    Use not more than 100 links in a page so that the sitemap will not look crowded. If you have more than 100 pages, split it and give the link from the sitemap 1 (containing 100 pages) to the next one and go on like this. It would help to optimize the crawling rate of bots /spiders

    Sitemap can be as many as 50,000 links. Beyond that, it's no longer good.
    You can create sitemap1, sitemap2, sitemap3...

    sinadijaja22, xml sitemap doesn't have pages, I think you confuse it with html sitemap.
    XML sitemaps should be no larger than 10MB and can contain a maximum of 50,000 URLs. If you have more than 50,000 pages in your web site you should use sitemap index file: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sitemap_index

    I think perhaps dairyman is talking about HTML sitemaps? (Where 100 is a good suggestion.) While the original poster asked about XML sitemaps.

    webmaster2all, supporting 50000 urls depends on sitemap protocol.

    For HTML sitemaps, you may want to check this article about HTML sitemap navigation, it suggests using 100-200 URLs per page. However, XML sitemaps have a much higher limit. The XML sitemaps protocol defines it to 50000 URLs per file... So don't bother splitting your XML sitemap into multiple files when you only have 2000 pages.

    Here's what google has to say about the URLS limit & size limit of XML sitemap

    I would recommend to have maximum to 300 URLS in the XML sitemap. The reason is very simple.
    1. It wll have maxium 300*6 = 1800 plus 5 more lines.
    2. Size will be less & can easily be downloaded by search engine
    3. Easy to crawl the sitemap as less number of URLs to crawl.

    So if you have a big website then better to divide it by section wise & create seperate sitemap for each section. Then create sitemap index with all the details of rest other sitemap.

    Hi Mecho,

    Tell me how big your website is?

    As i said earlier create multiple XML sitemap & then one index sitemap withe the location of all other sitemap.

    What? couldn't get you. What this 40 links. External links or internal links or any dynamic genearted web pages.

    Extrenal links are not to be added in XML sitemap. Only internal web pages need to be added.
