Can sitemap issues causing ranking problems?

If Google says that two of your pages is having issues then those two pages may not appear in the SERPs.
It's only going to cause an issue with the pages that have a sitemap error. If WMT has a problem with a sitemap for a couple of syntax errors, its not going to put a hampering down on your entire site.

We get it, advertisements are annoying!

Sure, ad-blocking software does a great job at blocking ads, but it also blocks useful features and essential functions on BlackHatWorld and other forums. These functions are unrelated to ads, such as internal links and images. For the best site experience please disable your AdBlocker.
