Wow nice site you have here!

I have developed an asp.net 2 website. Dont worry asp.net specific features wont be mentioned.

Some questions on SEO and designs
1) I have a sitemap for all my pages. The sitemap.xml is create via code. One of my pages is a blog. This blog has 300 posts or 300 pages. Should the site map inlcude all 300 posts or pages or just the top 20 or so ??

2) I have used the H1 tags around my headings. Between the h1 tags I have used <font>,CSS and other light asp.net controls, like asp:label that allow html and text to be written from code. Is this ok ??

3) ASP.net renders my <H1> tags like this : &lt;h1> The &lt; is the < in ascii I think. The html still works ok. Is this an issue ?

4) Out of 1 to 10, how bad is it to have long URLs. I have long URLs with adequate easy reading descriptions in the. But they are still long: Eg www.mydomain.com/Pages/info.aspx?jh65=MjAw&su23=Ng==&65tf=84&bots=my-subject-matter

Thanks

If you're going to use a sitemap (which isn't necessary for most well designed sites) it might as well contain all your URLs.

You can use whatever code you like on your pages. Search engines care more for the content, not the code.

It depends. For the most part, the length of the URL is not a problem whatsoever. However, if there are multiple query parameters that can cause duplicate content issues that's where you can run into problems. But it has nothing to do with how long things are.

You may wish to read some of the posts in our dynamically generated content forum for more information.

Thanks for a response.

I do use <h1> and <h2>, but they render like this in the source code.

&lt;h1> and &lt;H2>

The &lt; is the ascii code for <. Everything still works as far as I cant tell.

Should I expect any issues from google crawler when they see &lt; instead of <???

So the text embedded in the H1 elements is larger than the text embedded in the H2 elements -- and you're not using CSS on them?

Interesting.

It's probably due to whatever HTML editor you're using and/or how the files are getting ftp'd.

At any rate, it makes no difference to search engines whether you have H tags or not, so don't worry about that. You might want to remove them from your code all together if the code is showing in the page itself as part of the content.
