Hello -
I am managing a e-commerce website, which has around 600.000 products to sell. I want to know how often we need to update sitemaps, should we do after we add/remove new products from our inventory or should we do that on a monthly basis for example?
Thanks in advance for the help

Do this with software and automatic. Do not use your time with manually added links.

Maybe some will suggest the best software.

I am using gsitecrawler for creating the sitemaps, but I want to know how often to crawl the site for new sitemaps. Usually takes 2 days to create the sitemap...that's why I want to know which way will be most painless.
Thanks

"Maybe some will suggest the best software."

There are web-sites avaialble 'get xml sitemap' which generate xml sitemaps.

with 600,000 products, perhaps it would be better to create a script to generate the 12+ sitemaps from the product database instead of crawling the site.
