Today, I find the urls in google sitemap xml file are include session ids.
and see Googlebot crawl our site is Mozilla/5.0, and it seems only crawl sitemaps url.

But the urls include session ids.

What will happen?

Our site indexed pages drop to near zero. I know, there maybe has another reasons.

Anyone track if google sitemap urls include session id will result what?

If you site has been previously indexed by Google I don't think it should have to be too bad. In that case the new URLs will be noted as duplicate links, and might show up as supplemental pages.

Either edit your sitemap urls by hand, removing the session IDs, or and re-submit it with the correct urls.

However, if this is the first URLs Googlebot ever spidered on your site, it might meen trouble...
