How precisely does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps have and why are they extremely important SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - a short list of all pages arranged in sections as they show up on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a crucial effect on the popularity of your site, especially when you have a lot of content. It will enable site visitors to go through the pages and find what they need much faster, that will increase the chance for them to revisit the Internet site or to share it with colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also needed for search engines like google to index your site content better, so that certain pages will show up in the results for certain searches, which will most likely not happen without a sitemap even if you have the necessary content. This is especially valid in case you update some pages since the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl this website again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap nowadays is a necessity rather than an optional attribute for any successful website.
