      A site map (or sitemap) is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. It can be either a document in any form used as a planning tool for Web design, or aWeb page that lists the pages on a Web site, typically organized in hierarchical fashion.

      Search engines use sitemap data to analyze website structure and discover the pages which in normal situation may takes months together.

          Hi saurabhsays. Great information, thanks for sharing. Do you recommend that ALL websites have a sitemap? Does having a sitemap increase your website's rank on Google?

            I agree that a sitemap helps navigation.  As also stated, get a google webmaster account.  One only needs to be modestly proficient to benefit from a google webmaster account.  Benefits include being able to see which of your pages were visited the most and how often, per day, week, and month.  It will also alert you if Google sees any serious problems on your site such such as if some of your links come from what Google sees as bad sites.  If Google sees something else is happening on your site it really doesn't like, it will probably send you an E-mail and warn you first, before it takes a bad action against you.  This may happen because others are working on your site and doing things you may not know about.  This will let you see a lot of what is happening. It will also tell you how long people are staying on a page.  That may tell you to revamp a page if people get on a page then get off quickly.   Finally, it will let you ask Google to crawl a new page very quickly instead of letting the bots find it.   Much more, but those are some key benefits.  It is easy to use.  SBLD
