Generate a sitemap for Google to index
A sitemap is a way of organizing a website, identifying the URLs and the data under each section. Previously, the sitemaps were primarily geared for the users of the website. However, Google's XML format was designed for the search engines, allowing them to find the data faster and more efficiently.
A sitemap allows the crawlers of your site to get to all areas of your website no matter the size.
1. Link Search Engines:
Using a sitemap has so many benefits. Not only is it easier to navigate, but it gives better visibility to search engines. Sitemaps can offer the opportunity to link search engines with any changes made to the site immediately after they happen. Additionally, when there is a sitemap link to a website, and it is submitted to search engines, you will rely on external links less when search engines are bringing visitors to your website. Sitemaps well even aid in helping fix poor internal linking. For example, if there are accidentally broken links or orphan pages that cannot be reached. It should be noted that it is not a wise idea to rely on a sitemap rather than just fixing your errors.
2. Get reports for individual pages of your site:
If the website is new or if there are a significant number of new or recently updated pages, then using a sitemap is extremely important in contributing to your success. Although it is possible to go on without a sitemap, sitemaps will inevitably become the standard for submitting a site to search engines. Regardless of this, crawlers will continue to index the internet, and sitemaps will not make this standard procedure for crawling obsolete. It is logical to say that sitemaps will only gain more importance.
Who should use this addon?
The sitemap is useful for :
1. Content Managers
The creation of content is a tedious process, and costly. It is therefore only reasonable that you ensure that all pages of a website are well indexed by the search engines and users can find the information with ease. This is possible with the help of XML and HTML sitemaps that can be created using a sitemap generator.
2. Marketer & SEO Experts
Exposure is the pillar of success in business; the more exposed products and/or services are, the higher the conversion rates and profits. Therefore, online marketers and search engines optimization experts must use sitemap generators to boost the website’s ranking.
Webmasters understand the technicalities of running websites. They interact with the site daily and therefore should offer guidance to the rest of the team on what is best for the business. They take the lead when creating sitemaps because they have advanced coding knowledge and can ensure that the sitemaps are error-free and submitted as expected.
A sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site.
Why use this?
Sitemaps are important for SEO because they make it easier for Google to find your site's pages—this is important because Google ranks web PAGES, not just websites. There is no downside of having an XML Sitemap and having one can improve your SEO, so we highly recommend them.
Google often uses the sitemap file as a guide to the pages available on your website — even though it may decide not to index every page you list on your sitemap.
