This is a very convenient navigation structure.
The Google webmaster guideline invites us to have a sitemap on the web. It also suggests that, with 100 or more links in a sitemap is always best to break the sitemap on different pages. For websites with thousands of web pages, you must rank the pages and highlight links to home pages throughout the site. You can add a single link to each core page with a descriptive paragraph about the content of the page and then link depth at the central site of such pages.
Web sites with pages that run in the tens of thousands of pages must have contained site map with multiple layers and hierarchies based on contextual issues and divisions. Sometimes very large web site with such top-level contextual map of the site is accompanied by a type of cartography that is a series of links to different websites.

- Down load and install the sitemap generator (such as Google Sitemap Tool)
