    I think a better question is, why do you want 8 million pages indexed on a site?

    It's an ecommerance site with a massive database that allows customers to lookup technical data and purchase what they need.

    I could go into massive detail but I can't be bothered. Target the best selling products with the best profit, create an SEO plan for each category and products. Make it small, get them ranked, and scale it up. This is the only way. I'm struggleing with my ecommerce site too, but I'll get there. It's the fact I have 2k categorys and 500 products that makes me think where do I start? Start small, see results, rinse and repeat.

    Pro tip, the higher domain authority you get the easier your inner pages rank. Make sure all onsite seo is done then focus on offsite.

    Hold my beer. I'll talk with Matt Cutts.

    The almighty Amazon itself has just 33+ Million indexed pages. If your site has good content ie good onsite seo, then you dont' need to get 8 Million pages indexed. Just build some high PR links to homepage and categories and do good internal linking. Google will Index it for you.

    I agree with Panther28, you can submit your sitemap to google, but it may take a while for all of your links to get indexed.

    Already done. But that doesn't mean they'll index them. That just says they exist.

    Unless your site develops incredible global authority, there's no way that you'll even get close to having all those pages indexed. Concentrate on the best sections in terms of ROI and keep sending a wide selection of links across key pages that reference others and force google to keep noticing the deep pages. Honestly; You'll be very lucky to ever get 10% of them indexed.

    I agree and disagree. The site is less than a year old and has 10 percent already indexed.

    The question is more of what process would each of you take to get your client or your website indexed with that many pages.

    The problem with ecommerce sites is that the content is cookie cutter, unless you are doing some serious mashup.

    So even if they are indexed, they are probably in the supplemental garbage index and not worth anything.

    As noted by others, I would also focus on top sellers, and create an SEO plan around them (that is what I am PERSONALLY starting to do). You can win with a low authority site if you laser-beam pages. I would rewrite the content and add some additional content using reviews (rewritten). That way you can rise above all the cookie cutter sites (and with laser beam link building about the mid-authority sites).

    I think indexing 8m pages has no value (see my comment on 2nd para).

    I will second that. What will you do with indexed pages without any rank anyway. Just start look for keywords and rank your categories and with time you will gain more authority

    Try to submit sitemaps and your websites across various online web directories and useful resources.

    EDIT: Whoops mis-read the question, thought you asked if there was a maximum number of urls in a sitemap.

    Yes, either 10 MB max file size or 50,000 URLs, which ever comes 1st. That's why there is a sitemap index file, which can include 500 separate sitemaps within it.

    So lets say he hit 50000 urls before the 10 MB max file size, he would need 160 individual sitemap.xml files listed withing his Site index file to list all 8 million urls.

    We're up to 200 sitemaps on the site, we put a max of 50k per sitemap, some have as little as a few thousand depending on the category.
