I recently uploaded sitemaps on my webpages. One page got a boost of 18% in impressions, another site did not move, and a very complex site all with sitemap_index and multiple sitemaps (~200,000+) pages resulted in a huge loss in impressions.
My site has a simple layout. A database of things which you can show, and comment on. The things main "show" pages I rated with a weight of "0.9" in the XML sitemaps, the comments with "0.7". I thought this would reflect the site-layout/page importance and google would compliment me for that. But obviously didn't..
Any ideas? Or is going without sitemaps really better?
