    Re: Site Map -- Is it Necessary

    Site map is a term coined and used for a site to show a list of important pages of a site, To avoid the homepage or any other page look cluttered sitemaps are created and connected to an important page of the site, Mostly it is connected to the homepage of a site,

    There has been various debates across various forums whether a sitemap is essential for a site, As an opinion of search engine genie we suggest adding a site map to your site, Site maps help in various ways both for visiting search engines and regular visitors,

    Some benefits of sitemaps on a site,

    1. Users wont get lost of your site if you run a big site, If you connect your important pages in your site map users can navigate easily to any page listed in the sitemap and return to the main page without loosing their path,

    2. For large sites it is difficult to navigate deeper and deeper, A good sitemap prevents this and users can navigate to any page without getting lost, Also most of the inner pages will come more closer to the homepage and this helps effectively in good navigation,

    3. Not all search engine crawlers crawl a site deeper and deeper, Some crawlers like yahoo slurp tend to go into a site only to a certain extent, For crawlers like slurp pages shouldnt be buried deeper, A sitemap will combat this problem, When a site map is used pages will come closer to top level and this help yahoo's crawler slurp to reach inner pages too,

    4. Also suppose if a site has javascript menus, DHTM menus and other menus that are not search engine friendly a sitemap will definitely help in better crawling of a site, A sitemap with text only links to inner pages is very much useful,

    5. Sitemaps also help in better spreading of a pagerank, Pagerank google's trademark algorithm

    Site maps are good for large sites as well as small sites, Hope our tips on sitemaps will give your site a better exposure to search engines

    Re: Site Map -- Is it Necessary

    A sitemap is a list of all of your site pages which has 4 main types of formats including XML, TXT, HTML and ROR and even more. Sitemaps help ensure all new and difficult-to-find pages are indexed quickly and completely, and are particularly useful for websites that are difficult for search engines to crawl and index effectively.

    A sitemap gives search engine spiders a point of reference for all pages on the site, enabling them to index the entire website quickly and easily.

    Re: Site Map -- Is it Necessary

    Two kinds of sitemaps:

    One that helps your visitor navigate your content, which is an html page with links to your content, and the other is the xml sitemap to submit to Google. If you want to be taken seriously by Google or any of the others, you should have one. Then you can register it at Googles Webmaster Tools, and see it they find it, see if it has errors, and/or was successfully read.

    Sitemap tells search crawler that this page added in site and ready to indexed by search engines

    Site Map is very important part of a website. If you can't index your website or page in any search engine visitors can't find out your site or page. and any search engine won't show your website or page. So you need to index your site any search engine. You can index your site in Google.

    It's not necessary, but it's a very valuable thing to have it on your website. If you have a good sitemap, the bounce rate will decrease for sure.
