There are actually a couple of different types of sitemaps, such as a visual one that you can create before building a website, but we’re going to focus on the one that is most important for SEO.

This is known as an XML sitemap. It’s simply a list of the pages on your website.

Think of it as a map for your website. It shows what all of the pages are on your website.

HTML sitemap is a plain text sitemap used by browsers to know and surf through your website pages. XML sitemap is a coded sitemap used to submit in webmaster tool to help spiders crawl them and index the webpages in search engines.

Here’s what Google has to say about sitemaps:

A sitemap is a file where you can list the web pages of your site to tell Google and other search engines about the organization of your site content. Search engine web crawlers like Googlebot read this file to more intelligently crawl your site.

This also tells us why a sitemap is important:

It tells the search engines about the content that you have on your site so that they can find it more easily and when it was last updated.
