submit your site maps automatically Powered By Docstoc
					A site map (or sitemap) 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
andsearch engine bots find pages on the site.
While some developers argue that site index is a more appropriately used
term to relay page function, web visitors are used to seeing each term
and generally associate both as one and the same. However, a site index
is often used to mean an A-Z index that provides access to particular
content, while a site map provides a general top-down view of the overall
site contents.
XML is a document structure and encoding standard used, amongst many
other things, as the standard for webcrawlers to find and parse sitemaps.
There is an example of an XML sitemap below (missing link to site). The
instructions to the sitemap are given to the crawler bot by a Robots Text
file, an example of this is also given below. Site maps can improve
search engine optimization of a site by making sure that all the pages
can be found. This is especially important if a site uses a dynamic
access to content such as Adobe Flash orJavaScript menus that do not
include HTML links.
They also act as a navigation aid by providing an overview of a site's
content at a single glance.
