How exactly does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps have and why are they essential SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all webpages organized in sections as they show up on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a significant effect on the popularity of your site, especially when you have more content. It will allow site visitors to browse the web pages and find what they need much quicker, which will increase the possibility for them to come back to the site or to show it to colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also required for search engines like google to index your site content better, so some pages will show up in the results for particular searches, which may not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the needed website content. This is especially valid when you modify some web pages because the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the internet site again in order to index the latest content. Having a sitemap nowadays is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for every prosperous Internet site.
