    Google Sitemap Question


    Does anyone know how long it takes Google to index a sitemap once it has verified it??!??

    We have submitted our XML sitemap, everything all ok, no problems etc etc, but have around 60,000 links. Google verifired the sitemap last week, but still hasn't crawled all links?!?

    Can anyone advise?

    Thanks In Advance

    During this beta period, we can't make any predictions or guarantees about when or if your URLs will be crawled or added to our index. Over time, we expect both coverage and time-to-index to improve as we refine our processes and better understand webmasters' needs.

    We don't guarantee that we'll crawl or index all of your URLs. However, we use the data in your Sitemap to learn about your site's structure, which will allow us to improve our crawler schedule and do a better job crawling your site in the future.

    But it crawled my site on the 10th day.
