A sitemap is a visual or text map of an Internet site - an index of all web pages organized in sections as they show up on the website. The sitemap is a single file and its presence could have a crucial influence on the popularity of your Internet site, especially if you have a lot of content. It will enable site visitors to browse the pages and find what they need much more quickly, which will increase the chance for them to return to the website or to show it to friends and colleagues. The sitemap is also required for search engines to index your content better, so that some pages will be in the results for specific searches, which might not happen without having a sitemap even when you have the required content. This is especially valid in case you update some webpages as the sitemap informs the search engines that they need to crawl this website again so as to index the new content. Having a sitemap today is essential rather than an optional attribute for any prosperous site.

As a more complex feature, you can even choose the file extensions that have to be included inside the sitemap - you can use the default ones which include all most widespread extensions a site uses for instance php, html, etcetera, but if your website features more diverse content, you will be able to enter or delete an extension before you make the sitemap for a particular site.
