    Best method for splitting up a sitemap


    I am currently working on a sitemap for a very large site that I am designing. Problem is that no matter how hard I try, I can't get the complete sitemap down to 102 Kb or less, which I believe is the google limit on filesize.

    As I know that google bot finds pages easiest that are 1 level, what is the best way to go about splitting up the sitemap page into 2 seperate pages ?

    Thanks

    I would higly recommed a freebie like phpHoo3 to solve your type problems.

    It will be easier to categorize the sections, which will make it more user and search engine friendly. The page size will go much smaller, cause you will just display that category related links ;)

    This program is written mainly for link submitting purposes so you might also want to re-install it as a link exchange program as well.

    You can have a demo and download at http://www.cable-modems.org/phpHoo/

    Hope this helps.
