Sitemaps are great things. Not only do they provide searchers with a way to easily navigate your site, but they also let search engine crawlers find all your content.
As such, sitemaps have become a regular tool in the SEO arsenal. Today, however, I came across a forum discussing sitemaps. There were many questions on the proper way to use sitemaps such as 'should I limit my sitemap to 100 links as Google suggests? And if so, what do I do for sites with more than 100 pages?' and 'why use a sitemap? Why not just use Google's XML Sitemap submission service?' to name just a few.
So I thought for this article I'd address a couple of these issues and show you what I've found.
