    Hello,

    A site map is a visual or textually organized model of a Web site's content that allows the users to navigate through the site to find the information they are looking for, just as a traditional geographical map helps people find places they are looking for in the real world. A site map is a kind of interactive table of contents, in which each listed item links directly to its counterpart sections of the Web site. Site maps perform the same service that the layout maps in large shopping malls perform: without them, it is possible to explore a complex site by trial and error, but if you want to be sure to find what you're looking for, the most efficient way to do that is to consult a model of the resources available. If a Web site is small and uncomplicated, a site map may be unnecessary, just as a layout map may not be required for shoppers to find their way through small shopping malls.

    Hi,

    The sitemap is very important to have. This will help spiders to crawl your website without any difficulties.

    You can have html sitemap or xml sitemap, if you are using any cms then you will get many plugins for the same.


    thanks.

    A site map (or sitemap) is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. It can be either a document in any form used as a planning tool for Web design, or a Web page that lists the pages on a Web site, typically organized in hierarchical fashion.

    A sitemap is a file where you list the web pages of your site to tell the search engines about the organization of your site content. Search engine web crawlers / web bot read this file to crawl to your website.

    There are two types of site maps:
    HTML sitemaps
    XML Sitemap

    HTML sitemaps
    It allows the users to navigate a website.It helps the visitors to find the contents. The visitors can go to the sitemap to find any topic they are unable to find.

    XML Sitemap:
    It is in a structures format that the users does no have to see, it tells the search engine about the webpages in the website and how often they are updated.
