How do I manage the file size for Google
« on: January 07, 2008, 09:28:37 PM »
I tried adjusting the url's in the config file - no luck. So, what else can I do to reduce the size of the file so that I can submit it to Google?. I tried doing the sitemap.xmll.gz, sitemap1.xml.gz and etc.,. Suspect that I have more pages than url's.

It is around 50 MB and I guess I need 5 separate xml.gz files with an index?

That depends on the total number of URLs indexed on your site. You can decrease the number of URLs per sitemap manually in config.inc.php:
    'xs_sm_size' => '50000',

Already did that - did not work. The default in GSiteCrawler (another sitemap creator) has a setting for size, as well as, url's. Anyway of putting that setting in your app?

There should be no problem with that, Sitemap Generator splits large sitemaps onto multiple files by default. Can you let me know your generator URL in private message so that I can check it?
