excessive traffic .Possible to avoid?
« on: July 04, 2010, 02:01:32 AM »
Hello Oleg.
I ran an unlimited version of sitemap generator on one of my websites and it created a sitemap of about 2300 urls before i stopped it. For those 2300 urls sitemap generated 180 mb of data.
My question is.. is it possible to create sitemap without actually loading page/graphics etc to reduce bandwidth. One of my sites has near 100k links and traffic on my host is limited.

Please let me know.
P.S. I tried to post in section of this forum dedicated to unlimited version but wasn't able to.

Thanks

Hello,

image/css/etc files are never loaded by sitemap generator, only the html part is crawled. Also, you can use "Do not parse" option to skip certain pages from crawling, while still adding them in sitemap.

Hello,

yes, it makes just about 2Kb per page, which is rather lower than average page size I would say.

Oleg,Thank you for quick reply. Could you please explain how you gotten 2kb/page?
in above stats i divided 1198314 / 13360  = 89k

Am I missing something?

Sorry, my mistake, I used 26M memory usage for calculation. 89K is probably somewhat higher than average page. Can you check the size of html source for one of your pages?
