Title: Sitemap for News Website
Post by: gurumayum on 09-24-2019, 22:54:47
Hello
I have a News website with daily updates of 5-10 news item. I want to create a Sitemap for my news website. I am confused, as my site have more than 10,000+ news item, how do I go with this?
My site uses Joomla and K2.
I am aiming to use the sitemap for Google and Bing

Thanks a lot

Limit of sitemap.xml file is 50,000 URLs.
Create different sitemaps for different categories of your webpages. Ex - /businessnews.xml, /sportsnews.xml, /regionalnews.xml
If the URL limit is reached, create a part 2 of the same category. This way it will be easier to track.
After all the category sitemaps are created, put all of them under one sitemap and submit that to google webmaster.
Any sitemap has the limit of 50,000 URLs or 50mb, which ever comes first.
