Hi,

My business website has some partner sides - very similar and related business websites - I link some of the pages of partner sites from my sitemap. I dont think that would do any harm in SEO point of view. But my team mates says thats not how it's supposed to be. Yes but i dont think any user go check sitemap and why should it matters?

    A sitemap is a map of just your website. Link to other sites all you want from your content pages if it is helpful to site visitors but don't put other websites in your sitemap. It is a "sitemap" not a "sitesmap", after all.

    Google tells you what a sitemap is in the very first sentence of this article - https://support.google.com/webmaster...r/156184?hl=en

    Oh, and yes, it is bad.
