  Do I Need A Site Map

The Importance of a Site map

A site map is often considered redundant in the process of building a website, but NOTHING could be further from the truth. Site maps give structure to a web site and allow search engines to crawl a site and index it quickly and easily.
They are an essential part of a well positioned, cash producing professional web site.
 
1) Navigation purposes
A site map literally acts as a map of your site. If your visitors browses your site and gets lost between the thousands of pages on your site, they can always refer to your site map to see where they are, and navigate through your pages with the utmost ease.
 
2) Conveying your site's theme
When your visitors load up your site map, they will get the gist of your site within a very short amount of time. There is no need to get the "big picture" of your site by reading through each page, and by doing that you will be saving your visitors' time.
 
3) Site optimization purposes
When you create a site map, you are actually creating a single page which contains links to every single page on your site. Imagine what happens when search engine robots hit this page -- they will follow the links on the site map and naturally every single page of your site gets indexed by search engines! It is also for this purpose that a link to the site map has to be placed prominently on the front page of your website.
 
4) Organization and relevance
A site map enables you to have a complete bird's eye view of your site structure, and whenever you need to add new content or new sections, you will be able to take the existing hierarchy into consideration just by glancing at the site map. As a result, you will have a perfectly organized site with everything sorted according to their relevance.
 
As you can see, it is most important to implement a site map for website projects of more than a couple of pages. Through this intelligent addition, you will be able to keep your website easily accessible and neatly organized for everyone, but perhaps most importantly, search engines love site maps, and this will reflect in your sites search position.
