How exactly does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps serve and why are they vital SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - 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 impact on the popularity of your website, particularly if you have a lot of content. It will make it possible for website visitors to browse through the web pages and find what they need considerably quicker, which will increase the chance for them to revisit the site or to share it with colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your content better, so that some pages will appear in the results for certain searches, which will most likely not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the desired content. This is especially valid in case you modify some web pages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl this Internet site again to index the new content. Having a sitemap these days is a necessity rather than an optional attribute for any prosperous Internet site.
