Hello,

make sure that those links can be found by sitemap generator by "browsing" your site, starting from homepage (i.e., there should be a "links path" to find those pages).

I thought that i could do this with out having links, that the spider would search down through the folders? the purpose of doing this is so I dont have to do links to 200 pages that are designed strickly for seo. guess I'm wrong, no way to do this with out building the links?

Hello,

it's not necessary to have links to all pages right on homepage, but it's required to have the link at least somewhere on your site. Sitemap Generator crawls your site similar to normal visitor instead of reading folders on your host, since that is the only way to correctly index dynamic websites.
Also, it's highly suggested to have html links to those pages to improve search engines crawling anyway.
