Understand how sitemap generators function, discover how to utilize them and learn why sitemaps are really important for search engines.
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all web pages organized in sections as they show up on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a considerable influence on the popularity of your website, especially if you have a lot of content. It will permit your site visitors to browse the pages and find what they need much more quickly, which will raise the chance for them to come back to the site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also essential for search engines like google to index your content better, which means that some pages will appear in the results for particular searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even if you have the needed content. This is especially valid when you modify some pages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl the internet site again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap these days is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for any profitable Internet site.
