Well, geez, I should sure as hell hope not! The whole point is helping them to find you - they certainly shouldn't be penalizing us for that...
