Maximum Number of URLs in a Sitemap MarjoryM 8/11/10 10:09 AM
I have read the FAQs and checked for similar issues: YES

My site's URL (web address) is: Not applicable - this is a general question

This is really a clarification question. I read in the help files that the maximum number of URLs that can be put into a sitemap is 50,000 (maximum size 10MB). Also, I see that I can list up to 1,000 images per page listing. I'm kind of assuming that the 50,000 URLs refers only to the html pages and not the image URLs but just so I'm clear, here's my question:

Do the URLs leading to the images that appear in the page listing count towards the 50,000 URLs? Or does that just refer to the number of HTML pages?

Thanks in advance for any clarification you can provide me with,

50,000 URL's is the crawling length so it should be along with image URL or you can go by size 10MB.
