A sitemap is a visual or text map of an Internet site - a short list of all webpages arranged in sections as they show up on the Internet site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence can have a substantial effect on the popularity of your Internet site, especially when you have more content. It will make it possible for your visitors to browse the pages and find what they need way quicker, that will increase the possibility for them to return to the website or to share it with colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your site content better, so that some pages will be in the results for particular searches, which will most likely not happen without a sitemap even when you have the desired website content. This is especially valid if you modify some web pages because the sitemap tells the search engines that they have to crawl the site again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap these days is a necessity rather than an optional feature for any prosperous website.
