We have a website that is heavily optimized based on our content. This optimization has made us rank extremely high for some very competitive keywords. Recently, we took a number of pages from a certain section of our site and started populating the SEO tags via an xml for easier updating.

The pages in question have actually shown an increase in visits, revenue, and orders. However, our main index page has dropped, specifically in regard to our main incoming keyword.

Is there a correlation between this xml change and the home page? No content on the homepage draws from the xml that I know of (though I am checking with our development team). Has anyone had similar issues to this?
