How does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps serve and why are they extremely important SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file that contains the different pages of a site and the route to them through the sections of the Internet site. The web pages can be sorted visually or as simple text and this sort of a file is rather useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it faster and easier for the website visitors to locate a particular page they need, which means that they can navigate your website better and quicker, which in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will return to the site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap enables search engines to index your content better, especially when it is updated, so when users are searching for particular content, it's more likely that they'll find your site because it will be listed higher in their search results. In case your site is not indexed well, it might not appear for some searches, so even in case you have what people need, they will not get to your site.
