Sitemap help needed

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by Liminal, Jun 21, 2005.

    hey all,

    my site uses mod_rewrite to display job detail pages. the database grows daily and each job gets displayed using a pattern similar to this: example.com/job/200, example.com/job/201, etc (i.e. no static pages involved; each page request produces a corresponding job details page pulled from the database).

    so, given this dynamic url pattern, can i even generate a usable sitemap?

    thanks for any help

    Yes, just create a sitemap.php with a sql extract of all job ID's and link them to this url structure.

    See for max size https://www.google.com/webmasters/sitemaps/docs/en/protocol.html#faq_sitemap_size


    Search engines will not process Sitemaps larger than 10MB (10,485,760 bytes) in length when uncompressed or that contain more than 50,000 URLs. This means that if your site contains more than 50,000 URLs or your Sitemap is bigger than 10MB, you must create multiple Sitemap files and use a Sitemap index file. You should use a Sitemap index file even if you have a small site but plan on growing beyond 50,000 URLs or a filesize of 10MB.
