Dear Frnds.!

I m having b2c portal with lots of pages in it.

I have generated xml through online tool & the size of that xml is 45 kb.

SO technique says it should not be more than 10 kb. Is that right thing?

And if yes than how can i split my sitemap.xml in parts.

Please help me out frnds..

Waiting for prompt response.

Thank You,
Rahul D.

What is SO technique? We process XML files of several megabytes without any problems, server-side.

I am not sure what you meant by 'SO technique.' I guess what you meant was "search engine optimization" technique.

Is your sitemap.xml for Google? Google sitemap allows a maximum of 50,000 URLs i.e. about 10MB in size. So, assuming that I was right about what you meant by 'SO', I think you have heard the wrong thing. It is 10MB not 10Kb.

One of my sites has more than 2,000 URLs and the size of the sitemap is about 720Kb.
