How precisely does the Sitemap Generator 'generate' sitemaps? What role do sitemaps have and why are they vital SEO-wise?
A sitemap is a file that includes the different pages of a site and the path to them through the sections of the site. The web pages can be sorted visually or as simple text and such a file is quite useful for 2 reasons. The first one is that it makes it a lot easier for the site visitors to discover a particular page they need, which means that they can navigate your Internet site better and much faster, which in turn will increase their user experience and it will be more likely that they will come back to the site or will recommend it to other people. The second reason is the fact that a sitemap allows search engines to index your site content better, particularly when it's updated, so when users are looking for particular content, it's much more likely that they will come across your website because it will be listed higher in their search engine results. In case your Internet site is not indexed effectively, it might not appear for some searches, so even if you have what people want, they will not get to the Internet site.
SiteMap Generator in Shared Hosting
Our shared hosting plans feature a sitemap generator that is part of our cutting-edge Hepsia Control Panel. The instrument uses the very same user-friendly Hepsia interface, so you will be able to generate a sitemap for every one of your domains and subdomains with a few clicks even if you haven't had a site before. There are a couple of options, which you can customize - the depth, which shows the total number of levels inside the site the sitemap should follow links, the highest number of links which have to be included and what file types will be visible on the sitemap. For the aforementioned option, you can type or delete certain file extensions, which can be rather helpful in case you have files which are not generic for a site like php or html, but are pdf or mp3 files, for example. That way, your custom content will be incorporated in the sitemap along with the webpages.
