What does Sitemap mean?

A Sitemap is a file or page that provides an organized list of URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) for a website's webpages, making it easier for search engines to crawl and index the site's content. Sitemaps are essential for search engine optimization (SEO) and ensuring that all pages are discoverable by search engines.

Sitemaps can be created in XML format (XML Sitemap) or as an HTML page (HTML Sitemap). XML Sitemaps are submitted to search engines, while HTML Sitemaps are often provided for website visitors to navigate.

Sitemaps help search engines understand a website's structure and prioritize indexing of important pages.
