Sitemaps are a useful tool for site visitors and search engines alike, but only when up to date. Sitemaps offer visitors an alternative way to navigate your website in one single view. More importantly they tell search engines the pages of your website that you want crawled, the priority or hierarchy of your content, and when your pages were last updated.
To be truly effective, sitemaps should be delivered in two ways: on a page that site visitors can easily browse to find information, and as an XML feed for search engines to crawl.
