What is Sitemap and how do we use it?
A site map is a web page that lists all of the other web pages on a web site.
A site map augments, but does not replace, the normal menu system of a web page.
Sitemap allows search engines to crawl the pages that are hard to find, pages that are not been linked to from other pages.
Sitemap for Users (is a bit different comparing with a Sitemap for search engines to crawl)
A site map can also be very beneficial to web users, because it will help them to understand what resources the web page has for them.
A site map should be very well organized and easy to understand. The design should be clean and simple.
