Site disappears - always seems connected to Sitemap

I found it!

After months of up and down with Google, I saw it with my own eyes!

Three hours ago Google downloaded my sitemap.

Three hours ago I went into oblivion, and disappeared.

Google Sitemap controls report my sitemap is OK with only one error for January 23, which I corrected the same day.

According to all of my notes, every major drop has resulted right after Google accessed my sitemap, and today, I saw it with my own eyes.

My most serious drop-off with Google, that lasted almost two months, came immediately after I had designated domain within the sitemap control panel.

Maybe this drop won't last as long, or maybe longer. But I am convinced that sitemap retrieval by Google is implementing the beginning of the fall.

I also know that I have a solid site, no spam and no black hat techniques. Google is losing out bigtime on authority sites, as the roller coaster continues, and good webmasters go away.

One other thing...my page ranks reported in my sitemap control panel have never recovered from the first major fall, and show that most of my site has not been ranked.
In fact, 98% of my site shows google page rankings, and has for over three years.

I still think something is broken at google.

As far as I know there is no way of closing an account. If you close the web master account then you'll close your adsense account. They are all linked, aren't they?
As for SiteMaps, they are just crap. Like I have said before, why should we use them? To help Google find our pages? To help Google not to have to spider our sites? I don't see any reason whatsoever to use them. Does Amazon.com have to use a sitemap so google can find all their pages? Hell no! That sitemap would be HUGE! Gb's HUGE!
It's just some sneaky way for google to either do something OR NOT to do something. What it is they'll never tell us. All they say that we help ourselves so Google can fine our pages. Hell, if we need a sitemap, then there is something wrong with our site navigation!
Right now, the problems is not with site maps. One of my sites once again dipped into oblivion for no apparent reason. The only thing that I have done since last time is to add some new content. Nothing major so I don't have a clue what they are doing.
Seems like they f**ked up again and all we can do is to wait and see if it comes back or not. Last time in January it took 2 weeks before they found out that they had screwed up so traffic came back, but before than it was months before they changed their stupid algo.
With the dip not only traffic sucks but also adsense. For some reason the click-through rate dips, PPC is LOW and eCPM is even worse. So when it rains, it pours......

I wonder if there's any correlation to pages going supplemental and their presence or lack or presence in a sitemap file?

From what people have told me there is a relationship when you use multiple Google programs? The key element being multiple not one. It seems to me there is a redundancy or overlap factor involved. Personally I donít think Google even knows or cares anymore.

So what you guys are telling me is we must end google adwords as we end our google accounts, is that correct.

As far as I know all "accounts" is just one account. We use the same email address and password for all of them, right?
I haven't seen anywhere where you can delete an entire account.
