RE: Feature: XML Sitemap for every blog to boost Google indexing speed

in #engravelast year

Thank you for your contribution. You can actually write a script to submit the sitemap periodically to Google, Bing and other search engines. I wrote a PHP script to do this long time ago and it still works!

For bigger sites, single sitemap.xml may become too big to be accepted by most search engines. e.g. Google denies sitemap with more than 5000 URLs, in which case you need to categories your URLs and store in separate sub-sitemap. Also, the sitemap can be zipped as well.

Thank you for the details! I am aware of sitemaps limitations and I'm going to introduce a simple solution for that in the near future. Sitemaps could be automatically split into "chunks" (or like you said - sub-sitemaps). But right now there is no such a big blog on Engrave for which it could be a problem :)

I believe that using Google Search Console is much better than submitting sitemaps automatically because of useful information (like search positions, CTRs, etc) this service provides. I will, of course, consider pushing those sitemaps automatically to the services mentioned by you but for now - let bloggers do that manually :)

Thank you for your review, @justyy! Keep up the good work!
