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.

Very impressed by your service. My initial questions were answered in minutes, the installation was speedy and the follow up support is excellent.
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.
Your online generator is fabulous. It's so intuitive and easy to use.
If there is an award for Most Useful Tool Online, this surely gets my vote.
What a fabulous resource you have given us. Besides the sitemaps generated, your link checked for broken links has saved me many hours.
