  • Mmh... I have two sites with sitemaps submitted here and in Google. The first Sitemap has 12.500 links and MS Webmaster Tool shows only 2.400 indexed pages. For the second it show 6.400 of over 3.500.000 links!

    Google is also not indexing all pages of the sitemaps but a whole lot more than Live!

  • Hi Darth Sonic,

    3.500.000 links !
    What kind of site is that ?
    Do you really think that LiveSearch should index all these pages ?
    It seems beter to me to optimize only a few ones for Search Engines. 100 should more than enough.
    Better to have 100 pages with a "correct" rank and good keywords than 1,000,000 with a bad rank...

  • The link count is okay. It is an online shop with over 250.000 products! Each has several subpages and there are over 1.000 categories with subpages and so on Wink
