Submit only URL that have changed recently

Q: My site has tens of millions of URLs; can I somehow submit only those that have changed recently?

You can list the URLs that change frequently in a small number of Sitemaps and then use the lastmod tag in your Sitemap index file to identify those Sitemap files. Search engines can then incrementally crawl only the changed Sitemaps.

Can we do this with the sitemap generator?

sitemap generator creates full sitemap from the scratch each time and submit it. However, you can use "RSS feed" and submit it separately as it will only contain links added on the site recently.
