SERP drop after installing jsitemap

Post by Ertmania » Mon Jul 09, 2018 9:45 am

After installing jsitemap on my website, ertmania.dk, my SERP has dropped for almost all my keywords. Some keywords dropped Big time.
I wrote the JExtensions Store support for a comment and they answered:
“This fact has nothing to do with sitemaps that are only related to links indexing, not ranking.

Keywords are only related to contents you've on the website. Google has changed a lot in they last 2 years so you may have dropped seo compared to competitors.”
I find that a strange answer since the purpose of using SEO extensions is getting better SERP?
Any opinions on this subject?
