A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - an index of all pages organized in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence can have a significant influence on the popularity of your website, particularly if you have a lot of content. It will enable your website visitors to look through the webpages and find what they need way quicker, that will increase the chance for them to return to the Internet site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your site content better, so that some pages will appear in the results for specific searches, which will most likely not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the desired site content. This is especially valid if you update some webpages because the sitemap informs the search engines that they must crawl this website again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap these days is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for any profitable Internet site.
SiteMap Generator in Web Hosting
If you host your websites in a web hosting account from our firm, you'll have a very easy-to-use sitemap generator readily available. The tool can be accessed via the Hepsia Control Panel and it will enable you to pick any one of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be created in the site directory where you need it. The simple user interface will allow you to pick the total number of links that have to be indexed and how deep the indexing should go. As a more advanced function, you can even choose the file extensions which have to be included inside the sitemap - you may use the standard ones which include all most common extensions a site uses for example php, html, etc, but in case your site contains more diverse content, you'll be able to enter or delete an extension before you make the sitemap for a selected Internet site.
