How exactly does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps have and why are they essential SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a visual or text map of a site - an index of all pages grouped in sections as they appear on the site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence can have a crucial influence on the popularity of your website, especially when you have more content. It will enable your site visitors to go through the web pages and find what they need faster, which will raise the possibility for them to return to the site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also essential for search engines to index your site content better, which means that certain pages will show up in the results for certain searches, which might not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the required content. This is especially valid if you update some webpages as the sitemap tells the search engines that they need to crawl the website again in order to index the latest content. Having a sitemap today is fundamental rather than an optional attribute for any prosperous site.

Being part of the Hepsia Control Panel, the tool shares the exact same simple and easy-to-work-with interface, so it will take you a few clicks to create a detailed sitemap that will be search engine friendly. The generator allows you to choose the maximum number of links the sitemap must include and how many levels down the pages these links have to go.
