How does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps have and why are they extremely important SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a specific file that includes a list of all the web pages on a certain website. It enables both visitors and search engines to find content faster and easier, so it can boost the success of any kind of Internet site. When visitors are looking for a particular web page, the sitemap will help them to find it and the enhanced user experience raises the chance for them to come back to the site eventually or to recommend it to other people. Search engines also look for a sitemap on every single website they crawl since such a file permits them to index the site content better and to keep track of modifications on various webpages which will later be shown in the search engine results, thus a sitemap can raise the ranking of a particular site. Considering the fact that the number of sites keeps increasing on a daily basis, using a sitemap is necessary if you would like your site to be more popular.
