How to create and use HTML Sitemaps and how would that help your 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.

I am extremely happy with your new "stand alone" Sitemap Script! The software is very easy to setup and use, even for a novice! I immediately found out that many of our sites had not been properly indexed since mid 2006!!! YIKES!
For the money, you can't beat this script!
A great tool, perfect for adding a sitemap to Google's Webmaster Tools. It was simple to use and very quick, I will continue to use your great service. I have tried many others but I personally feel this is the best, no only because of a well designed script but the site also looks nice.
I have been using a ror sitemap that seemed to work well until recently, then Google reported errors on it that I didn't really understand. I found your online xml sitemap generator, created and submitted the sitemap to Google and within minutes they reported it as ok. I am so pleased, I am going to recommend your website to friends and also in forums.
What a fabulous resource you have given us. Besides the sitemaps generated, your link checked for broken links has saved me many hours.
John W. Chapman,
I love your online site generator. Finding your website ended many hours of struggle to understand sitemaps. It's so easy to use and the broken links function is extremely helpful.
Unbelieveable! This was extremely easy to understand--especially for the "not so computer savvy" and the tech support helped me incredibly.
The SAME day my sitemap was submitted to Google by tech support, my site was indexed. I am absolutely thrilled and wish I had found you all sooner!
