Understand how sitemap generators work, learn how to make use of them and discover why sitemaps are very essential for the search engines.
A sitemap is a file that contains the different pages of a site and the path to them through the sections of the website. The web pages can be sorted visually or as simple text and this kind of a file is very useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the site visitors to find a particular page they need, which means that they can navigate your Internet site better and much faster, which in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will return to the website or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is the fact that a sitemap allows search engines to index your website content better, particularly when it's updated, so if users are interested in specific content, it's much more likely that they will find your site because it will be listed higher in their search engine results. If your site is not indexed well, it may not appear for some searches, so even if you have what people require, they will not get to your site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Hosting
In case you host your websites in a shared hosting
account from our firm, you will have a really intuitive sitemap generator at your disposal. This tool can be accessed from the Hepsia Control Panel and it will permit you to select any of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be generated in the site directory where you want it. The simple user interface will enable you to select the overall number of links which have to be indexed and how deep the indexing should go. As a more advanced feature, you can also choose the file extensions that have to be included inside the sitemap - you may use the standard ones which include all most popular extensions a website uses which include php, html, etcetera, but in case your website contains more diverse content, you will be able to enter or delete an extension before you create the sitemap for a selected website.
