I have a classified ads website with approx 20,000 ads at present. I have submitted sitemaps to Google, etc, and only about 30% of my pages have been indexed. I have read an archived post on this website that stated the following: "There are a number of products available to enable this that can produce the static HTML pages off your database quite easily.. This would benefit the user and the search engines in indexing your site."
Basically, I am hoping to find a solution that would allow me to generate a sitemap to enable the major search engines index all of my ads. Also, new ads are added daily.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
All of your pages will probably never be indexed. Often with extremely large sites you will not achieve 100% indexing.
Here are some ways to help increase the percentage of your site that the search engines will index:
-Submit a sitemap (submitting doesn't guarantee indexing)
-Interlink your pages
-Make sure there is significant unique text
-Develop external links deep into your content
RE: Your linking structure should look like a pyramid.
>> Not sure how to go about accomplishing this on a classified ads website. Content reflects pages that are unique to one another.
RE: Interlink your internal pages like wikipedia does as well.
>> Seems like a big task, and again, most of the site's content reflects pages that are unique to one another.
