Large Websites and Multiple Sitemaps

XML Sitemaps for Search Engine Indexing

We have had a few users request 1 Million page crawler limits or more so I thought this would be a great topic to address in our blog. Whether you are creating a sitemap to improve your search engine optimization or creating it for website project planning purposes, there are size limitations to consider. According to, the official protocol for XML sitemaps, they should not contain more than 50,000 website URLs and no larger than 10MB in size.   Google, Yahoo, and Bing also follow these same size restrictions of XML sitemaps. If your site's page count is larger than this, you will need to use multiple sitemaps and link them from a sitemap index file which will identify each of the sitemap files for the search engines for more efficient indexing.

Sitemap generators can be used right in the browser or some come as programs that are downloaded. Gone are the days of manually creating sitemaps with no other option—though some may still opt to do this.

A site audit will help you learn the ins and outs of your website, what content is on the site, how it’s structured and frankly, if the content you do have is working in your favor (i.e. doing what it’s supposed to; convert!).
