Hello friends as I discussed my previous post sitemap is graphical representation of website pages and helps to search engine to index & crawl web pages. But sitemap has some limitations in terms of size and numbers of urls.
Sitemap has – maximum 50000 urls & max 10MB file size (after un-gzipping)
If your website has more than 50000 urls and wants to create sitemap for your website then you can do this with the help of sitemap index.
Sitemap Index: – Also a XML file having number’s of sitemap entries and used for creating sitemap of large website having web pages in lacks and many more.
Syntax of Sitemap Index:
<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
