A sitemap is a file that contains the different pages of a site and the route to them through the sections of the Internet site. The web pages can be sorted visually or as plain text and this sort of a file is rather useful for two reasons. The first one is that it makes it much easier for the website visitors to discover a particular page they need, so they can navigate your site better and a lot quicker, which in turn will improve their user experience and it'll be more likely that they will come back to the site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap allows search engines to index your content better, particularly if it is updated, so when users are searching for certain content, it's much more likely that they'll find your website because it will be listed higher in their search results. In case your Internet site is not indexed well, it might not appear for some searches, so even in case you have what people need, they will simply not get to your site.
