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 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.
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!
Refreshingly clear, easy to use, fast! The Google sitemap online help could learn a lot from you.
Thanks for having saved me hours.
It's remarkable how easy this was. I've been pondering using Google's sitemap generator, its completely unreasonable. My sitemap generated in 6.4 seconds, was accepted by Google with no problem.
You have a great product!
Thanks, (I am sending a donation)
I just wanted to say that your sitemap service is the absolute easiest and most convenient way to create a sitemap that I've ever found.
You've saved me tons of time. Keep up the good work!
Strongly recommend this for webmasters who's managing multiple websites. This tool has literally cut down our work time for around 30 minutes per site. Multiply that with the number of sites we're managing, that is alot of hours!
It's also made our job of updating the sitemap alot easier. Thanks for keeping this tool free.
