A sitemap is a visual or text map of an Internet site - a short list of all webpages arranged in sections as they appear on the Internet site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a considerable impact on the popularity of your Internet site, especially if you have a lot of content. It will permit site visitors to browse through the pages and find what they need quicker, that will increase the chance for them to come back to the site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your site content better, so that some pages will show up in the results for particular searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even if you have the necessary content. This is especially valid if you update some web pages because the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl this Internet site again in order to index the latest content. Having a sitemap these days is a necessity rather than an optional feature for any thriving site.
