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 website - a short list of all web pages organized in sections as they appear on the Internet site. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a substantial influence on the popularity of your website, particularly when you have a lot of content. It will make it possible for site visitors to go through the web pages and find what they need quicker, that will increase the chance for them to return to the site or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also needed for search engines like google to index your site content better, so certain pages will appear in the results for specific searches, which may not happen without a sitemap even if you have the necessary site content. This is especially valid in case you update some web pages since the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl the site again so as to index the latest content. Having a sitemap today is essential rather than an optional feature for every profitable Internet site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Hosting
If you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from our firm, you will have a very easy-to-work-with sitemap generator readily available. The software tool can be accessed through the Hepsia Control Panel and it'll enable you to pick any one of your domains or subdomains, so the sitemap file will be created in the website directory where you want it. The simple user interface will allow you to pick the total number of links that should be indexed and how deep the indexing has to go. As a more complex feature, you could also pick the file extensions that should be included within the sitemap - you can use the default ones that include all most popular extensions a site uses which include php, html, etcetera, but if your Internet site includes more diverse content, you'll be able to enter or delete an extension before you make the sitemap for a given site.
