    A sitemap basically complies all your page links into an XML file which can be used for search engines to crawl all those pages instead of just your homepage. A lot of times, Google will not index all your pages without a sitemap due to the site's setup or just how the bot recognizes your links.

    By the help of site map ,all the pages will get indexed easily in search engines.You will get Unlimited sitemap in xml,ror,txt,html format only better than purchase it. A sitemap contains all the pages of your website. It is not necessary but most pages it contain either in deep level or not.

    A Sitemap enable a search engine to index all pages contained within the XML file. Make sure that all the pages are ok and not broken.

    A sitemap is a file, usually in HTML or XML format, where links to the important pages on the site are gathered in one place. Sitemaps are useful both for human visitors because they help navigation and for search engines.

    Sitemaps are an easy way for webmasters to inform search engines about pages on their sites that are available for crawling. In its simplest form, a Sitemap is an XML file that lists URLs for a site along with additional metadata about each URL (when it was last updated, how often it usually changes, and how important it is, relative to other URLs in the site) so that search engines can more intelligently crawl the site.

    Sitemap is the collection of all pages in your site . Its the easy way for google search engine to crawl all pages of your site. Without sitemap it is not sure that all pages be indexed by crawler .

    A sitemap actually helps search engines to crawl a site easily as a sitemap gives access to pages easily.

    In simple words, sitemap, just like the name shows is a map for your site, with which, it will guide spider to offer a quick and full crawl for all pages in your site, which is good for a quick and full index, which is important for a good ranking.
