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 - a list of all pages grouped in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a considerable effect on the popularity of your Internet site, particularly when you have more content. It will make it possible for site visitors to search the webpages and find what they need considerably quicker, that will increase the possibility for them to return to the website or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also needed for search engines to index your site content better, so that certain pages will show up in the results for specific searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even if you have the required content. This is especially valid in case you modify some web pages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl the site again to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is a necessity rather than an optional feature for every successful site.
