Sitemaps standard or protocol provide a basic communication link or channel between the search engines spider/crawler and the websites sitemap. Before the protocol html sitemaps were used and are not upto the mark as far as performance was concerned. Theoretically search engines need to use less processing power as they have the overview of the site available with them and can help to find them all the urls of a website with ease and risk of leaving the site before it is crawled wholely is reduced.

I think not one we have many benefits of using sitemap.xml . Lets have a look:
1. Easier navigation
2. Better visibility by search engines (opportunity to inform search engines immediately about any changes on your site)
3.  Sitemaps can even help with messy internal links

Sitemap might not generate huge advantages right away but as search engines improve their sitemap indexing algorithms, it is expected that more and more sites will be indexed fast via sitemaps.

Hi, I want to tell you about some benefits of sitemap.xml! So, there are 3 advantages, they are:
1. Your sitemap can list all URLs from your site. This could include pages that aren't otherwise discoverable by the search engines.
2. Giving the search engines priority information. There is an optional tag in the sitemap for the priority of the page. This is an indication of how important a given page is relevant to all the others on your site. This allows the search engines to order the crawling of their website based on priority information.
3. Passing temporal information. Two other optional tags (lastmod and changefreq) pass more information to the search engines that should help them crawl your site in a more optimal way. "lastmod" tells them when a page last changed, and changefreq indicates how often the page is likely to change.

An XML protocol helps search engines better understand your all of your web page of your website while crawling it. Sitemaps allow search engines to find all of your webpages that they might otherwise miss when indexing.

XML Sitemap like a blueprint for your house and each web page were a room.
XML Sitemaps are important for SEO because they make it easier for Google to find your site’s pages—this is important because Google ranks web PAGES not just websites.

Using sitemaps has many benefits, not only easier navigation and better visibility by search engines. Sitemaps offer the opportunity to inform search engines immediately about any changes on your site. Of course, you cannot expect that search engines will rush right away to index your changed pages but certainly the changes will be indexed faster, compared to when you don't have a sitemap.

Utilizing sitemaps has numerous advantages, not just less demanding route and better perceivability via web crawlers. Sitemaps offer the chance to illuminate web indexes promptly about any progressions on your website. Obviously, you can't expect that internet searchers will surge immediately to list your changed pages however surely the progressions will be filed speedier, contrasted with when you don't have a sitemap.
