In this post, we will walk through all the importance of Sitemaps, why you need sitemaps, how to create sitemaps and much more. I am happy to see you around here. Now, it will be easier for me to walk through this. Here we go.
What are Sitemaps?
Sitemaps are actually just a simple page that can be in HTML, XML or other parseable web language that contain all the URLs of a particular blog or site. These pages actually can be linked to from the footer . Or can be linked from the sidebar. The decision is with you. Either way, it is equally useful. No need to doubt it. Your sitemap can be on some else page, self hosted or just an Google Sites page.
What is The Importance Of Sitemaps?
Sitemaps are always useful. They never should be avoided. Wait, let me explain. Sitemaps allows you to simply specify all the pages that you want to be indexed. Moreover, you can make sure by this that none of your posts/pages or products get left behind.
Sitemaps, if planned properly might allow search engines like Google to successfully discover pages on your site without a clutter. In a sitemap, a search engine bot can retain all your important URL and save them to be indexed.
I do not understand The Importance Of Sitemaps, what can happen Otherwise?
Otherwise, all the pages on your site will depend on links from your homepage or some other pages to be discovered by search engines. And there are huge chances that some of your(important) pages are not successfully indexed. That way, google will never know that some page by that name even ever existed on your site. Even if your web directory have that page.
Search engine bots have a particular time specified for finding and crawling sites. If your pages are not found in that way, they won’t be ever! That is why i am discussing the importance of sitemaps with you. Sitemaps are best for ecommerce portals and large websites.
Everybody uses it!
Importance of sitemaps can be estimated by the fact that almost every site on the net uses it. Have a doubt? check mine. There is a link in my footer copyright text that links to my sitemap. You can view it anytime. But, i have placed it there for the search engines to discover. Best of luck and please use sitemaps.
