    Sitemaps are created for search engines to understand the structure of your website as well as pages you have. There are special online tools to create the map online and later you just put the code or upload the file to your website

    The XML sitemap is used to tell the SE spiders to the website structure and how many URLs in the website and how they link. With the help of XML sitemap SE spiders easily understand the structure of the website and crawl your links easily during crawling process but it is not necessary if you submit the XML sitemap so all of your links get indexed. It is up to you to provide the XML sitemap on your site or not but for large size website, it is important.

    It lists the URL for a site and allows the webmasters to include additional information about the URL.

    Sorry cant tell you how.. but i can tell you why..


    Sitemaps are a protocol that allows the webmaster for a website to inform Google and other major search engines about URLS on a website that are available for crawling. Sitemaps allow search engines to find all of your webpages, that they might otherwise miss when indexing. The XML sitemap allows you to specify additional information about each URL such as:

    • When it was last updated
    • How often the site changes
    • How important the page is in relation to other pages on the site
    Having this information within one document helps search engines understand your website and crawl it more intelligently. Sitemaps are an inclusion protocol, where Robots.txt files are exclusionary.

    Good question! Think of your website as a house and each page of your site as a room. You can think of an XML Sitemap like a blueprint for your house and each web page was a room, your XML Sitemap would be a blueprint—making it easy for Google, the proverbial home inspector of the web—to quickly and easily find all the rooms within your house. XML Sitemaps are important for SEO because they make it easier for Google to find your site’s pages—this is important because Google ranks web PAGES, not just websites.
    A sitemap is a list of pages of a website. Sitemaps used during the planning of a Web site by its designers. Human-visible listings, typically hierarchical, of the pages on a site. Structured listings intended for web crawlers such as

    XML sitemap acts as a road map of your website which leads Google to all your important pages. XML sitemaps can be good for SEO, as they allow Google to quickly find your essential website pages, even if your internal linking isn’t perfect.

    XML sitemap lets search engines to know about the number of web-pages available within the website. In general,sitemaps are road maps to the website pages.

    Basically Search Engines rank website pages, the XML Sitemaps are important for Search Engine Optimization, as they make it easier for Search Engines to find the website page. A site map in a website, can be a hierarchical list of pages (with links) organized by topic or an XML document that provides instructions to Search Engine crawl bots.

    The XML sitemaps are just text files marked up with tags that identify types of data. The URL for an XML sitemap is typically at the root of a domain.
    The Sitemaps protocol allows a webmaster to inform Search Engines about URLs on a website that are available for crawling.

    Sitemaps make navigating the website easier, and when you have an updated sitemap for your website it is good not only for yourself but search engines as well. Sitemaps are a very important way for a website to communicate with a search engine.

    Sitemaps help google's bots determine and locate the webpages to crawl. There are plug-ins available on WordPress for this purpose, like Yoast SEO etc.

    A Sitemap is an XML file that lists the URLs for a site. It allows webmasters to include additional information about each URL: when it was last updated, how often it changes, and how important it is in relation to other URLs of the site.

    XML site map organizes your sites in a category that makes a site’s structure as clear as possible.
    That map helps google to lead all your site’s important pages quickly.
    This allows search engines to crawl the site more efficiently and to find URLs that may be isolated from the rest of the site's content.

    In simple words, the XML Sitemap is the file that contains the list of links of your website in the form of XML and tells Search Engine Crawler to about it. How many links your website have? what to indexed in the structural way.

    Pro Tip: HTML map for the human being user to understand the website pages and their location whereas XML sitemap for the search engine crawler to understand the links and their location.

    Additionally, There are a lot of tools are available on the internet to create the XML sitemaps for free. I personally use https://www.xml-sitemaps.com/
