How does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps serve and why are they crucial SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all pages organized in sections as they appear on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence can have a crucial influence on the popularity of your website, particularly if you have a lot of content. It will enable website visitors to search the web pages and find what they need way quicker, that will increase the possibility for them to revisit the Internet site or to show it to colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your site content better, so that certain pages will appear in the results for particular searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even if you have the desired site content. This is especially valid in case you modify some webpages since the sitemap informs the search engines that they must crawl the site again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap these days is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for any prosperous Internet site.
