Are site maps still relevant?

Recommended Posts

I have been pondering about this one now for a while...

 

We are already over 1000 pages imagine if this thing grows, would it be necessary to have a site map, I mean it will have to be generated daily and submitted and generating a sitemap when you get in that 5K pages range starts to become a tedious process.

 

 

So from a SEO perspective besides the sitemap and google webmaster tools, what strategies and technical changes can I make in order to get us growing continuously.

More for google's SEO purpose that I am concidering it. I made a sitemap last night took 39 minutes to index this entire site. I do not want to know how long one would take for one of the bigger forums.

 

I think I will create a cron job and create a new sitemap every friday.

Why don't you create a sitemap php page and generate it on the fly? Submit a link like "..../generate.php?t=sitemap.xml" to Google and when it is hit it reads the DB and responds with xml and content-type application/xml.

 

Or have a cron job or something run every morning at 4AM to generate xml for you.

That is exactly what we ended up doing :)

 

This is a php generated page -> https://www.platinumwealth.co.za/forum/sitemap-index.xml

 

via .htaccess it hits "/generate.php?t=sitemap.xml"
