comment HTML sitemap vs spamming
I find sitemaps really useful, if I cant easily find what I'm looking for, I often click to the site map - although maybe that means their navigation stricture needs improvident!

comment Webpages being de-indexed seemingly for no reason
The URL you posted has a different canonical tag defined. Is this a change that has been done since it was de indexed?

comment What does “no return tags” mean?
You need to remove the canonical tag that points to the singe URL. Doing that you are telling Google to ignore the URLs with the parameters and to count them as a single URL. Either define a canonical tag pointing to the themselves (with the parameters) or have no canonical tag.

It could be that Google cannot crawl the URLs with parameters correctly. Have you checked if they URLs are indexed in Google? If so check Google'e cache of the URLs, view the source code of the cached page and see if the tags appear.

comment href lang annotations in xml sitemap file displays issues
Thanks John, but why does a 'normal' xml sitemap file display correctly in browsers without using XSL? It just seems to be href lang xml sitemaps that display like that.

comment href lang annotations in xml sitemap file displays issues
I also created an xml sitemap file using Google's exact example and it had the same issues, so I know it's not something in my code. Still interested in why it displays as such though.

I also see a different robots.txt than the one in OP, although also different from above (but may have changed in that time)

The current entry would only block URLs that contain '?s=', but not any other parameters without that specific string.

comment How should a robots.txt be for a wordpress site in order to be mobile-friendly ?
I actually read your original comment wrong, I thought you said there 'must' be an empty line! Sorry.
