I have a Wiki site (running MediaWiki) which I am trying to optimize in terms of page speed and SEO. One of the many things in my to-do list is submit a sitemap on Google Webmaster tools, now here is my scenario.
I have just finished generating my sitemap and it has over 70K URLs indexed. Due to the way MediaWiki is built most of these pages aren’t actual content but secondary pages, such as properties, editing forms, etc. they are mainly for internal site managing use, although they are not protected and anyone who cares may access those URL, that’s why the sitemap picked them up. And now here is my question.
Will submitting this sitemap do me any good or will it just confuse Google about which pages are actually important in my site? Can this even hurt my site to Google’s eyes?
