Really? I never knew that. It reminds me of Google Mini for site search. If
the number of pages exceeds a certain value, the price go up. Could they
possibly make this a 'premium membership feature'? Does the sitemap
generation tool give up after 50,000 pages or is it the crawlers that reject
large files? If the former, you can slice down the site, generate subsets of
the overall sitemap and merge files at the end, just stitching together
beginning and end.
