Sitemap??
« on: 11-08-2011, 06:05:45 »
Hey friends,

I was wondering, do I really need a sitemap if my site contains several static pages only? Content is static as I am offering services which does not change daily so was wondering if sitemap has any value to my site or no?

Any help highly appreciated here.

Thanks
Smith Jones

If your site contains more pages and more data to your site then you need sitemap on your site. So that visitor can get easily access for the demanded page and not get confusion.

Sitemaps are of utmost importance when it comes to optimising large websites. Although adding a sitemap to a website will not directly increase your rankings it will make it easier for Google to index pages, which will indirectly impact on rankings.

A site map is a list of pages of a web site accessible to crawlers or users. It can be either a document in any form used as a planning tool for web design, or a web page that lists the pages on a web site, typically organized in hierarchical fashion. This helps visitors and search engine bots find pages on the site.

It's always better to have a sitemap, Google will index your pages faster and knows what to do with it.

I think that the question wasn’t really about the usefulness of sitemaps as such in general, but how useful one is for a small site which doesn’t change often. If all your pages are already indexed then really a sitemap isn’t going to make any difference to the search engines. But you can get one done for free easily enough from places like freesitemapgenerator.com, and it wouldn’t hurt to submit it to Google and Bing and then only update it and resubmit it if/when you make changes to your site .
