How precisely does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps serve and why are they essential SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file which contains the different pages of an Internet site and the path to them through the sections of the Internet site. The webpages can be arranged visually or as simple text and this kind of a file is really useful for two reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the visitors to discover a specific page they need, which means that they can navigate your site better and a lot quicker, that in turn will improve their user experience and it will be more likely that they will revisit the website or will recommend it to other people. One more reason is that a sitemap enables search engines to index your website content better, especially when it's updated, so if users are searching for particular content, it's more likely that they will come across your Internet site because it will be listed higher in their search engine results. In case your site is not indexed well, it may not show up for some searches, so even when you have what people need, they will not get to your Internet site.
