How does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What purpose do sitemaps have and why are they vital SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file that includes the different pages of a website and the path to them through the sections of the site. The webpages can be sorted visually or as simple text and such a file is rather useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it faster and easier for the website visitors to discover a specific page they need, so that they can navigate your website better and faster, that in turn will improve their user experience and it will be more likely that they will return to the site or will recommend it to other people. Another reason is that a sitemap enables search engines to index your site content better, particularly if it's updated, so if users are trying to find specific content, it is more likely that they will find your Internet site since it will be listed higher in their search results. If your site is not indexed properly, it might not show up for some searches, so even if you have what people need, they will simply not get to your site.
