A sitemap is a visual or text map of a website - an index of all pages arranged in sections as they appear on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence may have a significant effect on the popularity of your website, especially when you have more content. It will enable site visitors to go through the web pages and find what they need much more quickly, that will increase the chance for them to revisit the website or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also needed for search engines to index your site content better, so certain pages will be in the results for specific searches, which will most likely not happen without having a sitemap even if you have the needed site content. This is especially valid when you update some webpages because the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl this website again to index the latest content. Having a sitemap today is fundamental rather than an optional feature for any profitable website.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Web Hosting
In case you host your sites in a shared web hosting account from our firm, you will have a really easy-to-work-with sitemap generator readily available. The tool can be accessed via the Hepsia Control Panel and it will allow you to pick any one of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be generated in the website directory where you want it. The straightforward interface will permit you to choose the total number of links that need to be indexed and how deep the indexing has to go. As a more advanced function, you can even pick the file extensions which have to be included within the sitemap - you may use the default ones which include all most common extensions a site uses for instance php, html, etc, but if your website features more diverse content, you can also enter or delete an extension before you generate the sitemap for a certain website.
