Google accepts simple text files that list URLs. Since Text files contain only a List of URLs Google does prefer you use the Sitemap Method since google receives more inforamtion about each of your URLs. The text file must follow these guidelines:
# Only place 1 URL Per Line in the Text File. The URLs cannot contain embedded new lines.
# Be sure and Fully specify Each URL as Google will crawl them exactly as they are listed.
#Do not place more then 49,997 URLs in a Text File. If you site includes more than 50,000 URLs, you can separate the list into multiple text files and submit each one separately.
# Google only accepts Text Files that use UTF-8 encoding. You can specify this when you save the file (for instance, in Notepad, this is listed in the Encoding menu of the Save As dialog box).
# The text file should contain no information other than the list of URLs.
# The text file should contain no header or footer information.
# You can name the text file anything you wish. Google recommends giving the file a .text extension to identify it as a text file (for instance, sitemap.txt).
# You should always upload the Text file to the Top Level Directory you want the Search Engines to crawl, also be sure that you don't list URLS in the text file that are located in Directories above where your sitemap is placed.
