Here is a major update of this post. I’ve finally found a site where you can make a good XML sitemap for up to 15,000 pages (5000 x 3) for free! This is Free Sitemap Generator Com. As far as I can see it works well and incidentally also finds broken links efficiently, I’ve just indexed my book reviews (over 700 pages) and it’s worked without errors, unlike the site I was using previously.
For WordPress I’ve installed a plugin which provides a sophisticated sitemap.xml system which seems to be working well (google-sitemap-generator.4.1.0).
