How precisely does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps have and why are they crucial SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - a short list of all webpages organized in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a substantial impact on the popularity of your website, especially when you have more content. It will permit visitors to go through the pages and find what they need much faster, that will increase the possibility for them to return to the Internet site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your content better, so some pages will be in the results for particular searches, which might not happen without having a sitemap even if you have the required site content. This is especially valid if you modify some pages as the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the website again in order to index the new content. Having a sitemap these days is a necessity rather than an optional feature for every thriving website.
