Benefits of sitemap

Discussion in 'Google Sitemaps' started by JohnUK, Apr 28, 2009.

    Is there any point in building a site map if google has found all the pages and checks them regularly anyway? Does it improve your search engine results or anything?

    Thanks

    Sitemap is always important .If google has indexed all your pages as of now then there is no issue but in future you may add new pages to your website in such case if you have not created sitemap and resubmit in webmastertools ,Google will take more time to index your new pages. for further information visit http://www.themedseoservices.com and get more details about SEO

    I also found that submitting a sitemap does seem to get your site pages indexed faster.

    If you have done all the right on page and off page seo stuff you don't need to worry about a sitemap.

    Sitemaps serves for two reasons:

    1) SE bots can easily visit all your pages so more chances for indexing.
    2) Site visitors can easily navigate all your pages without any difficulty.

    Using Sitemaps is a best practice .

    I would suggest creating a sitemap and create a link to sitemap in your site but don't submit it anywhere. Just let crawlers come and pick it up naturally. Your website will be indexed so much more since you seem to grow through backlinks.

    With everything else being equal, if one site has a sitemap and the other doesn't, my opinion is that the one with the sitemap will do better. It's hard to prove though unless you're a Google insider.

    Sitemap is an additional tool to help the search engines when they crawl a site. There is no requirement for any sitemap and your pages will get indexed without them if you pay close attention to navigation within your site.

    Sitemaps just makes it easier for the spiders to crawl your site as only the links of your pages are seen.

    Sitemap means direct welcome or invitation to Google Bots to your site....and who dont want google bots for indexing your pages..it's like a media camera for common man to become famous or uncommon...so inSitemap is playing vital role in SEO processes..

    The reason to build sitemap is to give google full list of your urls thus enable them to crawl every single url of your site.

    The sitemap is to benefit the people who visit your site and give them a quick and easy way to navigate your site. A sitemap has a benefit for the search engines as well.
