A sitemap is a visual or text map of an Internet site - an index of all webpages arranged in sections as they show up on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a crucial effect on the popularity of your website, particularly when you have more content. It will allow your visitors to search the pages and find what they need much more quickly, which will increase the possibility for them to return to the website or to share it with colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your site content better, which means that some pages will show up in the results for certain searches, which might not happen without having a sitemap even if you have the desired website content. This is especially valid when you update some web pages since the sitemap informs the search engines that they have to crawl the website again in order to index the new content. Having a sitemap nowadays is essential rather than an optional attribute for every successful Internet site.
