A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - a short list of all web pages organized in sections as they show up on the Internet site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a substantial effect on the popularity of your website, especially when you have a lot of content. It will make it possible for your website visitors to browse through the pages and find what they need faster, which will increase the chance for them to revisit the website or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your site content better, so some pages will show up in the results for specific searches, which might not happen without a sitemap even when you have the necessary content. This is especially valid in case you update some webpages because the sitemap informs the search engines that they have to crawl this Internet site again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap these days is a necessity rather than an optional feature for every profitable Internet site.
