We all know that every XML sitemap file can include a most of fifty,000 URLs however what’s counted because the 50,000 URLs? John Mueller was requested if Google counts each the placement URL and the choice URL within the 50,000 limits. John stated onit’s simply the placement URL.
As Google, “All codecs restrict a single sitemap to 50MB (uncompressed) and 50,000 URLs. If in case you have a bigger file or extra URLs, you’ll have to break your record into a number of sitemaps. You possibly can optionally create a sitemap index file (a file that factors to an inventory of sitemaps) and submit that single index file to Google. You possibly can submit a number of sitemaps and/or sitemap index recordsdata to Google.”
