    I don't know what you mean. You mean adding external links to a sitemap? Nope, not gonna work. Sitemaps are for crawling not indexing.

    Some webmasters adding their backlinks in their sitemap for quick indexing, but no knowledge in your question... LOL

    Sitemap helps search engine crawlers to crawl through your contents easily.
    If you mean that, go for it :)

    These are link indexing tricks that some webmasters use however not sure if it works. Sitemaps are meant to instruct crawlers on your website's navigation.

    I am kinda confused about your question. I agree with you guys! Sitemaps usually works only for crawling and not for indexing.

    If you mean a bunch of sitemaps, that's redundant. You need one or maybe a few more if they are different from each other enough, but that's it.
