A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - a list of all pages grouped in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a significant effect on the popularity of your Internet site, especially if you have a lot of content. It will allow your visitors to search the web pages and find what they need much quicker, that will raise the possibility for them to come back to the site or to share it with friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your content better, so that some pages will be in the results for certain searches, which might not happen without a sitemap even if you have the needed website content. This is especially valid if you update some web pages as the sitemap tells the search engines that they must crawl the internet site again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap nowadays is essential rather than an optional attribute for any successful site.
