A sitemap is a file that includes the different pages of a website and the path to them through the sections of the Internet site. The webpages can be sorted visually or as plain text and this kind of a file is rather useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it faster and easier for the website visitors to discover a specific page they need, so that they can navigate your website better and quicker, that in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will revisit the website or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is that a sitemap makes it possible for search engines to index your site content better, especially if it's updated, so when users are looking for specific content, it's much more likely that they will come across your Internet site because it will be listed higher in their search engine results. If your site is not indexed effectively, it may not show up for some searches, so even in case you have what people need, they will simply not get to your website.
SiteMap Generator in Cloud Web Hosting
If you host your websites in a cloud web hosting account from our company, you'll have a really time and effort saving sitemap generator readily available. This tool can be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll allow you to pick any of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be generated in the website directory where you need it. The simple user interface will enable you to choose the overall number of links which should be indexed and how deep the indexing has to go. As a more complex feature, you could also choose the file extensions that should be included within the sitemap - you may use the default ones that include all most common extensions an Internet site uses such as php, html, etcetera, but if your Internet site features more diverse content, you'll be able to enter or delete an extension before you generate the sitemap for a given website.
