A sitemap is a file which contains the different pages of a website and the path to them through the sections of the Internet site. The pages can be arranged visually or as plain text and this kind of a file is very useful for two reasons. The first one is that it makes it faster and easier for the website visitors to locate a specific page they need, which means that they can navigate your site better and much 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. One more reason is the fact that a sitemap permits search engines to index your site content better, particularly when it is updated, so if users are looking for specific content, it is more likely that they'll find your Internet site because it will be listed higher in their search results. If your Internet site is not indexed properly, it may not show up for some searches, so even in case you have what people want, they will simply not get to your site.
