How to create HTML Sitemap and how does it help a website

An HTML sitemap allows site visitors to easily navigate a website. It is a bulleted outline text version of the site navigation. The anchor text displayed in the outline is linked to the page it references. Site visitors can go to the Sitemap to locate a topic they are unable to find by searching the site or navigating through the site menus.

This Sitemap can also be created in XML format and submitted to search engines so they can crawl the website in a more effective manner. Using the Sitemap, search engines become aware of every page on the site, including any URLs that are not discovered through the normal crawling process used by the engine. Sitemaps are helpful if a site has dynamic content, is new and does not have many links to it, or contains a lot of archived content that is not well-linked.

An example of HTML sitemap, created for xml-sitemaps.com: sitemap.html (separated with 1,000 links per page)

“The broken links report are a God send.

After adding new content to my site the generator alerted me to 256 broken links which I would never have know about and helped me fix the problem quickly.”

“Although my web design apps generate site maps automatically, I have experienced Google incompatibility issues with these in the past and have stopped using them.

Your generator is total simplicity to use and is 100% reliable. Enough said!”

“I love your sitemap generator.

It's incredibly fast even on websites with thousands of pages. Before I found this software, I would spend days trying to put together sitemaps. It would timeout, restart, lose everything - what a nightmare.

No such issues with this software. THANKS!”
