    Sitemaps are to let the search engines know what/how to crawl pages within your site. WP has plugins for this. Submit it through your Webmaster tools account in Google.

    XML sitemap is also a type of sitemap. Only search engines can study these sitemaps and its not for human purpose. Many online websites and freeware softwares allows us to create such sitemaps (in free). We've to submit these sitemaps in our google webmaster tool and xml sitemaps helps us to crawl our new page ASAP.
    Thanks

    Benefits to using a xml sitemap -
    1. Your sitemap can list all URLs from your site.

    2. Giving the search engines priority information.

    To create a sitemap -
    1. If you have Wordpress site then simply by installing sitemap plugin to your site, these plugins can generate sitemap after every post you made.

    2. If you have a website( HTML, PHP, etc) try online sitemap generator, they are free for certain range of URL and dose the job well. After you get sitemap.xml file upload it to the www or parent directory of your website.

    You can use webmaster tool to get your sitemap URL indexed.

    Keep in mind that sitemap should be in XML format only.
    Hope this helps.

    Best and most suitable way is by installing a plugin.
    Now choice of plugin depends on the needs of the users. If you already have seo in control then use a simple sitemap generator plugin. Other wise as stated by other users, seo yoast and other plugins can be used.

    Mainly search engines get to know about the site by going through the sitemaps.

    xml sitemaps are a lot important. I'm not saying that without them the crawlers will not find your website and your pages will not be indexed. but the sitemap helps a lot in this process. your's saying the crawlers where are your pages and how to reach them. it's a lot useful.

    Sitemap can be a summary of pages over a website which is offered to any or all clients. A great XML sitemap is a way for site owners to inform engines like Google concerning all the pages that you can get on their website. You can use Google Webmaster Tools to create account.

    try this free service. It lets you create one up to 500 page. https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/

    If you are using WordPress, I personally like this plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/google-sitemap-generator/

    Once you have the Sitemap you should upload it to Google Webmaster Tools or Bing Webmaster Tools.

    A site map (or sitemap) is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. It can be either a document in any form used as a planning tool for Web design, or a Web page that lists the pages on a Web site, typically organized in hierarchical fashion. Pretty much explained here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Site_map

    firstly there are 2 types of sitemap one is XML and another is HTML. XML is used for search engines where as HTML sitemaps are used for human beings. Sitemap includes the whole history of your blog or website.

    Sitemaps make navigating your site easier and having an updated sitemap on your site is good both for your users and for search engines. Sitemaps are an important way of communication with search engines. While in robots.txt you tell search engines which parts of your site to exclude from indexing, in your site map you tell search engines where you'd like them to go.

    That is it :)

    yes, it's as anyone said in this thread. but they forgot to say the most important thing about sitemaps. They must be updated. So you need a tool to update the sitemap daily or hourly.

    The sitemap actuallly needs to be updated only when there is new content. Unless you come ut with new content within the hour or day, it should ideally be updated as and when new content is out.

    XML Sitemap helps search engine crawlers understand the structure of the website that is the navigation system and to retrieve the web pages more efficiently. It helps in better indexing of your web pages. you can generate XML site here - https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
