    Sitemap XML files are not considered in the same way as links in content by Google. These sitemap links are to inform the search engine where to find content on your website.

    As such they are FOLLOWED by search engines, so it would be pointless to ‘nofollow’ them – defeats the purpose of the sitemap.

    Sitemaps carry no page rank, nor do they transfer rank to content. Having a sitemap will not get your site into trouble

    There are rumours going around the SEO fraternity that sitemaps may harm websites – That’s all they are – rumours – ignore them.
