I currently am tasked with submitting our website sitemap to the search engines every week.
We have a module which does offer sitemap generation but we find using it does not work very well as not all pages are included and it does not split the sitemap by content.
I've used various (online and offline) tools to generate the sitemaps which is not the problem. The problem is that after every generation (which takes most of each Monday) I have to manually go through the sitemap and categorise the links in to products, pages, categories and sub categories.
I've experimented successfully with XSL to split the sitemap but it is still a labour intensive process.
Does anyone know of a good method to split the sitemap?
Currently there are around 20,000 links (iirc) in total.
