It has been my experience that site maps that are nothing but pure links tend to end up with a PR0.

WG,

It has been my experience that site maps that are nothing but pure links tend to end up with a PR0.

I have no idea why, but with no links during the beginning of Esmerelda, a client's Site Map went to a PR5- same as index page.

Has never fluctuated since...and I've installed the beta toolbar. Still PR5.

All other internal pages are PR4. Any ideas on what is up with that?

Regards,

AW

echo1573,

Have you seen Google's Site Map:

Site Map [google.com]

I try to make the site map have some useful text...

Regards,

My sitemap has maintained a good PR for the last couple of years (even through the dominic/esmerelda saga) and has nothing but links on it.

Every single link is an internal link, so perhaps this has something to do with it.

Site-maps are a good tool for helping the bots find the darkest deepest recceses of your site.

My site map, all links, has the PR I would expect, one less than index page.

I believe that a site map should be mostly (if not entirely) links, so do not really see where the problem might be.

I can only back everyone up here, I have a sitemap with well over 200 links on it with a PR one below the root index.

Hmm. Has anyone ever seen a Site Map that is equal to Index page PR? The site map on the site I refer to is actually a "cliff's notes" version of the website with first couple sentences from each page (just 24) under the link.

It's a nice page, but I don't want Google to take it over the index page like they did last 3 months.

Why the heck would it show a PR = to index with no links? Odd...

Of course you cannot know the exact PR of a page since the toolbar only shows an integral value.

Assuming the toolbar truncates (rather than rounds):

Index page "real" PR 4.3, sitemap page "real" PR 3.6, you see toolbar PR of 4 and 3, respectively, and say all is normal.

Index page "real" PR 4.9, sitemap page "real" PR 4.2, you see toolbar PR of 4 for both and wonder what the hell is going on.

Why not slap a little relevant site text on your site map. Never know when it might draw a visitor or two.

I've determined that my site maps get a lot of visitors, many from within the site, so I consider the site map design to be second most important to the home page. A page full of nothing but links will probably add to the dismay of a visitor who is lost or is having trouble finding what they are looking for.

And to keep with the thread, non of my site maps have a prO, but none of my site maps are only a list of links.
