A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - a list of all pages organized in sections as they show up on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a considerable impact on the popularity of your site, especially when you have more content. It will allow your website visitors to search the pages and find what they need much faster, that will raise the possibility for them to return to the website or to share it with colleagues and friends. The sitemap is also essential for search engines to index your site content better, which means that some pages will be in the results for certain searches, which might not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the required content. This is especially valid if you update some webpages as the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the website again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap these days is a necessity rather than an optional feature for any prosperous site.
