Site Map On Dynamic Site
Posted 03 September 2003 - 06:09 PM
The dynamic site I'm currently working on has a content management system and the client adds several new pages each month.
To prevent the site map from being constantly out of date or requiring manual updating, the web designer has suggested a database generated page which will have this url: www.mydomain.co.uk/sitemap.asp
Is that heading for indexing trouble with SE's other than Google??

If your site map is simply outputting the website content and adding new pages as they are formed then there really shouldn't be a problem,
That said, overtime, as the the website grows, you may well find that the site map ends up looking like a dogs dinner in that it contains 100's upon 100's of hyperlinks. I'd at least consider factoring this possibility in to any new design so that this doesn't happen.
Reason? well, general tidiness aside, there is a generally held belief that google for example, will not index and perhaps not follow links that are over and above a threshold of 100. Additionally, Google will only cache the first 101k of any page which suggests that content over this threshold will not be indexed.

Helps both users and spiders.

My site is an asp content managed site using SQL to house the text. Even though the navigation of my site is clear enough for a SE spider to follow, I added a site map just to be on the safe side. What I found is that it actually makes it easier to view my site because from that one page a person can see all of the content offered and quickly decide where he/she wants to visit. Now I just have to give some thought to the 100 link maximum and write some code to ensure it does not go over.
