How exactly does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps have and why are they essential SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file which includes the different pages of a site and the way to them through the sections of the website. The web pages can be organized visually or as simple text and such a file is extremely useful for two reasons. The first is that it makes it much easier for the website visitors to find a certain page they need, so they can navigate your site better and a lot faster, that 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. Another reason is that a sitemap makes it possible for search engines to index your site content better, particularly if it is updated, so when users are searching for particular content, it's much more likely that they'll come across your site since it will be listed higher in their search results. If your site is not indexed efficiently, it may not show up for some searches, so even when you have what people need, they will not get to your website.
