I initially did not think that these pages should be indexed, should I submit one now?
The form submits a GET request and returns a url with all the query parameters
.why did you not think so before and what has changed with those pages or your thinking?
this site has failed so completely leaves me worried that it has failed not on its merits but on something I overlooked from a purely technical perspective
According to the Latest Update: 01 Jan 2017
Any Sitemap file is limited to 50MB (uncompressed) with a maximum of 50,000 URLs.
And a Sitemap index file (not to be confused with a Sitemap file) can include up to 50,000 Sitemaps.
So, for a single Sitemap index file, the maximum capacity of URLs and storage could be calculated as described below:
in terms of URLs:
50,000 sitemaps = ( 50,000 * 50,000 ) URLs = 2,500,000,000 URLs
In the order of 500k entries when taking only sample of all possible urls
