Thread: About Site Map.

  1. #1

    Smile About Site Map.

    what is site map ?
    site map is an on-site directory of important pages. Sitemaps have been divided into XML site maps and TXT site maps which are used by search engines, and HTML site maps which are used by visitors for quick navigation to deep content. Some specialized site maps may only list certain types of content.

  3. Using site maps, visitor can easily looking for what they need. Based on my experience, xml site map its recommended for another, especially if you want increase rank in major search engine.

    An XML sitemap has no effect on rankings. It is simple there to help spiders find obscure pages in large web sites. It has no benefit whatsoever in a small web site.

    Sitemap is essential for improving your ranking in two ways like search engine crawler and direct visitor of your website. But more preferable is .xml site map only.

  7. Using site maps, you can improve your site performance for search engine. Why? Using site map, Google robot will be easily crawl your pages that update regularly.

    If a site has less than 50 pages and is structured properly, an XML sitemap will not do anything to improve anything. The sole purpose for a XML sitemap is to help spiders find obscure pages that get buried in a large or poorly structured web site.

    I find it that for small sites like mine sitemaps are completely pointless. I don't think it will boost your search rank one bit.

    Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling.
