    If I have set the change frequency of my web pages as daily when they are not actually changing daily , will it make any negative impact on my Ranking in google ?

    Of course yet. G spider might be confused and it will confuse your page authority over the others as well.

    I don't think so... I search for some discussion in Webmaster World:

    "My take on it is still the same - Google will use your input, but only as one factor in their total crawling algorithm. It's more than a placebo, but Google still makes their own decisions - including the changefreq setting as one factor."~http://www.webmasterworld.com/google/3668135.htm

    You can use this tool http://sitemapdoc.com/ to change the freq.

    No, it is only a guideline to the search engine spiders as to the frequency to expect changes. However, there is no point in telling the search engines to visit your site often if your changes are infrequent.

    In webmaster tool, you can find this statement. Which mean Google have their own setting, sitemap frequency does not influence their decision. However, this is only applicable to Google search. Other search engine can be have different impact.

    Ideally leave the frequency blank, and let the search engine discover it automatically.

    But how will this affect the crawl rate? Or the indexing of your site?
