Less than 100 links per sitemap page.

If you have a large site then construct an overall sitemap with links to each sector of your website then a sitemap for each sector and then subsectors etc. Put a link to the home page on each sitemap page (don't use 'home' as the anchor text!).

Use text links <a href="http://yourdomain.com/page.htm">keywords</a> and make sure you use the best possible anchor text for the referenced page.

Use h1, h2, h3, <li>, and <ol> to structure the sitemap page.

Keep it simple.
