Google XML Sitemaps
Large Sitemap! Loading problem in WP-Admin (5 posts)

    Hello I'm the owner of a big music portal with a lot of articles, generating the XML sitemap takes about 20 seconds which is an inconvenience because it slows admin actions as posting or updating by quite a while. I'm wondering if I can limit the number of posts to be included in the sitemap without affecting search engines. Do old posts eventually not present in a limited sitemap get penalized on search engines or once crawled I can safely leave them out with no penalty? Thanks

    We're having the same problem with our mortgage blog.

    With google sitemaps generator enabled it can take over a minute to publish a blog.

    You can limit the number of posts in your sitemap and also edit the memory allotted under advanced options under settings > XML-Sitemap in the wordpress dashboard.

    Also, there is another sitemap plugin that will split up large sitemaps into smaller sitemaps. it looks pretty promising. Good luck!
