Hi everyone!

Since I reported the sitemap of [my site] the number of pages indexed is declining rapidly. In April, we had 12,800 pages indexed and now 4600.

Would you have an idea? Can a sitemap be harmful?

Perhaps now they're indexing the pages they should instead of a lot of duplicate URLs of other ones that don't need to be indexed.

Just a guess.

Look through what they're indexing to see if it's the good stuff or not.
