I have a big database of 5M post, and I have sitemap index like this but without lastmod, and because of this large number of posts it will be hard if I make and sitemap index contains 100000 sitemap and each sitemap contains 1000 posts, so what about if I just include the posts of last month in these sitemap index?

Will it affect the Google indexing and Google news indexing?

  • I am not sure I understand this. Sitemaps are easy. I have created sitemaps with 1 million +/- pages - easy peasy. Blink of an eye! I would not be creative on short-cutting something important. – closetnoc Oct 26 '15 at 14:38
  • I'm not sure I understand either but It'd only be hard if you hand-create the sitemaps line by line. You might want to look at some sitemap generators. – Mike -- No longer here Oct 27 '15 at 3:25
  • i mean if the sitemap conans the whole posts it will make the server die – Mostafa Elkady Oct 28 '15 at 14:39
